- 1.Two comparable cases of grease-gun injuries are described, the first treated conservatively and the other by immediate surgery.
- 2.The long inactivity arising from an apparently trivial injury is stressed.
- 3.A bayonet incision was found to give an adequate exposure without the formation of a “bow string scar”.
- 4.On removing only I c.c. of grease there was a marked reduction in the tenseness of the finger, with immediate restoration of full passive movements of the interphalangeal joints.
