  1. A dorsopalmar view of an acute suspensory apparatus breakdown.
  2. Note the comminuted fracture of both proximal sesamoids with displacement of the proximal fragments.
  3. The proximal fragments have been displaced proximally by the suspensory branches and the distal fragments have been displaced distally by the distal sesamoidean ligaments.
