We report the outcomes of repair of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon in zone 2a in 22 fingers. The tendon was repaired with a six-strand repair method and the A4 pulley was completely released. R...
Background:Trigger finger in children is a rare condition with relevant differences to the more frequent trigger thumb in children and the very frequent trigger finger in adults. Patients and methods:...
In the reconstruction of hand flexor tendon injuries it is fundamental to select the best suture technique, which makes possible early, active postoperative mobilization and achievement of the best re...
Therapy after flexor pollicis longus (FPL) repair typically mimics finger flexor management, but this ignores anatomic and biomechanical features unique to the FPL.
Successful outcome after flexor tendon repair requires a delicate balance between tendon healing and limiting scar tissue formation. Recent studies have highlighted the importance of the number of cor...
The purpose of this study is to dissolve flexor tendon adhesions associated with failed tendon repair surgery.
The objectives of the study are to assess efficacy, safety, and handling of PXL01 in patients with flexor tendon injury in zone I or II.
To prospectively assess the healing process following suture of profound fexor tendon due to traumatic rupture of FDP-Tendon in Zone II by ultrasound.
Trigger finger, also known as stenosing tenosynovitis, is a painful condition that can cause discomfort and disability. Many physicians choose to locally inject cortisone into the infecte...
We are investigating the use of the flexor carpi radialis and abductor pollicis longus tendons in the use of trapeziectomy and ligament reconstruction with tendon interposition. Previous s...
Narrowing or stenosis of a tendon's retinacular sheath. It occurs most often in the hand or wrist but can also be found in the foot or ankle. The most common types are DE QUERVAIN DISEASE and TRIGGER FINGER DISORDER.
A painful disability in the hand affecting the finger or thumb. It is caused by mechanical impingement of the digital flexor tendons as they pass through a narrowed retinacular pulley at the level of the metacarpal head. Thickening of the sheath and fibrocartilaginous metaplasia can occur, and nodules can form. (From Green's Operative Hand Surgery, 5th ed, p2137-58).
A pea-shaped carpal bone that actually sits in the tendon of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle.
Inflammation of the synovial lining of a tendon sheath. Causes include trauma, tendon stress, bacterial disease (gonorrhea, tuberculosis), rheumatic disease, and gout. Common sites are the hand, wrist, shoulder capsule, hip capsule, hamstring muscles, and Achilles tendon. The tendon sheaths become inflamed and painful, and accumulate fluid. Joint mobility is usually reduced.
Compression of the ULNAR NERVE in the cubital tunnel, which is formed by the two heads of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle, humeral-ulnar aponeurosis, and medial ligaments of the elbow. This condition may follow trauma or occur in association with processes which produce nerve enlargement or narrowing of the canal. Manifestations include elbow pain and PARESTHESIA radiating distally, weakness of ulnar innervated intrinsic hand muscles, and loss of sensation over the hypothenar region, fifth finger, and ulnar aspect of the ring finger.

Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
