TENODESIS: A. Passive insufficiency of finger extensors occurs when the wrist is flexed, causing the fingers to extend. B. Passive insufficiency of the finger flexors occurs when the wrist is extended, causing the fingers to flex.

tenodesis

(ten-ŏ-dē′sĭs) [Gr. tenon, tendon, + desis, a binding]
1. Surgical fixation of a tendon. Usually a tendon is transferred from its initial point of origin to a new origin in order to restore muscle balance to a joint, to restore lost function, or to increase active power of joint motion.
2. Flexing of the fingers through tendon action of the extrinsic finger flexor muscles when they are stretched across the wrist joint during wrist extension. This mechanism is used for functional grip in the quadriplegic individual when paralysis is due to loss below the sixth cervical vertebra.

In terms of application, the Global Orthopedic Soft Tissue Repair Devices market can be segmented into the following: Anterior Cruciate Ligament/Posterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction, Meniscal Repair, Rotator Cuff Repair, Hip Arthroscopy, Shoulder Labrum Repair, and Biceps Tenodesis.
market for orthopedic soft tissue repair includes anterior and posterior cruciate ligament (ACL/PCL) reconstruction and fixation products, cartilage repair therapies, meniscal repair devices, rotator cuff repair devices, shoulder and labrum repair devices, rotator cuff graft reinforcement devices, hip arthroscopy devices and biceps tenodesis devices.
Ultrasound guidance in bedside procedures such as corticosteroid injections and needle-based tenodesis procedures is key not only to delivering therapeutics to the intended location but also to minimizing the risk of placing needles in sensitive neurovascular areas.
Some people with mid- to low-level cervical (C) SCI achieve useful tenodesis grasp, which is opposition of the thumb and the index and middle fingers through reciprocal wrist extension and finger flexion, with the aid of a wrist-driven flexor hinge orthosis (WDFHO) [5-6].
Orthopaedic soft tissue repair products and associated instruments, including suture anchors (absorbable, non-absorbable and metallic), knee ligament fixation products, meniscal repair products, biceps tenodesis repair screws, arthroscopic resection products, radio-frequency ablation products and arthroscopic fluid management products.
3 to 6 weeks: protected range of motion for injured joints, passive and active, protected tenodesis exercises in the splint until splint was discontinued at sixth week; at 4 to 6 weeks: minimal gentle functional activities to pick up light objects or assist in minimal activities of daily life;
One of those devices is the Biceptor Tenodesis System, an updated approach to bicep tendon repair that enables surgeons to reattach the tendon to the humerus, or upper arm bone, using an all-arthroscopic procedure.
