What is a boutonnière deformity?

Tendons are rope like structures that connect muscles to bone. Many of the muscles that move the fingers and thumb are in the forearm. The tendons of these muscles cross the wrist and attach to the bones of the hand. Several tendons work together to straighten each finger. These tendons run along the side and top of the finger.
