I just returned from the American Society for Surgery of the Hand Meeting that was held in Toronto. Unfortunately, it was probably the least informative, lowest-value meeting of that society that I have ever attended. Nevertheless, one product that has been released that was being demonstrated there will prove to be a real improvement in the repair of tendon injuries of the hand.
It is CONEXTIONS™ Tendon Repair System. This little device will help cut time and make tendon repairs in the palm and lower portion of fingers radically easier and more secure than a standard suture. I definitely need to make sure that my hospital has this available for use.
