Fig. 8.  Bennett's and reversed Bennett's fractures.  These similar injuries are carpometacarpal joint fracture dislocations.  In the thumb (Bennett's), the abductor pollicis longus acts as a distracting force, producing subluxation and proximal migration. In the small finger (reversed Bennett's), the extensor carpi ulnaris acts in the same fashion.
