Sew how do you do? - 8/27/2012
What is the technique used on this patient and for what diagnosis?

Moderators Response:
When a patient sustains a laceration of the FDP and the distal stump is short or nonexistent, the tendon must be repaired to the distal phalanx. The suture is pulled through both the radial and ulnar aspects of the bone, exiting through the nail plate, and tied over the nail with a button.
