We report three cases of complete rupture of the flexor pollicis longus (FPL) tendon, one case of complete rupture of the index and middle finger flexor digitorum profundus tendons and one case of rupture of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon to the index finger after placement of a volar plate for distal radius fracture. We review the literature and discuss the aetiology of tendon ruptures and techniques to prevent tendon attition.
