Recovery In Days, Not Weeks

A New Way to Treat Trigger Finger for Faster Recovery

Now there is an alternative surgical option—Trigger Finger Release with real-rime ultrasound guidance.

Trigger Finger, also known as stenosing tenosynovitis is a condition that causes pain, stiffness, and a sensation of locking or catching when you bend and straighten your finger Although all fingers can experience this condition, the ring finger and thumb are most often affected.

What Is Trigger Finger Release?

Trigger Finger Release (TFR) surgery is used to treat TF. The goal of TFR is to release the A1 pulley above the flexor tendon so it can glide more freely and easily through the tendon

sheath. The release unlocks the finger to allow for normal movement and range of motion.

Important Benefits of TFR Using Real-Time Ultrasound Guidance Include:

• Patients can return to normal activities and work as tolerated, as early as one day after procedure

• Performed in a procedure room or office setting

• Typically performed using local anesthesia

• Small hand incision typically closed without sutures

• Reduces or eliminates need for opioids – if needed, most patients use Tylenol® or ibuprofen post procedure

What Is Trigger Finger (Stenosing Tenosynovitis)?

Trigger Finger (TF) is one of the most common problems affecting the hand. It afflicts approximately 9 million Americans with stiffness, pain, and difficulty bending in one or more fingers. Left untreated, the finger can become locked in a bent position.

Trigger Finger Release (TFR) with real-time ultrasound guidance can alleviate the pain and inconvenience of trigger finger and quickly have you back doing the day-to-day activities you love. Minimal scarring and immediate motion of the finger are some of the notable benefits.1-3 If you are ready for long-term relief then trigger finger release with UltraGuideTFR and real- time ultrasound guidance may be right for you.

Common Trigger Finger symptoms include:

• Pain at the base of the affected finger, where the finger joins with the palm

• Swelling within the affected tendon or development of a cyst

• Stiffness or loss of motion: difficulty in bending the finger
