I had ucl repair of my right thumb and a1 pulley release of right thumb, but still have pain and popping, what could be possible cause?

Unfortunately: A "failed" repair is a possibility. You should, however, have another attempt at splinting, steroid injection, and Hand Therapy before undergoing a second surgery. Seek out a second opinion (from a Board Certified HAND surgeon)

How successful is an a-1 pulley release for trigger finger. My surgery is this month my middle & ring finger rt hand.

How successful is an a-1 pulley release for trigger finger. My surgery is this month my middle & ring finger rt hand.

Very successful in: That once the pulley is released the source fo the problem is typically gone. Of course there are factors that influence "success" such as return to motion, decreased scar sensitivity and avoiding complications. Issues such as arthritis, contracture, tenosynvitis and more severe preop status may need longer recovery but the surgery generally eliminates the source of the locking if that is indeed i. ...Read more
