T Nakamura, K Abe, M Nishiwaki, T Iwamoto, K Sato
: We examined the medium- to long-term outcome of the original reconstruction technique of the radioulnar ligament using a half-slip of the extensor carpi ulnaris tendon for chronic foveal avulsion of the triangular fibrocartilage complex. We treated 37 wrists in 36 patients with a minimum follow-up of 5 years. Of 36 patients, 12 had more than 10 years follow-up. At final follow-up, 30 patients (31 wrists) reported no pain, five patients (five wrists) reported mild occasional pain and one patient reported severe persistent pain...

: We analysed scaphoid deformity as a result of surgical treatment of scaphoid fracture nonunion and assessed the deformity associated with a dorsal intercalated segmental instability pattern of carpal malalignment. A total of 45 patients who were treated for scaphoid fracture nonunion were included in the study. The height-to-length ratio of the scaphoid was measured on computed tomographic images and used to assess scaphoid deformity. Carpal malalignment was quantified based on the radio-lunate angle...

: We have used laser Doppler imaging to monitor the microcirculation of replanted digits during the post-operative period in 103 patients who underwent either replantation after traumatic amputation or toe-to-finger reconstruction. The blood flow (perfusion unit) in each revascularized digit was compared with that of an unaffected digit. The perfusion index was defined as the perfusion value of a revascularized digit divided by the perfusion value of the neighbouring normal digit. The ideal threshold value of the perfusion index (0...

K W S J Huan, J S W Tan, S H Tan, L C Teoh, F C Yong
: In upper (C5-C7) and total (C5-T1) root avulsion brachial plexus injury, a method of double neurotization from a single donor spinal accessory nerve to two target nerves (suprascapular nerve and axillary nerve) may be done, leaving donor nerves available for reconstruction procedures to restore other aspects of upper limb function. A mean range of shoulder abduction of 91° (SD 25°) was achieved through this procedure in our study of 13 cases, of which seven cases were C5-C7 root avulsion and six cases were C5-T1 root avulsion brachial plexus injuries...

T Suzuki, Y Sato, S Sotome, H Arai, A Arai, H Yoshida
: This study was designed to investigate the reliability and validity of measurements of finger diameters with a ring gauge. A reliability study enrolled two independent samples (50 participants and seven examiners in Study I; 26 participants and 26 examiners in Study II). The sizes of each participant's little fingers were measured twice with a ring gauge by each examiner. To investigate the validity of the measurements, five hand therapists compared the finger size and hand volume of 30 participants with the ring gauge and with a figure-of-eight technique (Study III)...

: This prospective cohort study investigated the responsiveness and interpretability of the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) and Unité Rhumatologique des Affections de la Main (URAM) outcome measures for assessing recovery after fasciectomy and dermofasciectomy for Dupuytren's disease. DASH outcome scores at 1 year were significantly better than at 6 weeks, suggesting that recovery is not complete by 6 weeks. Of the 101 patients recruited to the DASH cohort, 71 completed preoperative, 6 week and 1 year postoperative DASH scores; 68 of them completed preoperative and 1 year postoperative DASH scores and an external anchor question...

G Medlock, J M Wohlgemut, I M Stevenson, A J Johnstone
: Reformatted magnetic resonance imaging scans of 27 normal wrists were examined in incremental degrees of rotation around the central axis of the radial shaft to 30° in both directions from true lateral. A line was superimposed on the outer border of the radial dorsal cortex and continued distally to the carpal region. Measurements were made from the superior pole of the lunate to this line. This distance did not change significantly with rotation. This allows a quick and accurate way of assessing distal radial fracture reduction from poorly taken lateral radiographs...

The objective of this study was to determine the precise departure points of the articular branches innervating the distal radio-ulnar joint from the anterior and posterior interosseous nerves. The study sample consisted of 116 upper limbs from adult human cadavers. The articular branches were prepared under the dissection microscope to take measurements using the radial styloid process as point of reference. The articular branch departed from the anterior interosseous nerve at a mean distance of 2.9 cm proximal to the styloid for a radius length of 20...

N Hidaka, T Uemura, H Nakamura
: Congenital hypoplasia of the extensor tendon central slip is a rare entity. This article describes the clinical characteristics in a series of 22 fingers in 16 patients (mean age: 10 months), and the outcomes of conservative treatment. Nine of 22 fingers were classified as slender or hypoplastic. Treatment with bracing was successful in 21 digits, resulting in full active extension of the proximal interphalangeal joint at a mean of 8.5 months after treatment. Bracing was unsuccessful in one digit, in which operative treatment resulted in a successful outcome...

S M Koehler, C P Melone
: The purpose of this study was to determine the functional, radiographic, and subjective outcome of the authors' technique of four-corner arthrodesis using the en bloc excised scaphoid as the principal donor bone graft coupled with Kirschner wire fixation. The study comprised 40 consecutive patients with progressive Stage II and III scapholunate advanced collapse or scaphoid nonunion advanced collapse deformities. Preoperative and postoperative range of motion, grip strength, carpal height, and Michigan Hand Outcomes Questionnaire responses were assessed with a mean follow-up of 4...

: The purpose of this study was to measure the volar cortical angles of the commercially available volar locking plates and evaluate how well they fit the distal radius. We measured the volar cortical angles of the radial and intermediate columns of eight volar locking plates and compared them with the volar cortical angles of 90 cadaver distal radii. The mean radial and intermediate column volar cortical angles of the wider plates were significantly larger than those of narrower plates...

: We report a nerve graft procedure bridging the thenar branch of the median nerve to the ulnar nerve in three patients with ulnar nerve transection and defect at the mid-forearm. Ulnar nerve function was evaluated with electroneurography and quantitative sensory-motor testing before and after surgery, and at a 6-year follow-up. After surgery all patients showed electroneurographic evidence of median nerve innervation of the intrinsic muscles normally innervated by the ulnar nerve. The average strength was Grade 4 in the intrinsic muscles originally supplied by the ulnar nerve at the final follow-up...

: From 2001 to 2015, 11 wrists in 11 patients with osteoarthritis of the wrist had failed wrist arthroplasties, which were subsequently converted to arthrodesis using intercalated corticocancellous autograft from the iliac crest and fixation with an arthrodesis plate or a customized peg. Clinical and radiological bone union was achieved in all the operated wrists. At final follow-up of ten patients after 6 years, they had a substantial reduction in pain and improvement in daily function and grip strength compared with those before arthrodesis...

A Hameso, J D P Bland
: Repeated local corticosteroid injections have become a common mode of treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome, despite an existing recommendation that no more than three injections should be given. We studied the clinical outcomes in 254 patients who initially opted for a corticosteroid injection into their carpal canal during 2007. Follow-up records of treatment were obtained for 157 patients of whom 41% had proceeded to surgery by 2015. A mean of 1.9 injections had been given before surgery...

: The primary aim of this study was to assess the clinical and radiological results after hemi-hamate resurfacing arthroplasty in patients with acute or chronic unstable fractures of the base of the middle phalanx and to describe technical features that can facilitate the surgical procedure. Hemi-hamate arthroplasties were done in 19 patients (mean age 39 years) with an isolated fracture at the base of the middle phalanx that involved more than 40% of the articular surface. We assessed ten chronic cases (treated >6 weeks after fracture) and nine acute ones (<6 weeks) at a mean of 24 months...
