The location of lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) in relation to the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) and the iliac crest was investigated in 96 embalmed cadaveric specimens. Fifty-six nerves (58.3%) passed medial to the ASIS. Twenty-two nerves (22.9%) passed at the ASIS. Eighteen nerves (18.8%) passed lateral to the ASIS. The LFCN is usually… (More)
A patient with a flexor carpi radialis brevis (FCRB) is reported. In contrast to all but one previous case, the anomalous FCRB was painful. The FCRB tendon was located in a separate compartment; the tenosynovitis in that compartment was the likely cause of pain. Release of the compartment relieved the symptoms.
Flexor tendon injury is a potential complication after volar plating of distal radius fracture. This article reports a case of flexor pollicis longus tendon rupture after corrective osteotomy of a distal radius malunion with volar fixed-angle plating. Thirty-three cases of flexor tendon injuries after fixed-angle volar plating and eleven cases of flexor… (More)
Triggering of extensor pollicis longus (EPL) tendon is an uncommon phenomenon with a few reports in the previous literature. Because of its rarity, the recommendations for management are sparse. We report a case of triggering EPL tendon secondary to the tendon nodule in a 42-year-old woman treated with the surgical decompression. The intraoperative… (More)
A variety of surgical treatment methods for an avulsion of the flexor digitorum profundus (FDP) from its insertion and simultaneous fracture of the volar base of the distal phalanx, the so-called type IV FDP avulsion had been reported. The need to simultaneously reattach the FDP tendon and fixate the avulsed bony fragment makes the treatment of this injury… (More)
