Evaluation of Suture Elongation of Flexor Tendons using the Pulvertaft Method: a Biomechanical Study using Cadaveric Specimens

SUMMARY Background. Determining flexor tendon tension in Pulvertaft methods is challenging. The tendons are sutured slightly tightly in anticipation of a postoperative decrease in flexor tendon tension, but it is not possible to predict by how much the tension will decrease. The purpose of this study is to determine the flexor tendon stretch length after … Continued
