Abstract

Extensor tendon injuries are commonly encountered and are frequently treated with less regard than flexor tendon injuries. However, several factors make them as difficult to treat and more prone to suture line rupture than their palmar counterparts. A technique is described to protect a tendon juncture on the back of the hand following tendon disruption. This allows early finger motion to prevent joint stiffness while preventing suture line disruption.
