Because the incisions are so small, no stitches are required, and most patients are able to return to work the day after surgery.
What is Trigger Finger?
Trigger finger, one of the most widely recognized forms of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI), is a painful condition in which the affected finger or thumb gets locked into a bent position, and then loosens with a pop. Common in patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Diabetes, trigger finger occurs when the tendons in the finger or thumb become inflamed due to a narrowing of the sheath that surrounds the tendon in the affected digit.
The Solution: AccuCision TFR™
Accu-Cision Trigger Finger Release is a front line procedure designed to minimize patient discomfort without compromising precision and effectiveness. The minimally invasive procedure involves widening the aperture of the rigid tendon, by dividing a small band called an A1 pulley. This allows the tendons more space to move so that they can regain control of the hand.
