It is uncommon to have closed phalangeal fractures together with concurrent vascular injuries. Such artery injuries can be caused by a variety of mechanisms, including direct vascular damage from a broken bone fragment, increased intracranial pressure, or inadvertent vascular tension during reduction procedures. To reduce consequences, acute digital ischemia necessitates the right surgical intervention(s). In addition to a brief review of the relevant literature, the authors provide a case of a closed phalangeal fracture with concurrent digital artery damage.
