Flexor tendon surgery: advances in the field of hand surgery

Flexor tendon surgery: advances in the field of hand surgery

Orvosi Hetilap 153(21): 811-820

Reconstruction of the flexor tendon injuries is one of the most difficult problems in hand surgery, because the postoperative end-results are often unfavorable. The author discusses the history of the flexor tendon surgery, and then he describes the development of the knowledge regarding the anatomy, the blood supply and the tendon healing of the flexor tendons from the beginning until now. After that he describes the development in suture materials, suture techniques, primary and secondary tendon reconstruction operations, postoperative treatment and rehabilitation programmes. The author describes what kind of progress to be expected in this field in the near future, and then he expresses his viewpoint about the development in the international and national hand surgical societies. He encloses a detailed list of literature for those who are interested in the field.
