Sagittal Band Injury and Extensor Tendon Realignment.

Orthop Clin North Am 2022 Jul 27;53(3):319-325. Epub 2022 May 27.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Biomedical Engineering, University of Tennessee Health Science Center - Campbell Clinic, 1211 Union Avenue, Suite 510, Memphis, TN 38104, USA.

The sagittal bands are structurally important, aiding in the central alignment of the extensor tendons over the heads of each metacarpal. They resist the deviation of the tendon with flexion of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint. Injury to the sagittal band can cause the extensor tendon to lose its alignment leading to pain, tendon subluxation, or dislocation. Read More

Primary repair of extensor pollicis longus rupture after volar locking plating for distal radial fracture.

Hand Surg Rehabil 2022 May 13. Epub 2022 May 13.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Regional Rheumatoid and Degenerative Arthritis Center, Chungnam National University Hospital, Chungnam National University School of Medicine, 266 Munwha-ro, Jung-Gu, Daejeon, South Korea.

We presumed that primary repair would be possible if the extensor pollicis longus (EPL) rupture after volar locking plating (VLP) for distal radius fracture (DRF) was diagnosed earlier. Thus, five cases of EPL ruptures were resolved via primary repair rather than extensor indicis proprius (EIP) transfer, so we reported the clinical outcomes of at least 2 years follow-up since EPL repair. Of 588 consecutive patients with the fractures treated between January 2016 and December 2019, 501 who met out inclusion/exclusion criteria were initially investigated. Read More

Single Incision Modified Tension Slide Technique in Distal Biceps Repair: Improved Load to Failure While Reducing Surgical Pitfalls.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2021 Dec 20. Epub 2021 Dec 20.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Northwell/Northshore University Hospital-Long Island Jewish Medical Center, Manhasset Orthopaedic Associates of Manhasset, Great Neck, NY Heritage Valley Health System, Hand and Upper Extremity Center, Wexford, PA Resurgens Orthopaedics, Marietta, GA.

Historically, distal biceps tendon repair through the tension slide technique (TST) using a cortical button has yielded the strongest published repair measured by observed gap formation in both cyclic and maximal load to failure. The modified tension slide technique (MTST) was developed in order to provide the surgeon with a technically simpler and biomechanically more effective way to reduce gap formation and consistently seat/bottom-out the tendon within the bone tunnel through a more direct line of pull. In order to compare the biomechanics of the MTST to the TST, we used 24 matched bovine extensor tendons, and conducted maximal load to failure and cyclical load to failure testing using an Instron 5566 machine.
