Comparison of Aspiration Followed by Intra-Lesional Steroid Injection and Surgical Excision in Management of Dorsal Wrist Ganglion.
World J Plast Surg 2019; 8(2):181-184WJ

Abstract

BACKGROUND

About 60-70% of ganglion cysts are found in dorsal part of the wrist. This study compared aspiration followed by intra-lesional steroid (triamcinolone acetate) injection and surgical excision in the management of dorsal wrist ganglion.

METHODS

From Aug 2016 to Aug 2018 in Department of General Surgery, Government Medical College Srinagar, India, 86 Patients with dorsal wrist ganglions were enrolled. The patients were divided to two groups undergoing two different treatment modalities including 68 patients of aspiration with intralesional triamcinolone acetonide injected into the cyst (group A) and 18 patients with surgical excision (group B). Follow up time was 1, 3, 6 and 12 months.

RESULTS

Successful treatment was noticed in 59 patients of group A (86.8%), and in 15 patients of group B (83.3%).

CONCLUSION

Aspiration followed by intra-lesional steroid injection was better managed in comparison to surgical excision.
