German term or phrase: Grundgliedköpfchenfraktur
V.a. Grundgliedköpfchenfraktur rechter Daumen

proximal phalanx head fracture?

Grundglied ist 'proximal phalanx' und man unterscheidet zwischen einer Basis-, Schaft- und Köpfchenfraktur, nur bin ich mir nicht sicher mit dem richtigen Begriff dafür.

Basis, Schaft, Köpfchen (base, body (diaphysis), head)?

Kann jemand helfen? Vielen Dank!

The proximal phalanx has a "head", so the complete term:

Maybe we can combine
"fracture proximal phalanx of the thumb (phalangeal head)"

HTH :-)
