Abstract
To restore function to the hand after tendon injury, primary tendon repair or delayed tendon grafting is recommended, and atrumatic surgical technique is essential. We report 73 cases of flexor tendon injuries of the hnd treated from January 1990 to December 1994 with a review of literature. The results are as follows: 1. In 36 cases received tenorrhaphy, Zone V was most common and over all end result was satisfactory in 88.9% by White and Kleinert criteria. 2. In 37 cases of tendon graft, Zone II was 30 cases and Zone III was 7 cases, and over all end result was satisfactory in 70.2% by White and Kleinert criteria. 3. The duration from injury to tendon graft have little relation to post-operative end result.
