Individuals with de Quervain disease often report a gradual onset of pain or tenderness at the radial styloid that may be accompanied by swelling. The objectives of study was to evaluate efficacy of topical glycerin etamsylate solution applied twice a day in five male patients (pain VAS = 7.20/10) suffering from de Quervain tenosynovitis. We found that this treatment leads to significant pain reduction (VAS = 1.60/10, p < 0.001) and functional improvement after two weeks of therapy. Citation:
