Mucous Cyst Excision

These are examples of a technique for mucous cyst excision using a longitudinal eponychial splitting incision which I learned from Damien Ireland.
  • The cyst itself is left undisturbed
  • Dorsal-lateral flap elevation superficial to extensor mechanism
  • Excision of the dorsal-ulnar and dorsal-radial sections of the joint capsule and underlying osteophytes
  • 2mm Kerrison punch for dorsal synovectomy and debridement of mid-dorsal distal phalanx osteophytes
  • Closure with deep eponychial surface suture and then simple running suture.
