dc.description.abstractPurpose: To investigate the association between diabetes mellitus and risk of infection after trigger finger release. Methods: Reports of adult trigger finger patients who had undergone trigger finger release that included details of patient diabetic status and post-surgery infections were included in the study. Reports of congenital trigger finger release and incomplete data on either diabetic status or infection after surgery were excluded. Search engines were PubMed, Scopus, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, and Web of Science from inception to third December 2021. The risk of infection after trigger finger release was compared between diabetic and non-diabetic patients by evaluating the pooled risk ratio (RR) with a 95% confident interval (CI) under random effects modeling. Risk of bias in each study was assessed using Newcastle–Ottawa Scale (NOS). Results: A total of 213,071 trigger finger patients described in seven studies were identified. Overall, patients with diabetes mellitus had a 65% higher risk of infection after trigger finger release compared to non-diabetic patients (RR 1.65; 95% CI, 1.39–1.95). Diabetes mellitus increased the risk of infection following trigger finger surgery in both young and old age groups as well as obese and non-obese patients who underwent open release surgery. The risk of bias in each of the included studies was estimated as moderate to high. Conclusion: Meta-analysis results demonstrated that diabetes mellitus increases the risk of infection after trigger finger release. Glycemic control and percutaneous rather than open surgery might be strategies to the reduce risk of infection after trigger finger release in diabetic patients.en_US
