Timely identification of patients' problems after disorder or injury of the hand requires a thorough functional assessment. However, the variety of outcome measures available makes it difficult to choose the appropriate instrument. The brief International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (Brief ICF Core Set for Hand Conditions) provides a standard for what aspects need to be measured in hand injuries and disorders without specifying how to make the assessment. We developed the ICF-based Assessment Hand (ICF HandA), an assessment set for functioning based on the Brief ICF Core Set for Hand Conditions...

This review includes updated understanding of the roles of intrinsic and extrinsic carpal ligaments in scapholunate instability and details the author's experience of indications, arthroscopic repair methods, and outcomes of treating the instability. A classification on triangular fibrocartilage complex injuries is reviewed, followed by author's indications, methods, and outcomes of arthroscopic repair of triangular fibrocartilage complex injuries.

We report clinical outcomes in 12 patients with hemi-hamate replacement arthroplasty combined with volar plate arthroplasty. The volar plate was reattached using trans-osseous sutures to reconstruct the ligament-box complex after hamate grafting to augment the stability of the proximal interphalangeal joint. Ten patients had improved joint movement from a mean of 14° before surgery to a mean of 77° at a minimum follow-up of 2 years. Grip strength and pain of the affected hand and patient-rated hand and wrist scores were improved in these 10 patients...

Boutonnière deformity of the thumb without rheumatoid arthritis or trauma is not widely recognised. This study aimed to investigate its prevalence, relation to sex and age, and identifying factors associated with the extensor mechanism using ultrasonography. We examined 248 thumbs from 127 participants who were asymptomatic for hand disorders and had no history of hand injury. Boutonnière deformity was identified in 20 thumbs of 17 participants and was significantly more prevalent among elderly participants than among young participants...

We report a case series of aggressive fibromatosis of the forearm and discuss the differentiation criteria of overlapped intra- or extra-osseous origin of aggressive fibromatosis, surgical approach, and outcome. Ten cases of aggressive fibromatosis of the forearm were evaluated. When there was no involvement of vital adjacent structures, such as nerves, vessels, and tendons, en-bloc excision was performed for the removal of the soft-tissue mass. Bone involvement was observed in nine cases. Intercalary allograft was performed whenever one of the forearm bones was involved (six cases), while extensive curettage was used if both forearm bones were affected (three cases)...

The use of local anaesthesia and adrenaline for hand surgery is gaining popularity; however, where vascularity is impaired, wide-awake surgery is considered a contraindication. We present our case series of five digital devascularizations and eight amputations that underwent surgery using the 'wide-awake' anaesthetic technique. A temporary digital tourniquet (< 20 min) was used in three cases to identify structures quickly. The anastomoses were performed under local anaesthesia without a tourniquet. All cases had successful re-establishment of blood flow with good perfusion to the digital tips; no cases were re-explored because of vascular crisis...

The purpose of this study was to assess sensory and functional nerve recovery after digital nerve injury in patients with an end-to-end suture (S) or with implantation of a collagen conduit (C) to bridge a nerve gap. Fifteen S and 11 C with a follow-up of 6-36 months and 28 healthy control participants were enrolled. Methods of assessments were quantitative sensory testing, the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand questionnaire (DASH), range of motion and the painDetect questionnaire. After both procedures, sensory profiles showed largely recovered function of C and Aδ fibres but severe loss of Aβ-fibre function leading to increased mechanical detection thresholds...

We compared outcomes of primary vascularized ulnar nerve grafts from the C5 root neurotizing biceps and brachialis muscles, and gracilis functioning free muscle transfer neurotized by the distal spinal accessory nerve, as a primary or salvage procedure after complete brachial plexus injury. At 45 months, three of eight primary vascularized ulnar nerve graft patients regained grade 4 elbow flexion, while one regained grade 3. All 13 primary gracilis transfer patients regained grade 4 elbow flexion. Four patients with vascularized ulnar nerve grafts failed and subsequently had salvage functioning free muscle transfer procedures resulting in delayed recovery...

We investigated the effect of an interfragmentary gap on the final compression force using the Acutrak 2 Mini headless compression screw (length 26 mm) (Acumed, Hillsboro, OR, USA). Two blocks of solid rigid polyurethane foam in a custom jig were separated by spacers of varying thickness (1.0, 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 mm) to simulate an interfragmentary gap. The spacers were removed before full insertion of the screw and the compression force was measured when the screw was buried 2 mm below the surface of the upper block...

Radiotherapy has been advocated as an alternative treatment in early Dupuytren's disease. We have systematically reviewed the evidence on the use of radiotherapy in Dupuytren's disease. Only six articles met a minimum set standard, five of which were retrospective cohort studies and one a randomized controlled study. A total of 770 Dupuytren's hands, nearly all with Tubiana stage 0-1 disease, were irradiated with an average 30 Gy. Disease regression ranged from 0%-56%, stability from 14%-98% and progression from 2%-86%...

We conducted a prospective randomized, multicentre study to compare short arm and long arm plaster casts for the treatment of stable distal radius fracture in patients older than 55 years. We randomly assigned patients over the age of 55 years who had stable distal radius fracture to either a short arm or long arm plaster cast at the first review 1 week after their injury. Radiographic and clinical follow-up was conducted at 1, 3, 5, 12 and 24 weeks following their injury. Also, degree of disability caused by each cast immobilization was evaluated at the patient's visit to remove the cast...

Carpal instability is often related to ruptured or lax carpal ligaments. Wrist cineradiography has been shown to be a good modality for diagnosing carpal instability. To create uniformity in obtaining and assessing wrist cineradiography, a wrist cineradiography protocol is desirable. This protocol will focus on wrist cineradiography for diagnosing carpal instabilities. It describes the pathologic motions of the carpus and correlates these with a clinical diagnosis.

We reviewed a series of 50 consecutive wrist arthroscopy patients who had been investigated pre-operatively by direct magnetic resonance arthrography and calculated the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value and overall accuracy of magnetic resonance arthrography in detecting full-thickness triangular fibrocartilage complex tears, intrinsic carpal ligamentous lesions, wrist synovitis and chondral lesions in the radiocarpal joint. The sensitivities of magnetic resonance arthrography in detecting central triangular fibrocartilage complex tears, peripheral triangular fibrocartilage complex tears, scapholunate ligament tears, lunotriquetral ligament tears, dorsal synovitis and radiocarpal chondral lesions were 89%, 63%, 71%, 100%, 32% and 65%, respectively, and its specificities in detecting these lesions were 91%, 98%, 89%, 94% 94% and 97%, respectively...
