With the diagram arranged in this order, a helpful mnemonic is S A L T E R: the fracture line is I - the Same as the growth plate, II - Above the growth plate, III - Lower than the growth plate, IV - Through the growth plate, and V - Epiphyseal crush: Remember! The common Salter II fracture of the base of the proximal phalanx with deviation toward the border of the hand may be reduced with a local block and a pen or pencil as a fulcrum in the web space.
