Double guide type tendon sheath incision instrument

Minimally invasive surgical procedure for trigger finger / Performed with the use of a novel double-guided tendon sheath release

(R) Tendon sheath and Tendon

●Make an incision following above steps of ① to ⑤

①Ultrasonography inspection and marking
→Ultrasonography is useful to confirm any motion disorders of the tendon and thickened A1 pulley in real time

②Puncture the tendon sheath by a dissector
→The tip of the dissector is inserted under ultrasonographic guidance.

③Insert the sheath guide
→Use ultrasonography to confirm that the tip of the dissector is located between the tendon and the tendon sheath.

④The needle connection with the needle holder
→The needle can be held tightly and be more easily controlled by maneuvering it into the groove of the needle holder.

●Comparison with the conventional method

Procedure: Skin incision size Postsurgical dressing
Open surgery: 15-20mm up to 10 days
This procedure: 2mm (two portal) up to 3 days (no suture)

The new procedure has a number of advantages over current approaches to trigger finger problems.
1. The dressing on the wound was needed for only 3 days after surgery.
2. The patients experienced early recoveries in terms of being able to move easily through their activities of daily living.
3. There was only a minimal operative scar on the palm.
4. The cost of the surgery was low.
5. Disposable injection needles always provide sharp cuts.

Note: It must be mentioned that this procedure is NOT indicated for a snapping thumb.
This is because a digital nerve passes across the flexor tendon of the thumb.
