Background: We hypothesized that ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction is inadequate for metacarpophalangeal joint stabilization in chronic ulnar collateral ligament injuries with volar subluxation due to dorsal joint capsule injury. We consecutively performed both ulnar collateral ligament and dorsal joint capsule reconstruction to treat patients with a chronic ulnar collateral ligament tear with volar subluxation. This study aimed to present our preliminary results and experience with this technique in managing such cases.
