Trigger finger is an entity seen commonly by hand surgeons. It is produced by a size mismatch between the flexor tendon and the A1 pulley, which causes pain, clicking, catching, and loss of motion of the affected finger. The diagnosis is usually easy but other pathological processes (extensor apparatus instability, locked metacarpo-phalangeal joint) must be excluded. Treatment modalities in trigger finger include splinting, corticosteroid injection and/or surgery. Indication depends on the clinical form of trigger finger.
