[Correction of the Hansen claw hand using direct Zancolli lasso procedures and 2 of its variations].

[Article in French]


The procedure of the Zancolli "Lasso" or V direct Zancolli uses a flexor superficialis tendon which after a distal section is turned inside out and is fixed on itself after forming a loop around the proximal pulley of the sheath of the flexor. The mode of distal fixation being the same, the authors also study two different methods which resort either to one tendon for two, three or four fingers, or only to one strip of the flexor tendon for one finger. 45 cases of this kind of operation are reported. In the most important series in which the principle procedure has been used, the results are good in 80% of the mobile claws and average in 70% of the stiffened claws. The cases operated according to the two different methods, less numerous, give approximately the same results. The suggested indications are in favour of the changes in the procedure.
