Twelve flexor-tendon ruptures in ten non-rheumatoid patients seen over a sixteen year period were studied. Repair was indicated and performed in six, one by arthrodesis of the distal interphalangeal joint, and two by tenodesis (all three successful) and three by flexor tendon graft (two unsuccessful).
