Comparison of mechanical aspects of different treatment methods of human finger tendon contractures
Kult J., Jírová J.
pages 182 - +4p., full text

The article reports on an analysis of conservative treatment methods of finger flexor contractures (splinting and external fixation). The treatment simulation is based on numerical Finite Element Method. The stress states of bones and soft tissues are evaluated and compared for different values of the flexion angle. Suggestions for optimal treatment progress are derived from the stress state analysis.
