Trigger finger tendon sheath incision
Trigger finger is a condition when one of the fingers get stuck in a bent position, and it can straighten with a snap. It occurs, if inflammation narrows the tendon sheath around the tendon that moves the affected finger, so the tendon cannot glide easily through. The goal of the surgery is to open the inflamed sheath so the tendon can glide freely. The incision of the sheath is performed as an ambulatory surgery, under local anesthesia.
De Quervain’s tenosynovitis incision
De Quervain’s tenosynovitis is a condition, which affects the tendons on the thumb side of the wrist. It is caused by the narrowing of the tunnels, where the tendons run, or the tendons take extra space in the tunnel. This can occur due to the thickening of the soft tissues of the tunnel, or an increase in the number of soft tissues within the tunnel. Hand and thumb motion becomes painful, especially with forceful grasping or twisting. The incision of the tunnel is performed as an ambulatory surgery, under local anesthesia.
Carpal tunnel syndrome, nerve release
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition, where a pinched nerve causes the complaints. There is a small space in the wrist called the carpal tunnel where the median nerve and nine tendons pass from the forearm into the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome happens when swelling in this tunnel puts pressure on the nerve, causing numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand. The nerve release with the incision of the tunnel is performed as an ambulatory surgery, under local anesthesia.
