Abstract

In this article, a group of international leaders in tendon surgery of the hand provide details of their current methods of primary flexor tendon repair. They are from recognized hand centers around the world, from which major contributions to the development of methods for flexor tendon repair have come over the past 2 decades. Changes made since the early 1990s regarding surgical methods and postoperative care for the flexor tendon repair are also discussed. Current practice methods used in the leading hand centers are summarized, and key points in providing the best possible clinical outcomes are outlined.
