Abstract

Case: While working in a factory, a thirty-five-year-old man injured his right forearm and was then diagnosed with acute compartment syndrome. Ruptures of the flexor and extensor tendons were revealed via single volar and dorsal incisions. End-to-side transfer with use of the remaining extensor tendons was performed; the end of the extensor indicis proprius tendon was sutured to the side of the extensor digitorum communis tendon of the middle finger, and the extensor pollicis longus tendon was sutured to the extensor pollicis brevis tendon. Conclusion: In cases of high-energy injuries, associated tendon rupture should be considered.
