We introduced a technique with a volar transfer of the lateral band using the transverse retinacular ligament for swan-neck deformity caused by volar plate injury of the PIP joint. A 61-year-old woman injured her 5th finger and was diagnosed with a volar plate injury of the PIP joint. She presented with snapping of the finger together with the appearance of a swan-neck deformity, and surgery was performed. Dorsally located lateral bands were transferred towards the volar aspect of the finger, and their position was maintained using the transverse retinacular ligament. Improvements in the snapping and swan-neck deformities were confirmed by intraoperative active motion of the finger. One year postoperatively, the deformity had not recurred, and there was no contracture of the finger. Surgical transfer of the lateral band using the transverse retinacular ligament is effective for swan-neck deformity caused by volar plate injury of the PIP joint.
