Abstract

A 5-year-old female Siamang (Hylobates syndactilus) in captivity sustained a displaced closed fracture of the proximal phalanx of the middle digit, resulting in finger deform- ity and hand functional disability. Anatomical reduction and stabilization of the frac- ture were obtained surgically using two multifilament wire sutures. The primate had a successful functional recovery.
