Abstract

In the reconstruction of lacerated flexor tendons excellent and good results could be achieved in 51%.--The best results were obtained in zone 1, 3, 4 and 7 according to Verdan's classification. Depending on the operative technique of reconstruction the best results were obtained in reinsertion and primary suture of the tendons. In free tendon grafting the two-staged procedure gave better results than the modified Paneva-Holewich-technique and this was better than the classical tendon grafting in one operation.--Dissected flexor tendons are recommended to be reconstructed primarily according to Kleinert's principles. Some special operative techniques, suture materials, and new instruments are discussed.
