The change in three-dimensional geometry of deep flexor tendon repairs under tension: a qualitative assessment using X-ray

Tim Peltz, Roger Haddad, Peter Scougall, Sean Nicklin, Mark Gianoutsos & Bill Walsh
Introduction: Early mobilization of repaired flexor tendons promotes healing and better outcomes than immobilization. Tension on the reconstruction however produces gap formation at the repair site, which is detrimental. Much progress has been made in the optimization of repair techniques to minimiz[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
