This is a retrospective descriptive research study, the objective of which was to evaluate the results of trigger finger treatment by percutaneous approach using applied dental equipment. The study population included 29 patients with trigger finger (females
with a mean age of 52 years) on whom 35 digits were treated by percutaneous operation
at Samchuk Hospital, Suphan Buri Province. The statistical analysis gave frequency, percentage, mean, median and range. The results of the study revealed that the mean operation time was 14 minutes; only
12 patients (34.3%) kept their appointment for seven days of postoperative follow-up.
The mean home visit period for every patient was 13 months. On the seven-day followups, every patient could move her fingers normally and only two patients sensed pain.
On home visits 34 of the 35 fingers (90.14%) moved normally; four patients had a sensory
loss but without pain or scars. The majority of patients (74.28%) could move their fingers
normally within 10 days of the operation. The mean sastisfaction score was 9.69 out of 10.
All patients were willing to recommend other trigger finger patients to come for treatment at Samchuk Hospital. The author concluded that the treatment by percutaneous
technique with applied dental equipment is effective in releasing trigger fingers without
additional medical treatment; this technique involved fewer complications, no scar formation, a short recovery period, no recurrent symptoms, and produced good patient compliance and faith.
