&NA; ≫ Trigger Finger Trigger finger is common in patients with diabetes. Corticosteroid injections are effective in about 60% to 92% of cases. Proximal interphalangeal joint contracture may occur in long‐standing cases. The outcomes of open and percutaneous releases are similar; however, surgeons are split on preferences. ≫ Intersection Syndrome The classic finding is crepitus with wrist motion at the distal one‐third of the radial aspect of the forearm. ≫ Extensor Pollicis Longus (EPL… Expand
Is superficial radial nerve affected in patients with hand osteoarthritis?
Sensory symptoms in patients with HOA might be due to the involvement of the superficial branch of the radial nerve, and high Kellgren-Lawrence scores, presence of synovitis in the1st CMC joint, and increased cross-sectional area of the 1st extensor compartment of wrist were found to be independent risk factors for reduced superficial radial nerve conduction velocity.

One portal endoscopic release of the first extensor compartment in de Quervain's disease
One portal endoscopic assisted release of the extensor compartment is an effective and safe minimal invasive procedure with similar complication rates reported previously in open and endoscopic procedures in patients with de Quervain's disease who are unresponsive to non-operative treatments.

Tuberculous Extensor Tenosynovitis Presenting as Huge Mass on the Dorsum of the Hand
A case of tuberculous extensor TS in a 52-year-old diabetic male patient presenting as a huge mass on the dorsum of the hand, in the absence of other pulmonary or extrapulmonary manifestation of tuberculosis is presented. Expand
Platelet-rich plasma versus corticosteroid injection for treatment of trigger finger: study protocol for a prospective randomized triple-blind placebo-controlled trial
The aim of this single-center triple-blind randomized controlled trial is to study whether PRP is non-inferior to corticosteroid injection in treating trigger finger, and to assess the safety and efficacy of PRP in comparison to placebo. Expand
Extensor Tenosynovitis due to Mycobacterium marseillense Infection in a Renal Transplant Recipient
This case reports a 73-year-old male renal transplant recipient who presented with chronic extensor tenosynovitis of the right hand caused by M marseillense, a rare, atypical mycobacteria that has been reported to cause pulmonary and cutaneous infections. Expand
Efficacy of corticosteroid injection in rock climber's tenosynovitis.
The positive outcome after corticosteroid injection therapy and the absence of complications justifies this invasive approach in rock climbing athletes. Expand
Intratendinous ganglion in the extensor digitorum communis
A patient with intratendinous ganglion which developed in the extensor digitorum communis tendon is encountered, although its developmental mechanism is unclear, synovitis is considered the cause. Expand
Initial Presentation of Pain in Patients with Fibromyalgia.
BACKGROUND Fibromyalgia is characterized by diffuse musculoskeletal pain at the time of diagnosis, but many patients report their initial symptoms as being focal or local. OBJECTIVES To evaluate,Expand
Tenosynovitis Induced by an Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor: A Case Report and Literature Review
Prednisolone immediately relieved the symptoms, and the tumor was still shrinking on day 21 after eight cycles of pembrolizumab, suggesting that 0.5 mg/kg/day prednisone might be effective for tenosynovitis without ICI cessation. Expand
Ténosynovite de De Quervain : « descendre » le radius permet de diminuer la douleur. Analyse de 36 cas
Resume Introduction L’abductus pollicis longus (APL) et l’extensor pollicis brevis (EPB) generent une abduction du pouce et du poignet lorsqu’ils se contractent et provoquent une ascension (mouvementExpand


Trigger digits: principles, management, and complications.
In children trigger thumb resolves reliably with A-1 pulley release but other digits may require more extensive surgery, and in diabetic patients trigger finger often is less responsive to conservative measures. Expand

Stenosing tenosynovitis of the thumb and fingers is a very common problem seen by the primary‐care physician, the orthopaedic surgeon, and the hand surgeon and can be seen even in infancy. Expand
De quervain tenosynovitis of the wrist.
Nonsurgical management, consisting of corticosteroid injections and supportive thumb spica splinting, is usually successful and surgical release of the first dorsal compartment is done, taking care to protect the radial sensory nerve and identify all accessory compartments. Expand
Proliferative extensor tenosynovitis of the wrist in the absence of rheumatoid arthritis.
A review of this case series of patients with tenosynovitis but without rheumatoid arthritis demonstrates a distinct clinical condition of exuberant proliferative extensor tenoslynovitis blocking proximal tendon excursion, thereby causing pain and limited active wrist extension, as well as a less distinct histological condition with a constellation of findings generally resembling traumatic tenosnovitis.

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. Expand
Forearm pain, diagnosed as intersection syndrome, managed by taping: a case series.
Taping improved symptoms and function in this small case series of intersection syndrome, and one possible explanation for this improvement may be the alteration of soft tissue alignment. Expand
Stenosing tenovaginitis of extensor carpi ulnaris: brief report.
72 cases which demonstrate that the incidence of tenovaginitis of extensor carpi ulnaris is quite high are collected, and awareness of the possibility is clearly important. Expand
Stenosing tendovaginitis at the radial styloid process
The tendon sheath of the abductor longus and extensor brevis pollicis muscles, occupying the first compartment on the dorsum of the radius, is most frequently involved, but any of the tendon sheaths on the flexor or extensor surfaces of the wrist may be affected. Expand
Injection accuracy and clinical relief of de Quervain's tendinitis.
The incidence of accurate injection of steroids is required for relief of de Quervain's tendinitis, and the EPB compartment was often missed, possibly because it was separate or of small size and deep location. Expand
The extensor pollicis brevis entrapment test in the treatment of de Quervain's disease.
The EPB entrapment test was developed to evaluate the patient with de Quervain's disease and showed 81% sensitivity and 50% specificity in identifying wrists with a separate EPB compartment in the surgical group. Expand
