Abstract

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the clinical outcome between the 2-Strand Modified Kessler repair and 4-Strand McLarney repair technique in adults following a Kleinert passive motion protocol. We repaired 54 flexor tendon lacerations in a duration of 6 months. We randomized and tendons were repaired with either 2-Strand or 4-Strand McLarney technique.The TAM(Total Active Motion) was calculated from post op 2 months to 6 months and scored by ASSH score. The tensile strength was measured using digital hand held dynamometer after 6 months. There was no rupture in either of the two groups. The statistical analysis was done. In conclusion, there is no statistical difference between two-strand( Modified Kessler) and four-strand(McLarney) techniques of flexor tendon repair following a Kleinert Passive Motion Protocol in terms of rupture, total active motion, grip strength and adhesion on in vivo testing.
