Abstract


Purpose. To improve the results of treatment in patients with chronic injuries of the long extensor tendon of the hand first finger.
Materials and Methods. The authors proposed an original technique for tendoplasty of the long extensor of the hand first finger by transposition of the tendon of the intact long muscle abducting the thumb. They analyzed the long-term functional results of treatment by the proposed technique in 32 patients within the periods from one to ten years.
Results. The following results were obtained: excellent – 81.3 % (n=26), good – 18.7 % (n=6). There were no satisfactory and unsatisfactory surgical outcomes.
Conclusion. The proposed plasty technique allows to improve surgical functional results significantly when recovering the tendons of the hand first finger extensors in different posttraumatic periods.
