trans-DIP digital avulsion
Explanation:
I'm not sure whether this is a fracture or just an injury, but avulsion covers both. And digital could refer to the finger or toe.

"The interphalangeal joints of the hand are the hinge joints between the phalanges of the fingers that provide flexion towards the palm of the hand.

There are two sets (except in the thumb) which has one joint:

proximal interphalangeal joints (PIJ or PIP), those between the first (also called proximal) and second (intermediate) phalanges
distal interphalangeal joints (DIJ or DIP), those between the second (intermediate) and third (distal) phalanges."

"In medicine, an avulsion is an injury in which a body structure is forcibly detached from its normal point of insertion by either trauma or surgery."
