  19. 19. DIAGNOSTIC APPROACH Acct. To BOOK  Physical Examination reveals - Kanaval signs of flexor tendon sheath infection which are: (1) finger held in slight flexion, (2) fusiform swelling, (3) tenderness along the flexor tendon sheath (4) pain with passive extension of the digit. - Decrease Range of motion. - In particularly painful cases, the involved joint may exhibit weakness, - Affected area may show redness (erythema), edema, and warmth to the touch. 19
  20. 20. Contd…………  Laboratory Tests: Laboratory tests are not necessary for diagnosis. Tests for suspected infectious tenosynovitis may include: - Complete blood count (CBC) - Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) - Pus cultures. - In some cases, fluid may be withdrawn from a swollen joint for further diagnostic evaluation.  Radiology: - X-Ray are sometimes taken to rule out other pathology or to look for tendon calcifications. Although not usually necessary.  H/O Trauma, Injury 20

  22. 22. FINAL DIAGNOSIS On the basis of history, examination, clinical features & X-Ray finding Mr. Shanta Bdr Rana was diagnosed as Suppurative TenoSynovitis 22
  23. 23. SUPPURATIVE TENOSYNOVITIS  INTRODUCTION • Tenosynovitis refer to inflammation or infection of flexor tendon and synovial sheath. • It is a pathophysiologic state causing disruption of normal flexor tendon function in the hand. • It occurs most frequently in the hands and wrist but can occur in any joint. • Tenosynovitis develops when the inner (synovial) lining of the tendon sheath becomes injured or inflamed. • Pyogenic flexor tenosynovitis (FT) results from an infectious agent multiplying in the closed space of the flexor tendon sheath and culture-rich synovial fluid medium. 23
  24. 24. ANATOMY • The anatomic placement of tendons, their sheaths and the adjacent bursae has important implications for the clinical features of tenosynovitis (inflammation of a tendon sheath) • Extensor and flexor tendon sheaths have two surfaces: an inner visceral layer adherent to the tendon and an outer parietal layer abutting adjacent structures such as bursae and muscles. • The visceral and parietal layers of most tendons are tightly joined at the ends to produce a closed compartment encased in a tendon sheath. • Infectious tenosynovitis involving the flexor tendons on the dorsum of the hand can spread via bursae to the volar surface of the hand • Infectious tenosynovitis involving the tendon sheaths of the wrist can spread to adjacent bursae and tendon sheaths surrounding the ulna and radius 24
  25. 25. Contd………… 25 Flexor tendon sheaths and radial and ulnar bursae
  26. 26. Contd………..  Epidemiology -An estimated 64-95% of patients with rheumatoid arthritis develop hand or wrist FT. -One third of hand and finger FT cases are associated with diabetes mellitus.  Recent Studies: - According to Eshed et al , flexor tenosynovitis which is diagnosed by MRI is strongly predictor of early rheumatic arthritis. - According to Kameyama et al, limited joint mobility in patient with DM is closely related to stenosing flexor tenosynovitis. - His studies also shows that diabetic patient have significant prevalence of multiple digit involved in flexor tenosynovitis. - According to Dailiana et al retrospective study among 41 patient with purulent tenosynovitis, found the best functional outcomes with early diagnosis and treatment with I & D. - Worse outcomes resulted in case of delayed treatment and infection with septic pathogen(Staphylococcus). 26
  27. 27. BACTERIAL ETIOLOGY S.N ACCT. to INTERNET EVIDENCE IN MY PATIENT Remark 1 Neisseria gonorrhea Not Present 2 Staphylococcus 3 Streptococcus 4 Pasteurella multocida (cat bites), 5 Eikenella corrodens (human bites) 27

  29. 29. PATHOPHYSIOLOGY Trauma, DM , Infection cause Risk for growth of microbes in Between the space of Parietal & Visceral layer of Tendon lead to Increased Synovial fluid & Development of Microbes As a result Compromise of surrounding Blood Vessels & Nerve( Median nerve) Lead to Tissues, Bone & Tendon necrotized result to Inflammation of Flexor tendon & Synovial Sheath Present with Pus Formation, Swelling, Crepitus Sound, Decreased ROM, reddened, Increased local Temperature 29
  30. 30. CLINICAL FEATURES S.N ACC. To INTERNET EVIDENCE IN PATIENT REMARK 1 Insedious swelling of dorsum part of limb Sudden swelling of dorsum part of lt hand at volar surface 2 Pain, Tenderness, Rednened at the affected part Present 3 Restricted movement of finger Present 4 Finger held in slight flexion Present 5 Finger is Uniform swelling Present 6 Tenderness along the flexor tendon sheath, Present at thumb n middle finger 7 pain with passive extension of the digit. Pain at thumb & wrist joint at extension 8 Pus with Fever No Fever but pus was present 9 Decreased ROM of wrist joint present 30
  31. 31. TREATMENT ACC. TO INTERNET EVIDENCE Non Surgical Approach: • Individuals are often advised to wear a splint temporarily to avoid recurrence. • Nonsurgical (conservative) treatment for tenosynovitis may utilize Ultrasound Iontophoresis, and electrical stimulation. • Apply heat or ice for local pain control and to reduce swelling and inflammation. • Oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be prescribed to control mild to moderate pain. • In some cases, injection of lidocaine or a corticosteroid may be helpful. Surgical Approach: • Release of tendon sheath • I& D 31
  32. 32. TREATMENT DONE IN PATIENT Non Surgical Approach: Date: 2069/06/14 • Cap metformin 1000mgx pox OD • Tab Glimepiride 1ng x OD morning time • Tab Ramipril 2.5 mg x HS • Inj. Flucloxacillin 500mg xIV x QID • Inj. Ketral 1amp x IV x BD • Inj. Aciloc 50mg X IV x BD 32
  33. 33. ASSESSMENT & INVESTIGATION DONE IN PATIENT BEFORE SURGICAL APPROACH Date: 2069/06/16 • Blood Sugar: - Fasting:100mg/dl - PP:170mg/dl - Random:125mg/dl ( Normal-80-140mg/dl) ASSESSMENT 33 S.N PARAMETER AFFECTED LT.

  34. 34. Contd…….. Surgical Approach: Date: 2069/06/18 • Surgical approach done after 4 days due to decrease inflammation. • I & D was done to my patient under IVA( Intravenous Anesthesia). • 10 ml pus was drained. • They continue same medicine for more 4 days. • Tissue sample was sent for Histopathology test in lab. 34
  35. 35. Contd………… Date:2069/06/19 • All the injectable medicines were changed into the oral form. - Tab Fluclox 500mg x PO x QID - Tab Nims 100mg x PO x BD - Cap Omez 20mg x PO x BD - Tab T.T Dox 100mg x PO x OD - Tab Azithro 500mg x PO x OD 35
  36. 36. NURSING INTERVENTION DONE DURING HOSPITAL STAY  Vital sign was monitored as ward policy.  Medication was given as ortho surgeon & physician ordered.  Dressing of the wound was done in alternate day with betadine & normal saline under aseptic technique.  Diabetic diet was advised to patient for intake.  Advised for daily exercise and education for the digitorium & foot care.  Psychological support was given to the patient by informing him about the disease condition and its treatment and prognosis.  IV site care was done daily with sprit swab and changing of adhesive tape.  IV site swelling part was care with sprit bandaging.  Pre & Post operative care was done. 36
  37. 37. DISCHARGE OF PATIENT ASSESSMENT Date: 2069/06/22 37 S.NO PARAMETERS FINDING 1 Inflammation(Pain, Tender , Redness, Local temperature) Absent 2 ROM, Movement of digit Well, Normal 3 Swelling Decreased 4 Wound Dry, No pus, Granulation tissue present
  38. 38. Contd………… ASSESSMENT Date: 2069/06/22 Mr Shanta Bdr. Rana was discharged on 2069/06/22 under following medicines and advised for follow up to the ortho OPD after 2 weeks with Histopathology report. • Tab Fluclox 500mg x PO x QID for 7 days • Tab flexion 1 tab x TDS for 3 days 38
  39. 39. DISCHARGE TEACHING TO THE PATIENT & FAMILY  Patient and Family was informed about the prognosis of disease.  Advised for alternate wound dressing in near health centre.  Advised patient to maintain good personal hygiene.  Advised patient for the timely medicine intake for full course as ordered.  Asked patient to perform daily exercise.  patient was educated for foot care and diabetic diet.  Asked patient and family to attain ortho OPD after 2weeks with histopathology report.  Patient and family was informed about the hypoglycemic features and management. 39
  40. 40. PROGNOSIS According to Internet evidence- • If treatment is delayed after diagnosis for long time, outcomes will be worse. • Presence of septic pathogens(Staphylococcus aureus) result worse outcome. Prognosis in my Patient: • Treatment started immediately after diagnosis. • No presence of any septic pathogens. As above evidence chance of prognosis is good for recovery from Infective tenosynovitis. 40
  41. 41. COMPLICATION Complications of Suppurative Tenosynovitis include: • Chronic pain of affected part. • Permanent decreased of ROM. • Rupture of Tendon • Septic Arthritis • Osteomyelitis • Amputation 41
