The aim of this study is to compare the results obtained by longitudinal and transverse incision in de Quervain's disease. According to our data, transverse incision causes damage to superficial radial nerve and then neuroma in the scar which is very painful.

The tendons to these muscles pass through the first extensor compartment at the wrist: therefore increased static activity of these muscles coupled with the metacarpophalangeal joint held in extension may increase the risk of developing tenosynovitis at this compartment site/e.g., de Quervain's disease: Moore, 1997).
