After repair of flexor tendon injury in zone II of the hand, does active mobilization give a better result than current treatment with passive flexion and active hold, according to the method of Silfverskiöld/May, or any other method with passive flexion, regarding risk of rupture and range of movement?
Mobilization with early active flexion after repair of flexure tendon injuries in zone II of the hand does not seem to increase risk of rupture but results in a larger range of motioncompared to methods with passive flexion. A direct comparison between active flexion and passive flexion with active hold according to Silfverskiöld/May is not available.
