However, an early recurrence at the PIP Joint contracture
can be reversed by using a dynamic extension splint.
In contrast to our findings, however, a few studies confirmed the effectiveness of static progressive orthoses for shoulder and metacarpophalangeal joint contracture
recently [14, 32].
For this patient, in addition to preoperative splinting, they will require operative intervention with thumb extensor reconstructions and varying degrees of MP joint contracture
releases, first webspace deepening and soft tissue reconstructions, and opposition transfers.

of his neck, elbows, and ankles, with notable asymmetry at the ankles.
The IP joint contracture
also caused him to be upset because he could not play the "thumbs up" game with his classmates at school.

due to the initial surgery (Fig.
From this, the researchers tracked neurologic symptoms such as seizures, migraine headaches, other headaches, or any other neurologic signs or symptoms; neurologic testing results from those who underwent MRI, CT, and EEG; musculoskeletal symptoms such as arthritis, arthralgias, joint contracture
, leg length discrepancy, and other musculoskeletal issues, as well as ophthalmologic manifestations including uveitis and other ophthalmologic symptoms.
Further reference suggested superiority of plantar approach compared to dorsal approach which carried the morbidity such as hammer toe deformity, metatarsophalangeal joint contracture
, transverse plane MIJ deformities, hematoma, and vascular insults to digits.
