Objectives: The objective was to determine the results of early active controlled motion in the patients rehabilitated by our new protocol. Methods: 91 fingers in 64 patients with flexor tendon
repair in all zones were enrolled in a single group [quasi-experimental] clinical trial.58 fingers in 43 patients were assessed at least three months postoperatively. Outcomes were defined using the ‘White' criteria for thumbs and the ‘Strickland' criteria for other fingers.
Results: The results for range of motion of fingers were Excellent in 70.7%, good in 13.8%, fair in 6.9% and poor in 8.6%. There were 3 [5.17%] postoperative tendon ruptures.
