Volar locked plating has become a standard treatment for operative stabilization of distal radius fractures. It is assumed that volar plating portends a low risk of extensor tendon irritation and rupture, especially when compared with dorsal plating constructs; however, extensor tendon tenosynovitis and rupture is a well-described complication after volar plating of the distal radius. Dorsal cortical penetration of screws may go unnoticed with traditional intraoperative fluoroscopic techniques and may contribute to extensor tendon irritation...

We report two unrelated cases of tenosynovitis caused by Mycobacterium malmoense in kidney transplant recipients. Both patients received immunosuppression and were referred to our tertiary hospital because of persisting complaints lasting >6 months not responding to corticosteroids or surgery. The mycobacterial cultures were positive for the slow-growing M. malmoense after several weeks of incubation. The patient in Case 1 was treated with a combination of surgical debridement and antibiotics, whereas the patient in Case 2 was only treated surgically...

We report a case of carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger wrist caused by localized amyloidosis. A 37-year-old man, who worked as a manufacturer, presented with a 5-month history of tingling sensation in the three radial fingers of the left hand and a painful click at the volar aspect of the wrist during digital motion. We divided the transverse carpal ligament and detected diffuse tenosynovitis that was especially severe around the flexor digitorum profundus tendons. Histological findings led to a diagnosis of amyloidosis...

A high clinical suspicion and greater understanding of the anatomy and pathophysiology of lateral ankle injuries have enabled early diagnosis and treatment-improving outcomes of acute peroneal tendon tears. Multiple conditions can be the cause of lateral ankle pain attributed to the peroneal tendons: tenosynovitis, tendinosis, subluxation and dislocation, stenosing tenosynovitis, abnormality related to the os peroneum, as well as tears of the peroneal tendons. It is imperative for the clinician to maintain a high suspicion for peroneal tendon abnormality when evaluating patients with lateral ankle pain...

Ankle joint evaluation is underestimated in many clinical and sonographic scores used for evaluation and follow-up of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. Agreement on examination parameters is poor among sonographic scores that include the ankle joint. More effort is needed to detect the value of ankle joint examination in RA and assessment of ultrasonographic signs according to frequency, disease duration and activity. The objective of this study was to use ultrasound (US) to detect ankle involvement in active RA and to compare findings with disease duration, disease activity and assessment of ankle bone erosion...

De Quervain's tenosynovitis is a repetitive strain injury involving synovial inflammation of the tendons of the first extensor compartment of the wrist. It is relatively common in the general population, and is the most common radial-sided tendinopathy seen in athletes. Identifying a genetic marker associated with de Quervain's tenosynovitis could provide a useful tool to help identify those individuals with an increased risk for injury. A genome-wide association screen was performed using publically available data from the Research Program in Genes, Environment and Health (RPGEH) including 4,129 cases and 98,374 controls...
