“Volunteer for research and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!”
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
The aim of the study is to determine whether or not extra-sheath steroid injections are inferior to intra-sheath steroid injections in the treatment of DeQuervain's Tenosynovitis. Patients will be randomized to either the intra-sheath group or the extra-sheath group and their pre-injection level of pain will be assessed using the visual analog scale. Appropriate injections will then be administered by 1 of 3 UC Davis hand surgeons. Six weeks post injection the patients will be reassessed using the visual analog scale and their score at 6 weeks will be compared to their pre-injection score.
