Summary of "Two-Stage Flexor Tendon Reconstruction in Zone II Using Paediatric Silicon Catheter at Mayo Hospital Lahore: A Case Series."

The aim of the study was to assess the functional outcomes after two stage flexor tendon reconstruction in zone II tendon injury of the hand using paediatric silicon catheter. A prospective case series of total 22 digits of 21 patients having Boyes grades I, II and III neglected flexor tendon injury, for a mean time of 10 months since injury were included. Two stage reconstructive procedure was performed. A final follow-up was done at one year to assess the functional outcome using Buck-Gramcko scale. Out of 22 digits, there were 06 (27.27%) Boyes grades I digits, 11 (50%) grades II and 5 (22.72%) grades III. At final follow-up thirteen (59.09%) digits had excellent, five (22.72%) had good while three (13.63%) had satisfactory result and one (4.54%) had poor result. We concluded that two stage flexor tendon reconstruction using silicon catheter yields good results and is cost effective.
