Ultra-minimally Invasive Sonographically-guided Trigger Digit Release: An External Pilot Study

The intrasheath sonographically-guided first annular pulley release is safe and efficacious, and shows a trend toward clinical superiority versus the classic open procedure, which should be confirmed with a clinical trial.

Identification of the location of the A1 pulley combining palpation technique with palm landmarks and percutaneous release of A1 pulley with a 19-gauge needle: A cadaveric study

Percutaneous release of the A1 pulley with a 19-gauge needle shows acceptable results in both safety and efficacy and can be predicted with success.

Association between diabetes mellitus and risk of infection after trigger finger release: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Meta-analysis results demonstrated that diabetes mellitus increases the risk of infection after trigger finger release, and Glycemic control and percutaneous rather than open surgery might be strategies to the reduce risk of infected patients in diabetic patients.

Acquired triggering of the fingers and thumb in adults

The causes and clinical features of acquired triggering of the digit are explained, and the options and techniques for its management are described while discussing the evidence base behind them.

El dedo en resorte es una de las patologias mas frecuentes del miembro superior con una incidencia a lo largo de la vida del 2,2 por ciento. La cirugia abierta clasica y percutanea a ciegas han

Ultrasound-Guided A1 Pulley Release Versus Classic Open Surgery for Trigger Digit: A Randomized Clinical Trial.

The ultra-minimally invasive ultrasound-guided percutaneous A1 pulley release was clinically superior to the classic open surgery in functional recovery with a lower complication rate.



Percutaneous release of trigger digit with and without cortisone injection.

Percutaneous Release, Open Surgery, or Corticosteroid Injection, Which Is the Best Treatment Method for Trigger Digits?

Patients treated with percutaneous releases were less likely to have treatment failure than patients treated with corticosteroid injections and the frequencies of treatment failure and complications were no different between per cutaneous release surgery and open surgery for trigger digit in adults.

Open Versus Percutaneous Release of the A1-Pulley for Stenosing Tendovaginitis: A Prospective Randomized Trial

Because of lower costs and quicker procedure with equal functional outcome when compared with open surgery, the percutaneous technique using a #15 blade for trigger finger release is recommended.

Corticosteroid injection therapy for trigger finger or thumb: a retrospective review of 577 digits

Women were affected by trigger digits more often than men and at a younger age and surgical release provides a definitive therapeutic option if corticosteroid injection fails.

Prospective randomized trial of open versus percutaneous surgery for trigger digits.

It is concluded that percutaneous correction of trigger digits is a quicker procedure, is less painful, and shows significantly better results in rehabilitation than open surgery.

Corticosteroid injection in diabetic patients with trigger finger. A prospective, randomized, controlled double-blinded study.

Corticosteroid injections were significantly more effective in the digits of nondiabetic patients than in those of diabetic patients, and may be less effective in patients with systemic manifestations of diabetes mellitus.
