Introduction of an alternative standardized radiographic measurement method to evaluate volar angulation in subcapital fractures of the 5th metacarpal
Skeletal Radiology, 06/04/2012Hoffelner T et al.

Therefore, the authors recommend the use of the novel shaft articular surface (SAS) technique as standardized measurement method which showed higher accuracy and interobserver reliability in order to facilitate the choice of adequate treatment option.
