Incidence and causes of tenosynovitis of the wrist extensors in long distance paddle canoeists. (1/136)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the incidence and causes of acute tenosynovitis of the forearm of long distance canoeists. METHOD: A systematic sample of canoeists competing in four canoe marathons were interviewed. The interview included questions about the presence and severity of pain in the forearm and average training distances. Features of the paddles and canoes were determined. RESULTS: An average of 23% of the competitors in each race developed this condition. The incidence was significantly higher in the dominant than the nondominant hand but was unrelated to the type of canoe and the angle of the paddle blades. Canoeists who covered more than 100 km a week for eight weeks preceding the race had a significantly lower incidence of tenosynovitis than those who trained less. Environmental conditions during racing, including fast flowing water, high winds, and choppy waters, and the paddling techniques, especially hyperextension of the wrist during the pushing phase of the stroke, were both related to the incidence of tenosynovitis. CONCLUSION: Tenosynovitis is a common injury in long distance canoeists. The study suggests that development of tenosynovitis is not related to the equipment used, but is probably caused by difficult paddling conditions, in particular uneven surface conditions, which may cause an altered paddling style. However, a number of factors can affect canoeing style. Level of fitness and the ability to balance even a less stable canoe, thereby maintaining optimum paddling style without repeated eccentric loading of the forearm tendons to limit hyperextension of the wrist, would seem to be important.  (+info)

Remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting oedema (RS3PE) syndrome: a prospective follow up and magnetic resonance imaging study. (2/136)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the clinical characteristics of patients with "pure" remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting oedema (RS3PE) syndrome, and to investigate its relation with polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR). Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to describe the anatomical structures affected by inflammation in pure RS3PE syndrome. METHODS: A prospective follow up study of 23 consecutive patients with pure RS3PE syndrome and 177 consecutive patients with PMR diagnosed over a five year period in two Italian secondary referral centres of rheumatology. Hands or feet MRI, or both, was performed at diagnosis in 7 of 23 patients. RESULTS: At inspection evidence of hand and/or foot tenosynovitis was present in all the 23 patients with pure RS3PE syndrome. Twenty one (12%) patients with PMR associated distal extremity swelling with pitting oedema. No significant differences in the sex, age at onset of disease, acute phase reactant values at diagnosis, frequency of peripheral synovitis and carpal tunnel syndrome and frequency of HLA-B7 antigen were present between patients with pure RS3PE and PMR. In both conditions no patient under 50 was observed, the disease frequency increased significantly with age and the highest frequency was present in the age group 70-79 years. Clinical symptoms for both conditions responded promptly to corticosteroids and no patient developed rheumatoid arthritis during the follow up. However, the patients with pure RS3PE syndrome were characterised by shorter duration of treatment, lower cumulative corticosteroid dose and lower frequency of systemic signs/symptoms and relapse/recurrence. Hands and feet MRI showed evidence of tenosynovitis in five patients and joint synovitis in three patients. CONCLUSION: The similarities of demographic, clinical, and MRI findings between RS3PE syndrome and PMR and the concurrence of the two syndromes suggest that these conditions may be part of the same disease and that the diagnostic labels of PMR and RS3PE syndrome may not indicate a real difference. The presence of distal oedema seems to indicate a better prognosis.  (+info)

Musculoskeletal manifestations in a population-based cohort of patients with giant cell arteritis. (3/136)

OBJECTIVE: To define musculoskeletal manifestations occurring in a population-based cohort of patients with giant cell (temporal) arteritis (GCA). METHODS: The records of 128 patients with GCA diagnosed over a 42-year-period (1950-1991) in Olmsted County, MN, were reviewed for the presence and type of musculoskeletal manifestations, their relationship to the onset and course of GCA, and their response to treatment. RESULTS: Fifty-three patients (41%) developed polymyalgia rheumatica: 23 before, 17 concurrently with, and 13 after the diagnosis of GCA. Thirty patients (23%) developed 1 or more peripheral musculoskeletal manifestations. These included peripheral synovitis in 23 patients (6 of whom fulfilled criteria for rheumatoid arthritis), distal extremity swelling with pitting edema in 13, distal swelling without pitting in 5, tenosynovitis in 6, and carpal tunnel syndrome in 2. Fifty-seven episodes of peripheral manifestations occurred in the 30 patients at different times during the course of GCA. In most, the onset of PMR and peripheral manifestations was within 2 years of the diagnosis of GCA. CONCLUSION: Musculoskeletal symptoms in GCA are common and varied. Most appear linked temporally to the underlying GCA, indicating that the nature of this illness and its clinical expression are broader than often considered.  (+info)

Comparison of sonography and magnetic resonance imaging for the diagnosis of partial tears of finger extensor tendons in rheumatoid arthritis. (4/136)

OBJECTIVE: Finger extensor tenosynovitis in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) may lead to partial and eventually to complete tendon tears. The aim of this study was to investigate the diagnostic value of sonography (SG) and/or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to visualize partial tendon tears. METHODS: Twenty-one RA patients with finger extensor tenosynovitis for more than 12 months underwent SG, MRI and surgical inspection, the latter being the gold standard. RESULTS: For partial tears, sensitivity and specificity were 0.27 and 0.83 for MRI, and 0.33 and 0.89 for SG, respectively. Positive and negative predictive values were 0.35 and 0.78 for MRI, and 0.50 and 0.80 for SG, respectively. Accuracy was 0.69 for MRI and 0.75 for SG. CONCLUSION: For visualization of partial finger extensor tendon tears in RA patients, SG performs slightly better than MRI, but both techniques are at present not sensitive enough to be used in daily practice.  (+info)

Mycobacterium terrae: case reports, literature review, and in vitro antibiotic susceptibility testing. (5/136)

Mycobacterium terrae infection can cause debilitating disease that is relatively resistant to antibiotic therapy. Two cases are presented, and data from an additional 52 reports from the literature are reviewed. Tenosynovitis of the upper extremity, often following trauma, was the most commonly reported presentation (59% of cases), with pulmonary disease occurring in an additional 26% of cases. Underlying medical problems were absent (44%) or not reported (28%) in 72% of the cases. One-half of the patients with upper extremity tenosynovitis were treated with local or systemic corticosteroids, before microbiological identification. Only one-half of the patients with tenosynovitis who were followed up for 6 months had clinical improvement or were cured. The other one-half of the patients required repeated debridement, tendon extirpation, or amputation. The best antimicrobial therapy for M. terrae infection is unknown but might include a macrolide antibiotic plus ethambutol and one other effective drug for at least 12 months after clinical response. Parenteral treatment with an aminoglycoside and surgery may be useful in selected cases.  (+info)

A retinacular sling for subluxing tendons of the first extensor compartment. A case report. (6/136)

Over-zealous release of the first dorsal compartment of the wrist for de Quervain's disease or other lesions such as ganglia, may result in volar subluxation of the tendons of abductor pollicis longus and extensor pollicis brevis. This is usually asymptomatic, but may occasionally become disabling. We describe an operation using part of the extensor retinaculum to stabilise such a subluxation.  (+info)

Magnetic resonance imaging, radiography, and scintigraphy of the finger joints: one year follow up of patients with early arthritis. The TIRA Group. (7/136)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate synovial membrane hypertrophy, tenosynovitis, and erosion development of the 2nd to 5th metacarpophalangeal (MCP) and proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joints by magnetic resonance imaging in a group of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or suspected RA followed up for one year. Additionally, to compare the results with radiography, bone scintigraphy, and clinical findings. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifty five patients were examined at baseline, of whom 34 were followed up for one year. Twenty one patients already fulfilled the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria for RA at baseline, five fulfilled the criteria only after one year's follow up, whereas eight maintained the original diagnosis of early unclassified polyarthritis. The following MRI variables were assessed at baseline and one year: synovial membrane hypertrophy score, number of erosions, and tenosynovitis score. RESULTS: MRI detected progression of erosions earlier and more often than did radiography of the same joints; at baseline the MRI to radiography ratio was 28:4. Erosions were exclusively found in patients with RA at baseline or fulfilling the ACR criteria at one year. At one year follow up, scores of MR synovial membrane hypertrophy, tenosynovitis, and scintigraphic tracer accumulation had not changed significantly from baseline; in contrast, swollen and tender joint counts had declined significantly (p<0.05). CONCLUSIONS: MRI detected more erosions than radiography. MR synovial membrane hypertrophy and scintigraphy scores did not parallel the changes seen over time in clinically assessed swollen and tender joint counts. Although joint disease activity may be assessed as quiescent by conventional clinical methods, a more detailed evaluation by MRI may show that a pathological condition is still present within the synovium.  (+info)

The outcome of treatment of trigger thumb in children. (8/136)

Our aim was to determine the outcome of the treatment of trigger thumb in children. There was a rate of spontaneous recovery of 49% in those children whose thumbs were observed before a final decision to operate was made. Spontaneous recovery occurred more commonly in children over 12 months old. All patients treated by operation had a satisfactory outcome with few complications. The overall rate of recurrence was 4.0% and it was more common in younger children. Our results suggest that a conservative approach to surgery for this condition could be adopted.  (+info)

Tenosynovitis is the inflammation of the fluid-filled sheath (called the synovium) that surrounds a tendon, typically leading to joint pain, swelling, and stiffness. Tenosynovitis can be either infectious or noninfectious. Common clinical manifestations of noninfectious tenosynovitis include de Quervain tendinopathy and stenosing tenosynovitis (more commonly known as trigger finger) The most common manifestation of infectious tenosynovitis is in the flexor tendons of the fingers, though infections of other tendon sheaths have been reported as well. The four cardinal signs of infectious flexor tenosynovitis are tenderness to touch along the flexor aspect of the finger, symmetric enlargement of the affected finger, the finger being held in slight flexion at rest, and severe pain with passive extension. Fever may also be present but is uncommon. Tenosynovitis most commonly results from the introduction of bacteria into a sheath through a puncture or laceration wound, though bacteria can also be ...
Flexor tenosynovitis is the infection of a digits flexor tendon sheath and is considered an orthopedic emergency. Clinical diagnosis of this condition is made using the four cardinal Kanavels signs: tenderness along the flexor tendon sheath, flexion of the finger, pain with passive extension, and fusiform swelling [1]. Studies have shown that the sensitivity of the Kanavel signs ranges from 91.4% to 97.1% and specificity ranges from 51.3% to 69.2% [2]. As diagnosis is primarily made through history and physical examination findings, a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can have negative consequences including but not limited to: worsened range of motion owing to adhesions, tendon necrosis and rupture, deformity, and loss of limb [1].. POCUS can be used as a helpful adjunct to history and physical examination findings as shown by two large studies [3, 7], one case series [4] and several case reports [1, 8, 9]. One large study examining 57 cases of early flexor tenosynovitis found that ultrasound ...
The foundation of the successful management of purulent flexor tenosynovitis is the surgical debridement followed by an intravenous antibiotic treatment. Several surgical methods have been described to remove the purulent debris from the flexor tendon sheath. Closed-catheter irrigation involves irrigation of the tendon sheath from proximal to distal direction facilitated by two small incisions; one proximal to A1 pulley and one distal to A4 pulley. Lille et al. (J Hand Surg Br. 2000;25(3):304-307) conducted a retrospective study that implied that intraoperative closed-catheter irrigation without postoperative irrigation might be as effective as the combination of intra- and postoperative irrigation.. The hypothesis of this prospective randomized trial is that the intraoperative closed-catheter irrigation alone is as effective as the combination of intraoperative and postoperative intermittent closed-catheter irrigation in the treatment of purulent flexor tenosynovitis. ...
To diagnose de Quervains tenosynovitis, Dr. Setty will examine your hand to see if you feel pain when pressure is applied on the thumb side of the wrist.. Dr. Setty will also perform a test called the Finkelstein test. In a Finkelstein test, you bend your thumb across the palm of your hand and bend your fingers down over your thumb. Then you bend your wrist toward your little finger. If this causes pain on the thumb side of your wrist, you likely have de Quervains tenosynovitis.. Imaging tests, such as X-rays, generally arent needed to diagnose de Quervains tenosynovitis.. ...
Several studies have shown that ultrasound is a reliable and sensitive method for detecting tenosynovitis.1-5 This study on de Quervains tenosynovitis clearly detected structural changes, even minimal tendon abnormalities, tendon inner structure, tendon thickening, effusion, and paratendinitis. The affected tendons were inflamed and thickened and showed a significantly increased thickness compared with normal subjects (fig 1A).. The affected tendon sheath was infiltrated with a combination of 15 mg triamcinolone diacetate and 2 ml of 2% lidocaine. After carefully identifying the area of the diseased tendon, the ultrasound guided 23gauge needle was inserted through the sterile skin at the radial styloid process and advanced anteriorly and slightly downwards in a direction parallel to the tendon. The insertion of the needle into the tendon sheath and delivery of the therapeutic agents were done under direct sonographic visualisation. An ultrasound examination was performed after clinical ...

Stenosing tenosynovitis, commonly known as a trigger finger, involves the tendons and pulleys of the flexor tendons of the fingers. The tendons function as long cords from the muscles in the forearm and through a tunnel, bone base and roof of fibrous tissue, until they reach the toes. Inside the tunnel the tendons are wrapped in a film that allows easy sliding inside the sheath and pulleys.. Trigger finger happens when the tendon develops a lump or edema of the surrounding film. When the tendon swells, it swells, and it has to brush against the entrance to the tunnel (flexor tendon sheath), which causes pain, bump, and a pinched sensation in the finger. When the tendon rubs against the sheath, more inflammation and edema occur. This causes a vicious cycle between trigger, inflammation and edema, which in some cases leads to a blockage, and it is not possible to bend or stretch the involved finger.. Cause. The causes for trigger finger onset are not fully understood. A trauma to the palm may ...

Tenosynovitis is inflammation of a tendon and its sheath. Most acute cases of flexor tenosynovitis (FT), which involves disruption of normal flexor tendon function in the hand, are the result of infection.
Joint injection of the wrist and hand region is a useful diagnostic and therapeutic tool for the family physician. In this article, the injection procedures for carpal tunnel syndrome, de Quervains tenosynovitis, osteoarthritis of the first carpometacarpal joint, wrist ganglion cysts, and digital flexor tenosynovitis (trigger finger) are reviewed. Indications for carpal tunnel syndrome injection include median nerve compression resulting from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, repetitive use injury, and other traumatic injuries to the area. For the first carpometacarpal joint, injection may be used to treat pain secondary to osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Pain associated with de Quervains tenosynovitis is treated effectively by therapeutic injection. If complicated by pain or paresthesias, wrist ganglion cysts respond to aspiration and injection.

The treatment for tenosynovitis centers on minimizing the pain and inflammation. Enrolling in a first aid course will surely help out a lot in similar conditions and injuries. Initially, you have to instruct the individual to rest the affected area and avoid any activities that caused the initial injury. In most cases, the doctor can recommend a splint or brace in order to immobilize the affected area. You should also apply an ice pack or heating pad to minimize the swelling and pain.. Other treatment options that can be recommended by the doctor include massage, ultrasound, stretching of the affected area and electrical nerve stimulation. The medications for tenosynovitis can be prescribed by the doctor. Take note that over-the-counter NSAIDs such as ibuprofen can be recommended.. In case the condition is caused by an underlying health condition such as gout or rheumatoid arthritis, the treatment will include medications to treat these conditions. The moment the affected tendon has fully ...

Rice bodies are called so due to their resemblance to grains of polished white rice on gross examination. The pathogenesis of rice body formation is unclear, but is likely related to shedding of the infarcted synovial tissue into the joint.2 These are formed by fibrin deposits on a nidus of sloughed synovium or inflamed tissue, as evidenced by rim of fibroblasts and inflammatory cells on a nidus of collagen. Types 1, 2 as well as small amounts of type 5 collagen have been demonstrated on histopathological sections.2,6,7 Rice bodies can be detected on both ultrasonography and MR imaging. Ultrasonography of tendon sheath may show low-level internal echoes or an apparent soft tissue mass, however, may fail to delineate individual rice bodies, particularly if these are too small.8 Therefore, MRI is considered the imaging modality of choice for rice bodies which appear iso- or hypointense to skeletal muscle on T1- and T2-weighted images.1. Rice bodies are known to occur commonly in rheumatic ...
population while the Z score compares it with an age-matched population. For the diagnosis of osteoporosis and assessment of fracture risk, the T score should be used only in postmenopausal women and men older than 50 years. The diagnosis of osteoporosis in healthy pre-menopausal women or healthy men younger than 50 years should not be made on the basis of the BMD result alone. These patients should be compared with age and sex matched databases to derive Z scores. Osteoporosis may be diagnosed if there is a low BMD in the appropriate clinical setting (eg: glucocorticoid therapy, hypogonadism, fragility fracture, hyper parathyroidism) One of the most important numbers in a BMD report is the least significant change (LSC). This is defined as the smallest change that can occur in BMD that we are 95% sure is due to changes in the patients BMD and not to machine or patient failure. Only the LSC in absolute BMD (reported as grams per sq cm) should be used for serial comparisons. The average LSC for ...

BACKGROUND:Avian reoviruses (ARVs) are members of theOrthoreovirus genus; one of the 12 genera of the Reoviridaefamily. The ARVs are the cause of some important diseases inpoultry such as reovirus-induced arthritis, tenosynovitis,chronic respiratory disease, and mal-absorption syndrome.OBJECTIVES: In this study, the presence of ARVs in the Iranianbreeder flocks was investigated through reverse transcriptionpolymerasechain reaction (RT-PCR) and restriction enzymefragment length polymorphism (RFLP). METHODS: A total of800 fecal swab samples were initially collected from breederflocks (older than 45 weeks of age). They were then sent to thelaboratory in containers with PBS, and after that they werepooled and finally to 120 samples were obtained. The total RNAextracted from the pooled fecal samples were used to amplify theselected parts of the S1 (1023 bp) and S4 (437 bp) genes from theARV field isolates using RT-PCR. The positive RT-PCRamplified products were further analyzed by RFLP using fiverestriction

The disease gradually narrows the tendon passageway beneath pulleys and ligaments and interferes with smooth gliding of the tendon. The resulting increase in friction is accompanied by increasing pain. Literally, the lubricating fluid can thicken or dry out around the tendon. Nodules or thickening of the tendon may appear near the entrance to the tunnel (pulley), much as thread may bunch with repeated attempts to pass it through a small eye of a needle. The enlarged tendon can cause more friction and the pain often worsens. As the disease progresses, the thickened tendon nodule may pop out of the tunnel. This is usually very painful and can be the source of apprehension when gripping and grasping with the fingers. At times, the finger locks, and it is necessary to straighten the finger with the other hand. When the irregularity becomes too large to pass beneath the pulley or ligament, motion ceases, usually with a digit locked in a bent position. This can cause a contracture (inability to ...

Tendons are the tough cords of tissue that connect muscles to bones. Two major problems linked to tendons are tendonitis and tenosynovitis. Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon. It can affect any tendon. But it is most often seen in the wrist and fingers. When the tendons become irritated, swelling, pain, and discomfort will occur. Tenosynovitis is the inflammation of the lining of the tendon sheaths which enclose the tendons. The tendon sheath is often the site which becomes inflamed. But both the sheath and the tendon can become inflamed at the same time. The cause of tenosynovitis is often unknown. But usually strain, overuse, injury, or excessive exercise may be a factor. Tendonitis may also be linked to disease such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis. Common tendon disorders include:. ...

The cause of tenosynovitis is often unknown, but usually strain, overuse, injury, or excessive exercise may be implicated. Tendonitis may also be related to disease (for example, diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis).. Common tendon disorders include the following:. ...
After a very uncomfortable steriod flare 7 days later my foot started to settle down. I still suffer with the intense dull pain under my 2nd and 3rd metatarsal and my toes feel out of joint I can flex them but it feels swollen behind them and I cannot extend them without great ripping pain. I finally got an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon and he did xrays which showed no fractures, small heel spur. He diagnosed me with Tenosynovitis of the 2nd and 3rd metatarsals and plantar fasciitis . I agreed to PRP injections . I had a 2 week inflammatory response from those ( very painful) but my plantar fasciitis is 75% better and the Tenosynovitis is finnally settling down. I am icing several times a day. I was doing calf stretches but stretching irritated the tenosynovitis so I have stopped. The only advise I was given from this doctor was to rest and return in 5 weeks. I have been wearing a very flat firm slipper that my orthotic fits in I cant seem to wear my running shoes because they make ...

TALUKDER, Sourav et al. Imaging of compound palmar ganglion with pathologic correlation. S. Afr. J. radiol. (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.1, pp.1-4. ISSN 2078-6778. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/sajr.v18i1.654.. Compound palmar ganglion, or chronic flexor tenosynovitis, most commonly of tuberculous origin, is a rare extrapulmonary manifestation of tuberculosis (TB). The flexor synovial sheath is not a common site for TB but, once involved, causes rapid involvement of all flexor tendons. We discuss the case of a 70-year-old farmer who presented to us with pain and progressive swelling of the palmar aspect of the wrist. On clinical examination, swelling both above and below the proximal wrist crease was found, with positive cross-fluctuation. On ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging, features suggestive of compound palmar ganglion were present. The patient underwent surgical resection (extensive tenosynovectomy) and chemotherapy. Post-operative histopatholgical findings correlated with ...

In the foot, localized swelling of the extensor tendons at the front (anterior) of the ankle. It is usually caused by unaccustomed, intensive distance running or from overtight lacing of running shoes. It is characterized by pain when the foot or toes are passively pointed downwards away from the shin, or when they move towards the shin against a resistance. Treatment includes application of anti-inflammatories and reduction of mechanical stress. In chronic cases, it may be necessary to release the tendons surgically. ...
OBJECTIVE: Subclinical joint inflammation in patients with arthralgia is predictive for progression to rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, the time course of progression for bone marrow edema (osteitis), synovitis, and/or tenosynovitis is unsettled. This longitudinal study assessed the course of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-detected subclinical joint inflammation during progression to RA. METHODS: Patients that progressed from clinically suspect arthralgia (CSA) to RA underwent 1.5-T MRI of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP), wrist, and metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joints at presentation with arthralgia and at first identification of synovitis assessed through physical examination (n = 31). MRIs were evaluated for osteitis, synovitis, tenosynovitis, and erosions by two readers, blinded for clinical data and order in time. To estimate changes in MRI scores between the asymptomatic state and CSA onset, scores of MRI features at CSA baseline were compared with scores from age-matched symptom-free ...

It inflames the sheath (the synovium) that surrounds the two tendons that are involved in moving your thumb and can be very painful if left untreated.. What causes Tenosynovitis?. In 1892, the 13th edition of Grays Anatomy first described this tenosynovitis as wrist sprain of washerwomen. A Swiss surgeon, Fritz de Quervain went further in 1895 and published a report on five cases of first dorsal compartment tenosynovitis and the condition has taken his name ever since.. While the exact causes are long and debated, repetitive activities requiring sideways movement of the wrist while gripping the thumb and modern handheld electronics have been shown to cause De Quervains tenosynovitis..

How Is de Quervains Disease Diagnosed?. The test most frequently used to diagnose de Quervains disease is the Finkelstein test. In this test you will make a fist with your thumb placed in your palm. When the wrist is bent toward the outside, the swollen tendons are pulled through the tight space and stretched. If this movement is painful, you may have de Quervains disease.. How Is de Quervains Disease Treated?. Treatment of de Quervains usually involves wearing a splint 24 hours a day for four to six weeks to immobilize the affected area and refraining from any activities that aggravate the condition. Ice may be applied to reduce inflammation. If symptoms continue, we may prescribe anti-inflammatory medication such as naproxen or ibuprofen or may inject the area with steroids to decrease pain and swelling. If de Quervains disease does not respond to conservative medical treatment, surgery may be recommended.. Surgical release of the tight covering of the tendon eliminates the friction that ...
This injury develops primarily from activities that require repetitious use of the hand and arm.. De Quervains disease is a condition brought on by irritation or swelling of the tendons found along the thumb side of the wrist. The irritation causes the compartment (lining) around the tendon to swell, changing the shape of the compartment or causing the tendon to thicken. This makes it difficult for the tendon to move as it should. Pain over the thumb side of the wrist is the main symptom. The pain is usually worse with repetitive use of the hand and thumb, especially when forcefully grasping things or twisting the wrist.. Location: Fingers, Hand. AAOS Fact Page: De Quervains Tendinitis. ...
Traditional surgical release to address de Quervains stenosing tenosynovitis can lead to the rare complication of volar tendon subluxation. This study presents a surgical procedure, which entails excision of the radial ridge as an alternative treatment to relieve pain associated with symptomatic volar tendon subluxation following de Quervains release. The procedure was performed on 6 patients complaining of painful volar tendon subluxation of abductor pollicis longus (APL) and extensor pollicis brevis (EPB), following a first dorsal compartment release and postoperative splinting. We opened the same incision sharply, with direct view of the tendons of the first dorsal compartment. The wrist was ranged through extension and flexion, and volar subluxation of the APL and EPB over the prominent radial ridge was confirmed. The bony portion of the radial ridge was excised and filed smooth. The periosteal flap is advanced over the ridge and sutured into place. The APL and EPB tendons were released ...
De Quervain tenosynovitis is a condition that can cause wrist and thumb pain. Tendons connect muscles in your wrist and forearm to the bones in your thumb. The tendons have a protective cover (sheath). The sheaths lining makes a fluid that lets the tendons slide easily when you straighten your wrist and thumb. If any of these tendons are irritated or injured, they can become swollen and inflamed. This is called de Quervain tenosynovitis.. ...

A 15-month-old, spayed female, Bernese mountain dog was presented to the Institute of Small Animal Surgery at the University of Zurich because of chronic left forelimb lameness. The referring veterinarian diagnosed pain in the left shoulder region and had treated the dog with systemic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and restricted exercise for a two-week period. The follow-up examination revealed only minimal improvement and therefore, the dog was referred for further diagnostic evaluation. Chronic bicipital tenosynovitis and tendinitis of the infraspinatus muscle was diagnosed based on survey radiographs, arthrography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and synovial fluid cytology. The dog underwent three sessions of extracorporeal shockwave therapy and substantial clinical improvement was observed. On follow-up examinations, only mild left forelimb lameness was evident following exercise, and changes in the intertubercular groove and at the supraglenoid tuberosity appeared less active ...
