The trigger or bouncing finger or finger that gets stuck or just pain in the joint of the finger as some of the doctors call it is caused by a thickening of the first pulley that is at the base of the finger. In a study I led with my colleague Dr. Adi Moore from Meir Hospital, we have shown that the proximal edge of the first pulley at the base of the fingers has become thicker over the years and is, in fact, the reason for the appearance of the triggering. So now there is an answer to the question "why is the trigger finger formed?" And so there is a solution for the release of the trigger finger or the thumb that I perform - an operation during which the first pulley at the base of the finger or the trigger of the thumb can be trimmed and so the pulley thickening can be found Adjacent to it - the tendon undergoes thickening in a part that is close to and away from the pulley and thus practically creates the same click or jamming or stuck finger that so many suffer from.
Trigger finger is a phenomenon associated with the continuous use of the hand with repeated loads.
Known for diseases such as diabetes, autoimmune arthritis and various connective tissue diseases. In exceptional cases, you can be recognized as having a professional illness with the workers compensation insurance. locked trigger finger is a real disability to function. Because of the structure of the hand when one finger is locked the movement of the adjacent fingers is also restricted. The locked-finger release surgery is a simple operation to perform but nevertheless requires a thorough knowledge of the anatomy of the hand. Surgery for the release of a trigger or locked finger can be performed under local or local anesthesia combined with sedation or general anesthesia. Trigger finger surgery is sometimes more complex in people with a tendency to trigger fingers and these are people who sometimes suffer from a condition called prepully which is actually the presence of pathological tissue at a specific location near the pulley and this is often the reason for the failure of a trigger finger release. During the surgery to release the trigger, there may be complications including nerve and blood vessels that are adjacent to the surgical area. The nerves on either side of the finger are very close to the surgical field and in situations where the postoperative sensation is lost may be due to iatrogenic injury during surgery. The most common complication in grasping or jumping finger release surgery is the loss of the full range of motion of the finger. moving the full-range jumping finger immediately after surgery is very important. Finger movements are critical and therefore good post-operative training after release of a trigger finger is the key to recovery and good results. Risks are a part of all surgeries, but as a rule, a finger-popping or trigger-finger surgery is very safe and the total risk is a few percent when the surgery is done by a skilled surgeon. The surgery lasts about ten minutes net and can be done in several forms of anesthesia. Postoperative rehabilitation is short and can be performed with the hand the day after surgery.
Trigger or locked fingers interfere with function and cause unnecessary discomfort and disabillity.
