Carpometacarpal dislocations are relatively rare injuries. Three cases of carpometacarpal dislocations at different sites are presented. Early detection of these injuries enables immediate closed reduction. Maintenance of the reduction in a plaster cast did not prevent redislocation in one case, which required open reduction and internal fixation with a Kirchner wire. Anatomic reduction is recommended to avoid leaving patients with a weak grip and continuous pain.
