Stenosing ligamentitis

Stenosing ligamentitis surgery and other hand surgery can be done through a state-funded program. The cost of the surgery does not exceed 40 euros!

Stenosing ligamentitis, or inflammation of the tendons of the wrist, is also popularly known as “trigger finger”. The main symptoms of stenosing ligamentitis are finger pain, moving thickening over the tendons at the base of the finger, and difficulty flexing and extending the fingers. Symptoms are usually more pronounced in the morning, just after waking up. It most commonly affects the fourth, fifth and middle fingers, and mostly occurs in people who work for long periods of time, performing monotonous, heavy work.


It is very important to see a doctor early if you notice the first symptoms of stenosing ligamentitis. If detected early enough, the disease is quite easily treated with anti-inflammatory drugs. But once it becomes a lingering disease, it will not be sufficient. In this case, surgical intervention is needed to treat stenosing ligamentitis.

The surgery process is not complicated. During surgery to treat stenosing ligamentitis, a small incision is made in the skin of the hand to widen the tunnel for the tendon to slip through. The surgery time is usually less than 30 minutes.

After the surgery

Post-operative wounds take on average 2 weeks to heal. After surgery, the patient may need an additional rehabilitation period, which includes medical supervision. It is important to remember that stenosing ligamentitis is a disease that should definitely be treated early. The earlier you go to the doctor, the easier the post-operative period will be.
