Sometimes, people feel persistent pain in their hands for a long time and they tend to ignore that considering it a normal one. But most cases of continuous hand pain result in serious injuries and ignoring them could make the condition worse. It is seen that in most cases of hand pain where people have ignored the condition for long required surgery and in certain cases, Hand Fracture System was used.
In most cases of hand pain, people don’t be able to analyze whether they require surgery or not and this is because they don’t consult with the specialist. In this post, we will discuss some cases that’ll help you identify whether you need hand tendon surgery or not.
Conditions Indicating that You require Hand Tendon Surgery
Also known as tenosynovitis, trigger finger is the condition in which the person becomes unable to straighten or move one or more of his/her finger. In this condition, inflammation in the tissues of the finger or thumb is seen along with that of synovium and associated tendons. In mild or moderate cases, the condition can be treated non-surgically while, if the mobility of the finger is greatly affected, surgery is required.
One of the most common locations where tendonitis is seen is the hand and the wrist. Tendonitis is characterized by the inflammation and irritation of the tendons that result in pain. The severe cases of tendonitis in the hand are known to limit the movement of the wrist. Surgery in the case of tendonitis is only suggested when the condition is serious and has reached its advanced stage.
Injury to Tendon
Tendon injuries are most commonly seen due to traumatic injuries in the hand like fractures and jammed fingers. Flexor tendons are the commonly affected ones. In severe cases, reconstructive surgery may be done to relieve symptoms and bring back the normal functioning of the hands.
This is a degenerative condition that could occur in any joint of our body and the hand joint is one of the most common locations where arthritis is seen. If we talk about rheumatoid arthritis, then this condition could also affect tendons and may result in severe inflammation. This condition can be managed non-operatively if early symptoms are noticed and treated. If ignored, the condition could become worse and surgical treatment may remain the last option.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Another condition indicating the requirement of hand tendon surgery is carpal tunnel syndrome. This syndrome generally occurs due to the overuse of the hand and wrist, and this may result in the inflammation and compression of the median nerve. This causes pain and numbness, and may also result in the loss of functioning of the hand. If detected early, non-operative methods like the application of a brace may come in handy. While on the other hand, if delayed, surgery may be the best possible option.
These are some of the orthopedic conditions in the hand that may force you to undergo hand tendon surgery. If other conditions like fracture are associated, orthopedic devices may be required during surgery. Siora Surgicals Pvt.
