The article discusses several evidence-based articles on hand surgery. The study by M. Chao, S. Wu, and T. Yan entitled " The effect of miniscalpel-needle versus steroid injection for trigger thumb release" showed 95% of the participants had successful miniscalpel treatment. The study "Dignosing suspected scaphoid fractures: a systematic review and meta-analysis," by S. L. Kan and colleagues, proved the high sensitivity of scanning and magnetic resonance imaging for scaphoid fracture exclusion.
