Fracture Treatment & Procedures

Diagnosis of Hand Fractures

Hand fractures are diagnosed through a detailed physical examination and X-rays. This approach ensures accurate identification of the fracture type and its severity, which is crucial for determining the most effective treatment plan.

Treatment Approaches

  • Realignment and Reduction: If the bone fragments are misaligned, they need to be manipulated back into place, a process known as reduction.
  • Immobilization: Critical for proper healing, immobilization often involves using a splint or cast to restrict movement.
  • Pain Management: Over-the-counter pain relievers or, in severe cases, opioids may be recommended. It’s important to discuss the risks and benefits of these medications with the healthcare provider.
  • Post-Treatment Rehabilitation: After the removal of immobilization devices, rehabilitation exercises or physical therapy are essential to reduce stiffness and restore movement.
  • Surgical Options: In complex fractures, surgery might be necessary to implant pins, plates, rods, or screws to facilitate proper healing.

Trigger Finger Treatment

Conservative Treatment

    • Medications: NSAIDs can be used to alleviate pain.
    • Rest: Avoiding activities that worsen the condition is recommended.
    • Splinting: A splint can help rest the affected tendon.
    Stretching Exercises: Gentle exercises maintain mobility in the finger.

Advanced Treatment Options

  • Steroid Injection: Injecting a steroid near the tendon sheath can reduce inflammation and improve tendon movement.
  • Needle Procedure: A needle is used to break apart tissue blocking tendon movement, often with ultrasound guidance.
  • Surgery: In severe cases, surgery may be performed to cut open the narrowed section of the tendon sheath.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Diagnostic Process

  • Symptom Review: Understanding the pattern of symptoms is crucial, especially those occurring in specific fingers or during certain activities.
  • Physical Examination: Tests the feeling in the fingers and the strength of the hand muscles.
  • X-ray and Ultrasound: Used to exclude other causes of wrist pain and to visualize the median nerve and surrounding structures.
  • Electromyography and Nerve Conduction Study: These tests measure electrical activity in muscles and the speed of nerve signal transmission, helping to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatments & Procedures

  • Early Stage Management: Involves frequent breaks, activity modifications, and cold packs to reduce swelling.
  • Nonsurgical Therapy: Includes wrist splinting and NSAIDs for pain relief.

Surgical Options: Carpal tunnel release surgery, performed either as an open surgery or endoscopically, involves cutting the ligament and pressing on the median nerve to relieve pressure.

Carpal tunnel release surgery is generally effective in relieving pressure on the median nerve, with most patients experiencing significant symptom relief. The choice between endoscopic and open surgery can be discussed with your surgeon.

As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks, such as infection or nerve damage, but these are rare. Steroid injections and surgery are generally safe and effective treatments.

Recovery time varies, but many patients experience relief soon after surgery. Complete internal healing may take several months, with gradual return to normal hand use recommended.
