A safe percutaneous procedure for trigger finger release.


A safe and easily performed method for percutaneous release of trigger digits is described which is performed in the outpatient clinic within a few minutes, without requiring any special instrument. Results in terms of abolishing triggering immediately and patient acceptance are excellent. No important complications have been observed in our first 38 procedures.
