Abstract

This chapter details the steps in performing the extensor retinaculum capsulorrhaphy (the Herbert sling) procedure. A retinacular flap is created; the flap can be sutured to the periosteum of the distal radius or if radial periosteum is insufficient, suture anchors can be placed. The extensor retinaculum is imbricated in an oblique fashion from distal-ulnar to proximal-radial. Indications, essential steps, postoperative care, and sample operative dictation are included.
