Cengiz Aldemir; Fatih Duygun.

Abstract
Our aim in this study was to determine the frequency of Trigger finger, De quervain tenosynovitis and Dupuytren contracture in patients who underwent Idiopathic carpal tunnel release. The frequencies of trigger finger (TF), De Quervain tenosynovitis (DQ), and Dupuytren contracture (DC) on the same or contralateral extremity were evaluated in 430 patients who underwent surgery with a diagnosis for idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome (ICTS) from January 2008 to August 2017. The mean age of patients was 54.6 (range, 40-68), and 348 were female while 82 were male. We identified 42 cases with TF (9.76%), 7 cases with DQ (1.62%), and 10 cases with DC (2.32%). We believe that our data could provide insight for the evaluation of the Turkish population.

Key words: Idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome;De Quervain tenosynovitis;trigger finger;Dupuytren contracture
