Abstract

 Background: To evaluate safety and efficacy of percutaneous release of trigger finger in multiple digits involvement in comparison with single digit involvement.  Method: A number of 100 patients (131 fingers) were treated by percutaneous release and divided into two groups: single digit (group A) and multiple digits (group B). They were followed up for one year. Success rate, pain, complications and duration of analgesic use were studied and then compared in both groups. Results: All patients in both groups were treated successfully without any recurrence in a one-year follow-up. No complication was observed, but postoperative duration of pain was significantly different between the two groups. Period of painkiller use was also different between the two groups. Conclusion: Percutaneous release is a safe and effective treatment for trigger fingers even if multiple digits are involved. It is also safe in thumb and index finger involvement and diabetic patients.
