J Wrist Surg 2021 Feb 16;10(1):48-52. Epub 2020 Oct 16.

Division of Hand and Wrist Surgery, Rothman Orthopaedic Institute, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

 The routine use of plain radiography represents a significant expenditure and has been proven unnecessary in several orthopedic conditions. The utility of plain radiographs in the diagnosis of De Quervain's tenosynovitis (DeQ) is not clear.  This study evaluates whether plain radiographic findings routinely predict the need for surgery or alter treatment courses in the initial diagnosis of DeQ.

Ultrasound Imaging and Guidance in Common Wrist/Hand Pathologies.

Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2021 06;100(6):599-609

From the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and General University Hospital, Prague, Czech Republic (KM, YA); Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine Unit, "Luigi Sacco" University Hospital, A.S.S.T. Fatebenefratelli-Sacco, Milan, Italy (VR); Department of Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine, Second Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and University Hospital Motol, Prague, Czech Republic (JJ, KS); Institute of Anatomy, First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic (ON); and Department of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, Hacettepe University Medical School, Ankara, Turkey (LÖ).

Abstract: Wrist/hand pain is a prevalent musculoskeletal condition with a great spectrum of etiologies (varying from overuse injuries to soft tissue tumors). Although most of the anatomical structures are quite superficial and easily evaluated during physical examination, for several reasons, the use of ultrasound imaging and guidance has gained an intriguing and paramount concern in the prompt management of relevant patients. In this aspect, the present review aims to illustrate detailed cadaveric wrist/hand anatomy to shed light into better understanding the corresponding ultrasonographic examinations/interventions in carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, de Quervain tenosynovitis, rhizarthrosis, and the radiocarpal joint arthritis.

Hand and Finger Injuries: Chronic Hand and Wrist Pathologies.

FP Essent 2021 Jan;500:33-41

West Virginia University Department of Human Performance, 1 Medical Center Dr, Morgantown, WV 26506.

Common chronic hand pathologies seen by family physicians include carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, and de Quervain tenosynovitis. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common compressive neuropathy of the upper extremity and is caused by compression of the median nerve at the wrist. Trigger finger, also known as stenosing tenosynovitis, is caused by a metaplasia of the A1 flexor tendon pulley and the flexor tendon causing increased friction and decreased space for tendon gliding in the flexor tendon sheath.

J Clin Ultrasound 2021 May 6;49(4):398-400. Epub 2020 Oct 6.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Osaka City University Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka, Japan.

Triggering due to de Quervain's disease is exceedingly rare. This is the first successfully diagnosed case of the snapping phenomenon of the extensor pollicis brevis (EPB) tendon in de Quervain's disease evaluated with preoperative dynamic ultrasonography, clearly demonstrated in an intraoperative video, and treated with decompression of EPB subcompartment only under a wide-awake surgery. Dynamic ultrasonographic images identified snapping caused by unsmooth excursion of an enlarged EPB tendon in a separate subcompartment. Read More

Conservative Management of de Quervain Stenosing Tenosynovitis: Review and Presentation of Treatment Algorithm.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2020 07;146(1):105-126

From the Faculty of Medicine, McGill University; and the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, McGill University Health Center.

Background: Nonsurgical management of de Quervain disease relies mainly on the use of oral nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug administration, splint therapy, and corticosteroid injections. Although the latter is most effective, with documented success rates of 61 to 83 percent, there exists no clear consensus pertaining to conservative treatment protocols conferring the best outcomes. This article reports on all present conservative treatment modalities in use for the management of de Quervain disease and highlights specific treatment- and patient-related factors associated with the best outcomes.
