Numerous surgical approaches have been described for treating patients suffering with stenosing tenosynovitis. The usual surgical descriptions differ mainly by the type of skin incision utilized. The goal of surgery is to completely release the A1 pulley, thereby allowing unimpeded motion of the flexor tendons. We describe a minimally invasive endoscopic technique to address this condition in the fingers.
