Current Concepts in the Management of Advanced Trigger Finger: A Critical Analysis Review.

JBJS Rev 2021 09 9;9(9). Epub 2021 Sep 9.

Department of Hand Surgery, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York, NY.

»: While the majority of patients with trigger finger obtain excellent outcomes from nonoperative treatment or release of the A1 pulley, a subset of patients with advanced trigger finger, defined as trigger finger with loss of active or passive range of motion, may have incomplete symptom relief and warrant specific attention.

»: Advanced trigger finger is more refractory to complete symptom resolution from corticosteroid injection, and particular attention should be paid to incomplete improvement of flexion contractures.

»: Unlike simple trigger finger, the pathology in advanced trigger finger involves not only the A1 pulley but also the flexor tendon, including thickening and degeneration. Read More

Thumb Carpometacarpal Instability.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2021 Nov;29(22):943-950

From the Attending Hand Surgeon, New York Hand & Wrist Center of Lenox Hill, New York, NY (Rabinovich, Beldner, and Polatsch), and the Attending Hand Surgeon, Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute, Los Angeles, CA (Shin).

The basal joint complex of the thumb provides the framework necessary for function of the human hand. Although its unique saddle articulation allows for a wide range of motion necessary for routine function of the hand, it is rendered inherently unstable because of poor bony congruency and reliance on its capsuloligamentous support. Painful instability of this joint can stem from several causes including traumatic dislocation, various hypermobility conditions, and chronic overuse and microtrauma. Read More

Percutaneous Intramedullary Reduction Technique for Impacted Middle Phalanx Base Fractures.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2021 Mar 24;26(1):2-6. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

Department of Hand Surgery, Helsinki University Hospital and University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland.

Proximal interphalangeal joint injuries are common and are a major risk for functional deficits of the finger that affect range of motion and grip strength. Impacted intra-articular fractures and fracture dislocations of the middle phalanx base are challenging to treat because of troublesome joint reduction and difficulties in achieving articular congruity. Although treatment algorithms have been published, the anatomically delicate proximal interphalangeal joint often remains incomplete in function and may result in post-traumatic pain, stiffness, and osteoarthritis.
