Ganglions of the hand and wrist: determinants of treatment choice.

The aim of this study was to determine whether psychological factors (depression, catastrophic thinking, and pain anxiety) and pain intensity are associated with choice of operative treatment. Ninety new patients with a ganglion cyst on their hand or wrist completed psychological questionnaires (Pain Catastrophizing Scale, Pain Anxiety Symptoms Scale, and Center for the Epidemiological Study of Depression instrument) and an ordinal measure of pain intensity. After a minimum of 4 months, patients were contacted to determine if they chose operative treatment, to rate their pain intensity, and to complete the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand questionnaire. Younger patients were more likely to choose operative treatment. Psychological factors were associated with pain intensity at enrolment, but not with treatment choice. Operative treatment did not result in less pain intensity or disability, or higher satisfaction compared with non-operative treatment.
