Pain on the ulnar side of the wrist is common among elite tennis players. Ten years of experience has allowed identification of a pathology involving the extensor carpi ulnaris (ECU) tendon. On the basis of 28 clinical cases seen over the last five years, three clinical patterns are described: (a) acute instability of the ECU; (b) tendinopathy; (c) ECU(More)
PURPOSE To report the magnetic resonance (MR) imaging features of finger hemangiomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen patients clinically suspected of having hemangioma of the finger underwent 1.5-T MR imaging with a customized local gradient coil. The location, size, margins, signal intensity, and enhancement patterns of the lesions were noted. In(More)
Congenital coalition of pisiform and hamate is rare and had been considered asymptomatic in the first reports. The authors report a case of bilateral pisiform-hamate coalition in a young patient, causing symptoms of median nerve compression in the carpal tunnel and attritional changes on digital flexor tendons. This type of coalition had not previously been(More)
Seven patients who presented with a rupture of the digital pulley were investigated by computed tomography. The rupture involved the A2 and A4 pulleys in four cases, the A2 pulley in two cases and, in the final case, the A4 pulley alone. A sagittal-plane CT scan gave a precise analysis of the rupture in all cases. Two cases were surgically repaired and CT(More)
PURPOSE To determine the magnetic resonance (MR) imaging findings in recurrent glomus tumors of the fingertips. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-four consecutive patients with recurrent pain after previous excision of a glomus tumor of the fingertip underwent MR imaging studies and surgery. T1-weighted spin-echo MR images were obtained in each patient before(More)
Twenty-eight extensor carpi ulnaris lesions at the wrist were treated surgically between 1990 and 2002. Fifteen patients had an isolated extensor carpi ulnaris tenosynovitis or tendinopathy, five had extensor carpi ulnaris dislocation, four had an extensor carpi ulnaris subluxation and four had an extensor carpi ulnaris rupture. Seventeen patients first(More)
Intraneural mucoid cysts are uncommon. They usually affect middle-aged men, presenting with pain and symptoms of nerve compression. We report on our series of six patients, three of whom had cysts involving the digital nerves. We compare our series with others and discuss controversies concerning the existence, aetiology, treatment and outcome of these(More)
The author presents his experience with an established technique of flexor tendon lengthening by tenotomy at the musculotendinous junction. This technique can be used for digital stiffness of forearm origin when active extension is possible on flexion of the wrist. There must not be adherence in the carpal tunnel or in the digital sheath, and active flexion(More)
Closed flexor tendon pulley ruptures are relatively rare injuries. All previously reported cases have been in the long finger pulleys. To our knowledge, there has not been a case of closed thumb flexor tendon pulley rupture reported in the literature. This paper presents two cases of this pathology and discusses appropriate treatment of it.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to retrospectively determine the accuracy of MRI in identification of the morphologic features of median nerve dysfunction after surgical release of the median nerve for carpal tunnel syndrome. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two blinded readers independently evaluated axial 1.5-T MR images for retinacular regrowth,(More)
