What Is It?
Trigger Finger Release is a surgical procedure that expands constricted tissue space, and encourages free movement within the fingers.
Trigger finger is a painful condition which causes the fingers to latch and lock in place when moved into a bent of flexed position. Strong, thick bands of tissue called tendons are located throughout each of your fingers, helping to connect muscles and bones within your hand. In the limited amount of space your finger has to offer, these tendons are organized within a sheath. Trigger finger occurs when one or more of these specific tendons become so inflamed and swollen that they can no longer glide easily through the sheath.
