Pull-out wire fixation for acute mallet finger fractures with k-wire stabilization of the distal interphalangeal joint
. J Hand Surg Am 2010; 35:1864-9.
An important improvement of clinical features of systemic sclerosis such as the increase in the angle of interphalangeal joints
, the decrease of skin score index, and the decrease of arterial blood pressure as well as an increase in skin temperature of distal parts of the hand results from the vasodilating effect of ozone, probably through the synthesis of nitric oxide synthase (NOS).
Digital skin creases are located consistently proximal to their corresponding distal interphalangeal joints
, lying at mean distances of 7-7.8 mm proximal to the joint.
In the present patient enthesitis was an important pathology that explained the pencil-in-cup' deformity in multiple metacarpophalangeal and interphalangeal joints
due to bone erosion and bony fusion2 and her flexor tenosynovitis and toes valgus.
Two months later (February 2013), the patient's rheumatoid arthritis flared, with significant bilateral hand tenderness, swelling, and synovitis in metacarpal phalangeal joints and proximal interphalangeal joints
. Morning stiffness increased to 2 hours and sedimentation rate was above 50.
Based on the results of this study and the degree of contracture of the distal interphalangeal joint
observed in a given horse, it is possible that digital hyperextension can be null or produced to a lesser extent when the deep digital flexor tenotomy is performed at the mid-metacarpal level.
The most common locations of arthritis pain in the hands are at the base of the thumb, where the thumb and wrist come together (also known as the basal joint), at the end joint closest to the finger tip (the distal interphalangeal joint
), and at the middle joint of a finger (the proximal interphalangeal joint
First toe dorsiflexion and plantar flexion strength was 4/ 5 at the MTP and 3+/5 at the interphalangeal joint
. Rehabilitation included functional electrical stimulation to address considerable calf atrophy, strengthening exercises, functional retraining, and progressive return to dance.
Dislocation of the interphalangeal joint
of a toe is a rare injury, and when it occurs, it usually involves the great toe (1).
There were multiple areas of joint space narrowing with osteophyte formation; these were most notable at the left third DIP joint and the right second PIP interphalangeal joint
. Several interphalangeal joints
contained central erosions, which were especially prominent in the right second DIP.
Palpation of the A1 pulley and joint play of the distal interphalangeal joint
reproduced/exacerbated the reported pain.
Response of the adductor pollicis muscle was recorded with the transducer fixed over the distal interphalangeal joint
of the thumb after train-of-four (TOF) of the ulnar nerve with supramaximal current (50 to 60 mA, 0.2 ms, 2 Hz) every 15s.
