Tendons repaired by double loop locking sutures show sufficient strength to allow early active mobilization under protective splint. Clinical experience with 51 tendons repaired by this technique resulted in satisfactory functional recovery. Eleven flexors in zone II showed excellent results in 10 and good results in 1 by the Strickland formula. Early active mobilization of repaired tendons with double loop locking sutures seems to enhance their healing by the intrinsic mechanism and reduce… CONTINUE READING
