Abstract
Trigger finger general information
Trigger finger, also known as stenosing flexor tenosynovitis, is a clinical condition affecting
the flexor tendons of the hand. It is a common cause of hand pain and disability. Its prevalence
is estimated at 2% of the general population(1,2), but it appears to be more frequent in the
presence of some specific conditions such as diabetes, hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis,
Dupuytren’s contracture, De Quervain’s tenovaginitis and carpal tunnel syndrome(2–6). The
pathology is related to a mechanical disorder caused by an alteration of the retinacular sheath
of the finger flexor tendons. The hypertrophy and fibrocartilaginous metaplasia restrict the
tendon’s mobility and can lead to the classic symptoms: discomfort and/or pain in the hand,
triggering while mobilizing the involved digit. In some cases, the finger shows a positional
contracture of the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint. Most of the time, the triggering occurs
near the metacarpal head of the finger, where the first annular pulley (A1 pulley) is located(7–9).
