AbstractWe report a prospective study of dynamic splintage following extensor tendon repair. Eighty-four patients with 101 extensor tendon injuries were studied. Using Dargan's evaluation system, there were 97% excellent results for the thumb and 93% excellent and good results for the fingers. The average total active motions were 107° for thumbs and 245° for fingers. Over 80% of patients regained good power grip. Patients with associated digital fractures or with ragged lacerations had poorer results. Overall, we found that dynamic splintage was a satisfactory method after extensor repair. © 1997 The British Society for Surgery of the Hand.
