&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…

Common Hand Conditions: A Review.
TLDR
Treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, de Quervain tenosynovitis, and thumb carpometacarpal joint arthritis can be associated with significant disability and surgical treatment is safe and effective.
Management of de Quervain Tenosynovitis: A Critical Analysis Review.
TLDR
Surgical release of the first dorsal compartment (FDC) can provide excellent symptom relief when nonoperative treatment is unsuccessful, and FDC release can safely and effectively be performed using the WALANT technique, which has the potential for cost savings without compromising quality or patient comfort.
Is superficial radial nerve affected in patients with hand osteoarthritis?
TUBERCULOUS TENOSYNOVITIS OF FLEXOR TENDON PRESENTING AS MASS ON THE PALMAR ASPECT OF RIGHT RING FINGER: A RARE CASE REPORT
TLDR
The patient was a 38 year old female of tuberculous tenosynovitis presenting as a mass on the palmar aspect of the right hand & ring without any other pulmonary or extrapulmonary tubercular manifestation.
Tuberculous Extensor Tenosynovitis Presenting as Huge Mass on the Dorsum of the Hand
TLDR
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.
Platelet-rich plasma versus corticosteroid injection for treatment of trigger finger: study protocol for a prospective randomized triple-blind placebo-controlled trial
TLDR
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.
Extensor Tenosynovitis due to Mycobacterium marseillense Infection in a Renal Transplant Recipient
TLDR
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.

TLDR
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.
De quervain tenosynovitis of the wrist.
TLDR
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.
Corticosteroid injection therapy for trigger finger or thumb: a retrospective review of 577 digits
TLDR
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.
Forearm pain, diagnosed as intersection syndrome, managed by taping: a case series.
TLDR
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.
Stenosing tenovaginitis of extensor carpi ulnaris: brief report.
TLDR
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.
Stenosing tendovaginitis at the radial styloid process
TLDR
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.
The extensor pollicis brevis entrapment test in the treatment of de Quervain's disease.
TLDR
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.
