Surgical release and tenosynovectomy of the carpal tunnel was performed; pathologic features demonstrated chronic inflammation of the synovium and absence of granulomas.
A combination of tenosynovectomy and prolonged antimycobacterial treatment, guided by in vitro strain susceptibility, was used in all the reported cases; a positive outcome was achieved in 6-14 months.
An irregular sliding channel was smoothed out in two patients and two asymptomatic patients underwent tenosynovectomy
and tendon release.
Thorough cleaning and tenosynovectomy
was done and specimen sent for histopathology.
Anatomical variations of the extensor polhds brevis tendon and adductor pollicis longus tendon-relation to tenosynovectomy
Afterwards, a complete tenosynovectomy
with extensive debridement of the surrounding granulation tissue and carpal tunnel decompression was performed (Figure 3), and the wound was then primarily closed.
In the operating room he underwent incision and drainage of the left ring finger, flexor tendon sheath and palm with tenosynovectomy
Dixon performed a right peroneal tendon tenosynovectomy
on the plaintiff with a goal of alleviating her ongoing problem with right ankle pain.
The anatomy ofthe variations ofthe EDM is important for successful treatment of De Quervain disease, where the tenosynovectomy
has to be performed.
is performed in patients with refractory tenosynovitis.
DISCUSSION: The anatomical knowledge of the arrangement of Extensor tendons is of prime significance for surgeons performing tendon transfers, tenosynovectomy
and other reconstructive surgeries.
After the patient's general health stabilized, he underwent open carpal tunnel release, flexor tenosynovectomy
, and collection of the purulent drainage.
