Abstract Forty-three trigger thumbs and fingers in 33 children (15 boys and 18 girls, average age 2 years and 4 months) were treated using a polyethylene splint. Affected digits included 40 thumbs, one index finger, and two middle fingers. The IP joint was stabilized in maximum extension via a strap on the dorsal side. The splint was applied only at night and during day-time naps. Twenty-four digits recovered completely in an average of 10 months, seven digits improved, and two digits required surgery. Eight patients (10 digits) dropped out of treatment. Splint therapy is effective in treating trigger thumbs and fingers in children.
