Hypothenar hammer syndrome: an uncommon and correctable cause of digital ischemia
Lorelli D. R., Shepard A. D.
From the Division of Vascular Surgery Henry Ford Hospital Detroit, Michigan, USA
Hypothenar hammer syndrome (HHS) is the rare entity of finger ischemia secondary to embolic occlusion of the digital arteries as a result of repetitive trauma to the palmar ulnar artery. We report the case of a young man found to have digital embolic complications from an ulnar artery aneurysm. This is thought to have developed as a result of palmar trauma experienced during military rifle drill exercises.
