Flexor Tendon Injuries

Hand and Wrist

Flexor tendon injuries result in the inability to bend the joint associated with that tendon. It is best for hand surgeons to repair the tendons within 7 days of injury. The most common type of flexor tendon injury results from a laceration or cut with a sharp object or tool such as a knife or saw. Flexor tendons can also rupture or tear because of a strong force or rubbing on the tendon that causes it to become thin and weak over time.
