Answer

In May 2014, the European HANDGUIDE Group published a guideline for multidisciplinary treatment of trigger finger. [38] By consensus, suitable treatment options were considered to include the following:

  • Orthoses (splinting)
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Corticosteroid injections plus use of orthoses
  • Surgery

Severity and duration of disease and prior treatments received were judged to be the primary factors influencing choice of therapy. [38]
