Abstract

This chapter describes in detail the surgical steps for performing an incision, drainage and irrigation for suppurative flexor tenosynovitis. The operative note has been generalized so that it can be applied to various digits of the hand with appropriate modifications. The approach should allow for incision and drainage of the affected digit as well as placement of an apparatus amenable for postoperative irrigation of the tendon sheath. Indications, surgical steps, postoperative care, an operative dictation template, and suggested readings/references are included.
