BACKGROUND Different mobilization protocols have been proposed for rehabilitation after hand flexor tendon repair to provide tendon excursion sufficient to prevent adhesions. Several cadaver studies have shown that the position of the neighboring fingers influences tendon excursions of the injured finger. We hypothesized that the positions of adjacent(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to assess the test-retest reliability of tendon excursion measurements with color Doppler imaging in patients with flexor tendon injuries following a modified Kleinert protocol. METHODS One observer performed repeated measurements at 3 different time periods in 13 patients with flexor tendon injuries, following a(More)
The excursion of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon during active flexion of the third finger was measured with colour Doppler imaging in 10 healthy volunteers. Repeated measurements were made by one observer in three sessions to assess the test-retest reliability. An analysis of variance (ANOVA) was done to find out the multiple sources of measurement(More)
