Flexor stenosing tenosynovitis, also known as trigger finger, is characterized by a finger that becomes stuck in a curled position, only to “snap” back into a relaxed position later. Usually, in severe cases, the finger remains stuck, never popping back into the relaxed positions. For these individuals, a percutaneous trigger finger release may be helpful.
During a percutaneous trigger finger release, the patient is given local anesthesia and the doctor uses a needle to release the afflicted finger from its cramped position.
