This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the effects (benefits and harms) of surgical and conservative interventions for fingertip entrapment injuries in children.

We intend to compare:

  • Surgical versus conservative treatment;
  • Different methods of surgical treatment;
  • Different methods of post-surgical treatment.
