Also known as baseball finger, mallet finger is a condition in which a fingertip cannot straighten due to an injury to the extensor tendon. Most incidences of mallet finger can be effectively resolved without the need for surgery. Various splints are available that hold the fingertip straight until the tendon naturally repairs itself, typically at least 8 weeks, after which the splint is worn periodically for several weeks to maintain the outcome. However, if a fracture was sustained or the joint is misaligned, surgery may be necessary to fix mallet finger.
