Figure 3 (A and B): Peritendinous injections for release of trigger finger: (A) Trigger finger is caused by a tenosynovitis of the digital flexor tendons and presents with snapping fingers. Peritendinous steroid injections provide rapid symptomatic relief by reducing the inflammation. USG guidance, especially in smaller joints, aids and confirms an accurate delivery of the injectate into the area of interest (B) Peritendinous fluid distension confirms delivery of injectate which can be visualized real time with USG
