This article reviews historical background, essential practice principles, and the new emerging area of wide awake hand surgery. It outlines the reasons that wide awake, local anaesthesia, no tourniquet surgery has emerged so quickly in the last 10 years over the world. I explain the origin of the concepts and some of the challenges of getting the technique accepted; in particular, the debunking of the myth of epinephrine danger in the finger. I review the most recent developments in several operations in this rapidly changing field of the tourniquet-free approach...

The aim of this study was to review the literature of decompression of the cubital tunnel with medial epicondylectomy and to assess outcomes and complications. Twenty-one case series reported on 886 medial epicondylectomies. The mean percentage of patients obtaining improvement of one or more McGowan grade was 79%. The mean percentage obtaining a good/excellent Wilson Krout grade of outcome was 83%. Of six comparative studies, two showed no significant differences in outcomes between medial epicondylectomy and transposition procedures, and three reported better outcomes with medial epicondylectomy...

In a prospective randomized study, we studied whether adding active flexion to a modified Kleinert regime changed outcomes of flexor tendon repairs in zone 1, 2 and 3 in 73 fingers (53 patients). Evaluation included active range of finger motion, grip and pinch strengths. Twelve months after surgery, the increase in range of active finger motion after adding active flexion was insignificant compared with that with the modified Kleinert regime. According to the Strickland criteria, 20 out of 29 fingers had excellent or good recovery after adding active flexion, as did 28 out of 34 fingers with the modified Kleinert regime; we could not detect significant improvement of the good and excellent rate...

Our purpose was to review the clinical usefulness of the scratch collapse test (SCT) in the diagnosis of proximal entrapment of the median nerve in the forearm. Eighteen consecutive cases were reviewed. The diagnosis was based on the patient's symptoms and signs. The SCT was positive in the affected forearm in all clinical assessments before surgery and it was negative in all after median nerve release. An anatomical reason for nerve compression was identified in all cases at operation. The SCT is a useful tool for the diagnosis of the proximal entrapment of the median nerve...

We present the outcomes of flexor pollicis longus tendon repairs in 34 thumbs using a six-strand M-Tang repair with venting of one or two pulleys according to site of tendon laceration. The A2 pulley was vented in all three thumbs with zone 1 injury. In 31 thumbs with zone 2 injuries, the oblique pulley was vented partially or entirely. Twenty-two thumbs had both the A1 and oblique pulleys vented. Six to 46 months post-surgery, 14 thumbs with zone 2 injuries were rated excellent, 13 good, three fair and one failure according to Tang criteria...

The Lim/Tsai tendon repair technique has been modified clinically to achieve a 6-strand repair using a single looped suture with one extratendinous knot. We compared biomechanical performance of the original and modified methods using 20 porcine flexor digitorum profundus tendons. The ultimate tensile strength, load to 2 mm gap force, mode of failure, and time taken to repair each tendon were recorded during a single cycle loading test in 10 tendons with each repair method. We found that despite having the same number of core strands, the single looped suture modified Lim/Tsai technique possessed significantly greater ultimate tensile strength and load to 2 mm gap force...

We report techniques and survival incidence of three subtotally and nine completely degloved fingers in seven patients. We performed end-to-end arterial repairs in seven fingers, vein graft repairs for arteries in two fingers, arteriovenous anastomoses in three fingers. End-to-end vein anastomosis was performed in all fingers. One finger requred re-exploration. Soft tissues in the eight degloved fingers survived completely, two failed completely, and two were partially necrotic. We conclude from our results that following revascularization, the skin from a completely degloved finger skin will survive in approximately two cases out of three...

This retrospective study examined whether the presenting complaint of numbness is relieved post-operatively in severe carpal tunnel syndrome and also assessed any correlation between outcomes of the first and second procedures in staged bilateral carpal tunnel releases. Carpal tunnel release (60 open and 38 endoscopic) was done in 49 patients with bilateral severe carpal tunnel syndrome. There was complete resolution of numbness post-operatively in 77% ( n = 75) of hands. The median post-operative time before complete resolution of numbness was 21 days (IQR 8 to 21; range 3 to 482)...

We report on the outcomes of flexor tendon repair in zone 2 subzones with early active mobilization in 102 fingers in 88 consecutive patients. There were 28, 53, 15, and six fingers with repairs in zones 2A to 2D, respectively. Rupture of the repair occurred in four fingers, all in zone 2B. Excluding those with repair ruptures, the mean total active motion was 230° (range 143°-286°). Evaluated with Tang's criteria, the outcomes were ranked excellent in 39 fingers, good in 46, fair in ten, poor in three, and failure in four...
