We present a case of chronic post-traumatic hyperextension of the PIP joint of the little finger. The volar plate was reattached at the original attachment site of the proximal phalanx using two suture anchors and tenodesis of the radial half slip of the FDS tendon was added. An acceptable result was obtained.
