Trigger finger

Trigger finger or tendovaginitis stenosans is a chronic inflammation of the sheath of the flexor tendon of the fingers, which becomes thickened and difficult to pass through the ring. As a result, when you extend your finger, you hear a “triggering” sound, which is how the disease got its name.

The symptoms of the disease are different, and most often it is pain, limitation of normal movements of the affected finger with a decrease in function, skipping (clicking, snapping) of the finger when trying to extend it.

Minor or severe soreness is expressed during finger movements, especially when jumping. It occurs more often in women than in men, and the congenital form most often occurs on babies’ thumbs.

Preoperative preparation

Attention should be drawn if you have coagulopathy, thyroid disease, high blood pressure, kidney or heart disease, and if you are taking anticoagulants (Aspirin, Andol, Plavix, Sintrom).

Surgery

  • Anesthesia: The operation is performed under local anesthesia.
  • Duration: The duration of the operation is about 30 minutes.

Postoperative course

After the operation, you go home immediately. Wear a bandage on your wrist. The relief is felt immediately after the operation. Sutures are removed on the tenth postoperative day. You will return to regular activities in two weeks. Our friendly staff will explain all the important steps to you.

Complications

Complications are rare. After trigger finger surgery, recovery depends on the damage to the tendon and the amount of adhesions created. As a rule, we encounter this in long-term and primarily poorly treated patients. In the case of others, recovery is very fast and lasts a total of ten days.
