If a septum between the abductor pollicis longus and the EPB was identified, it was also released.
These patients must be carefully monitored with serial radiography as the strong pull of the abductor pollicis longus (APL) frequently leads to displacement.
There was evidence of synovitis in the intercarpal joints and tenosynovitis of the extensor pollicis brevis (Figure 3) and the abductor pollicis longus.
Anatomical variations of the extensor pollicis brevis tendon and abductor pollicis longus tendon-relation to tenosynovectomy.
Restoration of pinch in ulnar nerve paralysis: extensor carpi radialis longus to adductor pollicis and abductor pollicis longus to first dorsal interosseus tendon transfers.
In 1981, Thomson (18) began performing a novel technique of LRTI using the abductor pollicis longus (APL) tendon rather than the FCR tendon.
The tendons of abductor pollicis Longus and extensor pollicis Brevis were carefully exposed up to their proximal and distal attachment.
(1,2) It is caused by impaired gliding of the tendons of the abductor pollicis longus (APL) and extensor pollicis brevis (EPB) muscles.
The same hand surgeon injected 3 cc of 1% lidocaine, 1 cc betamethasone, and 1 cc Omnipaque 300 dye into the abductor pollicis longus sheath and then attempted, with ulnar deviation of the needle, to fill the extensor pollicis brevis sheath.
The RCE muscle tendons at the distal third level of the forearm were found under the muscle fibers of the abductor pollicis longus and extensor pollicis brevis, and distally to the retinaculum of the extensor muscles under the extensor pollicis longus muscle tendon, forming part of the dorsoulnar corner of the anatomical snuffbox in 100 % of the samples in the case of the ECRL muscle tendon, and in 26.7 % (8 of 30 samples) in the case of the ECRB muscle tendon.
Metacarpal muscular insertions include the abductor pollicis longus (APL) at the proximal base, the adductor pollicis distal and ulnar, and the thenar muscles volarly.
