Joe has had a successful outcome following surgery. Image I shows the web space release result. Image II shows the palmar view of the thumb flap. Image II shows the MCPJ flexion result. Treatment included the provision of a dynamic finger flexion splint to improve and maintain MCPJ flexion following the dorsal capsule and web creep release.
Joe underwent surgery to release the web creep and improve MCPJ flexion of the left hand. Image I demonstrates the hand prior to surgery with first web space contracture, poor MCPJ flexion of all the fingers and web creep of digits II-IV. Image II shows the MCPJ flexion following surgery. Image III shows the release of the first webspace and dorsal interosseous muscle contracture. Image IV shows the result of the first web space release using a Superficial Iliac Artery Groin
