Assessment of Treatment in Injuries of Finger Flexor Tendons


The system of evaluation of treatment outcomes of finger flexor tendons are presented. The system is based on the restoration of total range of active movement only in intrafalangeous joints taking into account the contractures in functionally disadvantageous position. Using this system it is possible to evaluate the treatment outcomes in case of simultaneous injury of superficial and deep flexor tendons, isolated injury of deep flexor tendons of II-V fingers as well as long flexor tendon of the thumb.
