Our systematic review presented at IFSSH-IFSHT meeting in Berlin

Study compared published evidence on conservative and operative management of the finger flexion contractures, a common and treatable joint deformity.

Very privileged to have had the opportunity to present our systematic review on the management of proximal interphalangeal joint (PIPJ) stiffness at the Joint IFSSH & IFSHT Congress in Berlin. A big thank you to Ms Caroline B Hing and Ms Sonja Cerovac for supervising me throughout this project. Next we hope to use current evidence as a base for prospective studies in managing the difficult problem of finger flexion deformities after Phalangeal Fractures and Dupuytren’s Contracture as well as Flexor Tendon Injuries.
