Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To summarize the surgical approaches and efficacies of flexion deformity caused by antebrachium muscle hemangioma.

METHODS:

Retrospective analysis was performed in 41 cases of flexion deformity caused by antebrachium muscle cavernous hemangioma. There were 16 males and 25 females with an age range of 14 - 56 years old. Twenty-nine cases were surgically treated once and 12 re-operated. Hemangioma resection and Z-shaped tendon lengthening was adopted to cure antebrachium muscle hemangioma. During the follow-ups, the operative success rate and flexible extents of forearm, wrist and finger were evaluated.

RESULTS:

Complete resection was performed in 37 cases and partial resection in 4. All patients underwent Z-shaped tendon lengthening. The operative success rate was 90% during a follow-up period of 6 - 12 months. After treatment, the pains disappeared and bend function recovered. Four cases had little improvement in movement range.

CONCLUSION:

The procedure of hemangioma resection and Z-shaped tendon lengthening should be performed as early as possible for hemangioma caused by antebrachium muscle cavernous hemangioma. And physical training is helpful for function reconstruction.
