Fowler central slip tenotomy for old mallet deformity.

Abstract

Fowler's central slip tenotomy for old mallet deformity is a well-known, but apparently seldom used procedure. Although the vast majority of patients with mallet finger can be successfully treated by well-known conservative techniques, occasional patients, such as the 11 reported here, will have enough difficulty with a chronic mallet finger to warrant rebalancing of the extensor apparatus by means of central slip tenotomy.
