Tear in Extensor tendon of thumb
My brother got injured while playing cricket on his thumb in Bahrain, doctors there have asked him to undergo surgery to correct the bentness of his thumb. Attaching thumb image and report image. Please advice. Thumb doesnt become straight, if tried to do forcibly it hurts him. During normal circumstance there is no pain.

Get operated, goal keepers thumb is difficult to manage conservatively. Also, terminal extension lag mostly remains. Young boy, surgery preferred especially if this is the dominant hand.

From the picture and the report looks like what is called a mallet finger where the fragment has to be reattached so that extension is possible. Will need surgery. Everybody does not want to undergo surgery, but when required one has to do it.
