Trigger finger, or digital stenosing tenosynovitis, is a common hand problem. A widely accepted treatment is steroid injection into the flexor tendon sheath. This can cause rupture of the flexor tendo...
Finger flexor tendinopathies and carpal tunnel syndrome are histologically characterized by non-inflammatory fibrosis of the subsynovial connective tissue (SSCT) in the carpal tunnel, which is indicat...
Innovations in operative techniques, biomaterials, and rehabilitation protocols have improved outcomes after treatment of flexor tendon injuries. However, despite these advances, treatment of flexor t...
Flexor tendon adhesions in zone II are common. The origin of these adhesions is multifactorial. Flexor tenolysis consists of releasing the adhesions to restore the tendon's normal path and the patient...
Postoperative adhesions constitute a substantial clinical problem in hand surgery. Fexor tendon injury and repair result in adhesion formation around the tendon, which restricts the gliding function o...
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...
Hypothesis: Treatment of trigger finger by corticosteroid injection and splinting is superior to corticosteroid treatment alone.
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
