Video 1 features a repaired flexor tendon. It should exhibit uninhibited glide within the fibroosseous canal. A wide awake patient can gently flex the digits while the surgeon has direct visualization of the repair as the tendon glides under the pulley system. Similarly, full flexion can be tested in a sedated or anesthetized patient by forearm compression. This test confirms repair integrity and excursion. From the MOC article, “Evidence-Based Medicine – Flexor tendon repair”, May 2014. Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
In the first video from Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery's “Women in Plastic Surgery” series, American Society of Plastic Surgeon's "Women Plastic Surgeons" group members share what it's like to go through pregnancy while in plastic surgery residency.
