  • Surgical management of hand deformities in patients with recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa. [Journal Article]
    J Plast Surg Hand Surg 2019; :1-7Zhou X, Zhang Y, … Sun D
  • Recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB) is a congenital disease caused by a mutation in the COL7A1 gene and frequently results in hand contractures and pseudosyndactyly. Although multiple treatments exist that can improve the hand malformations, there are currently still no radical cures for this disease because of its high recurrence rate. The present study reports our experiences on h…
  • A Reconstructive Extensor Tendon Centralization Technique for Sagittal Band Disruption. [Journal Article]
    Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2019Vyrva O, Kvann J, … Ozyurekoglu T
  • Sagittal band injuries may result in extensor digitorum communis (EDC) tendon instability and may require operative treatment for symptomatic loss of extension, pain, and snapping at the metacarpophalangeal joint (MCPJ). Operative methods vary according to the source of donor tissue, as well as the anchor point of attachment. We present a surgical technique that diminishes tension of the repair w…
  • Evaluation of Load Distributions and Contact Areas in 4 Common Grip Types Used in Daily Living Activities. [Journal Article]
    J Hand Surg Am 2019Ergen HI, Oksuz C
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that the LD and CA patterns differ widely among standard, pinch, lateral, and tripod grips. The percentage of CA occurring on the thumb was maximum in all grip types.This information is important to optimize the design of artificial manipulators or assistive devices and to optimize the hand rehabilitation process. In addition, results of the study can be used to guide the design of prostheses and biomedical implants better.
  • Fracture of the Fifth Finger Sesamoid: A Rare Injury. [Case Reports]
    Indian J Orthop 2019 Sep-Oct; 53(5):616-617Aslantürk O, Ergen E
  • Fracture of the hand sesamoid bones is rare. Fractures are usually missed initially. Mechanism of injury is usually reported as hyperextension and less frequently as direct compression of metacarpophalangeal joint. Fracture of the hand sesamoid bones has been usually reported in the thumb. We report a case of fifth-digit sesamoid fracture, treated conservatively. In 6 months of followup, the pati…
  • Alternative to Vein Grafts for Arterial Repair in Avulsion Amputations of Thumb: Case Series. [Case Reports]
    Indian J Orthop 2019 Sep-Oct; 53(5):613-615Dodakundi C, Jovanovic N, … Alawadi K
  • The first reimplantation of a complete thumb amputation using microvascular anastomosis in a human was successfully conducted by Komatsu in 1968. Avulsion amputations of the thumb at the level of metacarpophalangeal joints pose a tedious task for direct arterial repair, even with adequate bone shortening. Owing to the short length of princeps pollicis from the deep arch, tight working space in th…
