Histological Appearances in Post-Partum de Quervain’s Disease

Six patients who developed de Quervain’s disease during pregnancy or within 12 months of childbirth were treated surgically. Histopathological examination of the tendon sheaths using alcian blue

De Quervain’s Disease

The basic anatomy of the first extensor compartment is presented with a review of the pathology of de Quervain’s stenosing tenovaginitis and recommendations about the management of this condition are presented.

De Quervain's tenosynovitis

The clinical assessment of patients with suspected de Quervain’s tenosynovitis and its conservative and surgical treatment options are discussed.

De Quervain’s tenosynovitis in a child

A 9 years old female child who presented with pain and swelling at lateral end of right wrist and was diagnosed to have De Quervain’s tenosynovitis which is very rare in children is reported.

Dispelling the Myth of Work-Related de Quervain's Tenosynovitis.

De Quervain's Tenosynovitis (DQT) is a common condition characterized by pain about the dorsal-radial aspect of the wrist, just proximal to the radial styloid. The condition is precipitated by a

Inflammation Is Present in De Quervain Disease—Correlation Study Between Biochemical and Histopathological Evaluation

This study provides direct evidence for inflammatory cell and infiltration factors and offer valuable clues for specific pharmacological therapies for de Quervain disease.

De Quervain’s disease (etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment). Part I

This lecture presents a description of the clinical picture of de Quervain’s disease, tests and instrumental methods of diagnosis, the algorithm of examination of the patient with this pathology, and the etiology and pathogenesis of the disease.

Correlation Between IL-20 and De Quervain's Disease Severity

Interleukin-20 expression's involvement in the molecular mechanism of the severity of de Quervain's should be further investigated and a new predictor of tendinopathy progression is identified based on this study.

In patients who develop de Quervain9s disease variations from the standard pattern of tendons at the wrist are the rule rather than the exception and adequate exposure is advisable, but branches of the radial nerve must be treated with respect.

Clinicopathological analysis of de Quervain's disease.

Results indicate that the Iwahara-Nozue test can be used to accurately predict relatively greater thickening of the retinaculum on the extensor pollicis brevis side.

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.

Conservative Treatment of de Quervain's Disease

Thirty patients with de Quervain's disease were treated by injection of hydrocortisone acetate and lignocaine. A 93% incidence of complete relief of symptoms was obtained after 18 months. It is
