Corticosteroid injection is an effective treatment for trigger digits but the pain during the injection is an ever-present side effect. Since the palmar skin has a high density of sensitive receptors, injecting through dorsal skin could be less painful. Our aim was to assess whether a dorsal technique through the dorsal web is safe for extra-sheath injection of trigger fingers and thumb.

Stenosing tenosynovitis (trigger finger) affects approximately 2% of the population. Given the prevalence of trigger finger and rising health care costs, adherence to the cost-effective and evidence-b...
Despite being a common pediatric hand condition, there are few clear guidelines regarding the optimal management of pediatric trigger thumb. Our primary aim was to help guide surgical management of th...
A1 pulley stretching is recognized as a clinically beneficial treatment for trigger finger. It is thought to lead to an increase in the cross-sectional area of the A1 pulley luminal region, thus impro...
The recommended chest compression technique for a single rescuer performing infant cardiopulmonary resuscitation is the two-finger technique. For 2 rescuers, a two-thumb-encircling hands technique is ...
This study aimed to clarify the association between IL-6 secretion in fibroblasts in carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) patients and their biophysical parameters including association with trigger finger an...
Hypothesis: Treatment of trigger finger by corticosteroid injection and splinting is superior to corticosteroid treatment alone.
Trigger finger, also known as trigger digit or stenosing tenovaginitis, is caused by a size mismatch between the flexor tendon and the A1 pulley, which is generally characterized by pain, ...
Trigger finger (stenosing tenosynovitis) is a very common condition and in office treatment with corticosteroid injection is widely accepted to be first line treatment. Previous studies ha...
Trigger finger is a common disorder of the hand which causes pain at the A1 pulley, inflammation, stiffness and/or snapping during movement. This observational study compared all of the po...
Steroid injection is the first line treatment for trigger finger. Steroid injection is sometimes mixed with a local anesthetic.
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).
Disease involving the ULNAR NERVE from its origin in the BRACHIAL PLEXUS to its termination in the hand. Clinical manifestations may include PARESIS or PARALYSIS of wrist flexion, finger flexion, thumb adduction, finger abduction, and finger adduction. Sensation over the medial palm, fifth finger, and ulnar aspect of the ring finger may also be impaired. Common sites of injury include the AXILLA, cubital tunnel at the ELBOW, and Guyon's canal at the wrist. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51 pp43-5)
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.
Muscular pain in numerous body regions that can be reproduced by pressure on trigger points, localized hardenings in skeletal muscle tissue. Pain is referred to a location distant from the trigger points. A prime example is the TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME.
Disease involving the RADIAL NERVE. Clinical features include weakness of elbow extension, elbow flexion, supination of the forearm, wrist and finger extension, and thumb abduction. Sensation may be impaired over regions of the dorsal forearm. Common sites of compression or traumatic injury include the AXILLA and radial groove of the HUMERUS.
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
