Abstract

Arthroscopy is an accepted technique for the resection of wrist ganglions. The reported complication rate is comparable with open resection at 2%; however, this rate may be underestimated. Most reported complications are relatively benign and self-limited. In this case report, we detail lacerations of multiple digital extensor tendons from arthroscopic resection of a dorsal ganglion and describe our management of this complication.
