Hook of hamate fractures are uncommon injuries with unclear prevalence. Classic presenting symptoms include volar-ulnar hand/wrist pain and weakness in grip, with possible ulnar nerve paresthesias. Patient factors, such as activity level and desired return to work/sport, shape the most appropriate treatment regimen although excision of the hook has been adopted by most surgeons. Overall, once patients receive the correct diagnosis and are treated, good outcomes with high satisfaction rates are expected.
