Trigger finger release is surgery on a finger or thumb that has been stuck in an unnatural or curled position. The reason for the surgical release is to relieve pain and improve the flexibility of the tendons.
Stenosing tenosynovitis, also known as trigger finger, is the medical term for the disorder that causes a finger to lock in place. The name is derived from the sound a finger makes when it becomes locked. The most common fingers affected by this disorder are the thumb and the ring finger of the dominant hand.
