How We DO Trigger Finger Surgery
Trigger finger or tenosing tenosynovitis implies a condition that occurs when the pulley inside the wrist swells, becoming too thick; causing friction, therefore the tendon cannot glide smoothly through the pulley. Naturally, pulleys secure the tendons close to the bone, supporting the tendon during finger movement.
Causes of Trigger Finger:
- Repeated strong gripping
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
