Forty-five patients had primary repair of the tendon under general anaesthesia with tourniquet. Kessler’s technique was used and preoperative antibiotic was given. Fingers were mobilized early with full physiotherapy after two weeks. The complications seen were wound infection, skin necrosis, joint stiffness and tendon rupture. We recommend primary repair of tendon injuries of hand with Kessler’s technique.
