The purpose

The main objective of this non-interventional, observational study is to analyze the rate and type of infection complications while performing closed reduction internal fixation (CRIF) of hand fractures in the operating room versus an ambulatory setting. The investigators will do so by prospectively collecting data on the type of fracture, handedness, co-morbidities, duration of treatment, number and type of K-wires, duration of fixation and complication rate. Patients presenting with hand fractures to the emergency room will be recruited. Patients will be recruited in multiple centres across Canada and managed according to the institutional standard. The complication type and rate will be recorded and analyzed to determine a difference of performing the procedure in the operating room or clinical setting.
