The 2 black arrows point to the raised
cord-like structure beneath the skin at the
wrist. This cord represents the tendons that
are inflamed in deQuervain's tenosynovitis.
This drawing shows the actual tendons
(marked by the black arrow) that are inflamed
in deQuervain's tenosynovitis. The band-like
structure marked by the dashed black line
pinches the tendons as they slide back and
forth beneath it. This band-like structure is
cut during surgery to release the constriction
around the inflamed tendons.
