Complete rupture of A2 pulley 30-May-2011 At 12:17:58 PM climbingjac
Right well here is the update. Specialist has now seen the finalised ultrasound report which says complete rupture of A2 pulley, so no surprises there. Surgeons in a recent conference on this very topic have formally announced they no longer think it appropriate to operate on a ruptured A2 (unless other pulleys are also ruptured) since the outcome would be no different. The concern is by initiating surgery at this stage (when the area is already traumatized) would introuce more scar tissue which may not form in a desirable manner. The approach being taken in my case is splint for a week to help swelling etc settle down and then commence therapy. Reconstructive surgery of the pulley can be done later on if necessary (ie if the finger doesn't heal well enough by itself). Will add a pic of the said splint in a sec.
