Abstract

We describe a new surgical technique for the treatment of de Quervain tenosynovitis, which consists of lengthening the first dorsal compartment without disruption of continuity and without using a suture. Our results in 12 wrists operated on in 10 patients indicated complete relief of symptoms. The advantages of the technique include: simplicity, restoration of normal anatomy, and prevention of complications (scarring, adhesions, and subluxation of tendons).
