Perilunate fracture-dislocation is rare. We report the case of a 24-year-old male who fell from his motorcycle and presented with a transverse lunate fracture with perilunate ligament damage. The initial diagnosis based on X-rays was confirmed by CT scan. A dorsal approach was used to obtain good reduction, double screw fixation and ligament reinsertion protected by temporary K-wires. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of transverse lunate fracture within perilunate fracture-dislocation. The patient returned to normal activities after 6 months...

Composite tissue allotransplantation (CTA) is a complex procedure requiring a multidisciplinary collaboration between surgeons, anesthetists, and transplantation specialists. We will describe the perioperative management of a bilateral forearm allograft performed at our facility. A 40-year-old man who lost both forearms was registered on the transplant waiting list; a suitable graft was available 11months later. Anesthesia required planning for vascular access, hemodynamic monitoring, fluid therapy management and prevention of deep vein thrombosis...

Three direct volar portals for wrist arthroscopy have been described previously: two radiocarpal and one midcarpal. The aim of this study was to systematically describe four volar arthroscopic portals through minimally invasive incisions using an inside-out approach from known dorsal portals. Four volar arthroscopic wrist portals were studied on six hand specimens using an inside-out technique: a radial radiocarpal approach (RRCA), an ulnar radiocarpal approach (URCA), a radial midcarpal approach (RMCA) and an ulnar midcarpal approach (UMCA)...

The treatment of impacted distal radius fractures is complex. Internal fixation by a dorsal approach with arthrotomy should be considered, particularly when the fractures are dorsally comminuted. This was a retrospective, observational study of 26 patients operated between 2008 and 2012 who were reviewed in September 2013. In the surgical procedure, a single dorsal incision was made over the distal radius and arthrotomy performed; the fracture site was stabilized with two 2.4mm locking plates. The average follow-up was 39months...

Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common entrapment syndrome. The incidence of a bilateral condition varies between 22% and 87%. The aim of our study was to assess the level of satisfaction and the clinical outcomes in a group of patients operated on through a bilateral neurolysis on the median nerve in the carpal tunnel, in one operating session. This is a retrospective study involving patients with an electromyographic and clinical diagnosis of bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome. Patients were treated on an outpatient basis and the bilateral neurolysis was performed by endoscopy...

When implanting the Maia(®) trapeziometacarpal prosthesis, surgeons will be faced with a variety of complications they must be able to recognize and anticipate. Their ability to deal with these complications and possibly even failures is governed by their knowledge of the right steps to take. The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the incidence of complications reported during implantation of the Maia(®) prosthesis, to describe their nature and potential predisposing factors, and to study failures and their outcomes...

The goal of this study was to evaluate the outcome of our surgical approach aimed at preventing complications following surgery for De Quervain tendinopathy. Our stepwise surgical procedure is described in detail. We reviewed 56 cases operated by a senior surgeon over 5years, and re-evaluated them with a minimum 15months' follow-up. Complications mentioned in the literature (poor wound healing, adhesions, nerve injury, incomplete decompression, tendon subluxation) were not present in any of the cases; the satisfaction rate was very high...

: Stenosing tenosynovitis or trigger finger is one of the most common disorders that affect the flexor tendon apparatus of the hand. Percutaneous release has been previously reported to be easier, quicker, less invasive and less costly than open surgery. The purpose of this study was to report the outcome of an alternative percutaneous trigger finger release technique. From March 2008 to January 2014, 92 patients (128 fingers) who underwent the alternative percutaneous trigger finger release, with a minimum of 6 months follow-up were included...

The TACTYS(®) implant is a new anatomic gliding articular and modular prosthesis for the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint. We report preliminary results with a minimum follow-up of 2 years. Twenty-two patients with a mean age of 63 years were operated on at a single center by two senior hand surgeons. Indications were painful and stiff PIP joints. The joint damage was caused by osteoarthritis (18 cases), post-traumatic arthritis (3) and rheumatoid arthritis (1). All prostheses were implanted through a dorsal mid-line transtendinous approach...

The induced membrane technique is used for bone reconstruction. It is based on the osteoinductive properties of a membrane induced by the insertion of a PMMA cement spacer. We will describe a simple, cost-effective method in which the body of a syringe is used to facilitate the cement introduction, allow insertion of a regular spacer, contain the cement volume in the extension of the diaphysis and protect the underlying tissues from the exothermic reaction during PMMA polymerisation.

Neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is one of the most controversial pain syndromes of the upper limbs. The controversies revolve around both the diagnosis and treatment of the non-specific or subjective subtypes. Their diagnosis rests on a combination of history, suggestive symptoms and clinical examination. Proximal pain is primarily muscular in origin, while distal symptoms may be the result of intermittent nerve compression and/or myofascial pain syndrome. Stringent clinical criteria are required to confirm the diagnosis of subjective TOS...

Since it was first described by Song in 1982, then by Katsaros in 1984, the lateral arm flap has become a workhorse technique for upper limb reconstruction. Herein we describe a clinical case of complex foot defect and bring up the possibility of using a composite neuromusculo-fasciocutaneous lateral arm/triceps free flap for its reconstruction. A 19-year-old male nonsmoker suffered ballistic trauma to his right foot with open multifragment Gustilo-IIIb fractures of the first to fifth metatarsal bones. Two weeks after debridement and V...

The use of a "bank finger" by its very nature is almost exclusively reserved for the management of traumatic hand injuries. Here, we described one case of thumb reconstruction using the patient's index finger as a "bank finger" after the excision of a grade II malignant fibrous histiocytoma.

Traumatic trapeziometacarpal joint dislocation of the thumb accounts for less than 1% of all hand injuries. This injury is even less common in children. Optimal treatment strategies for this injury are still the subject of debate for both children and adults. We report a case of recurrent posttraumatic trapeziometacarpal joint dislocation in an eight-year-old girl. We believe our case is the first report of recurrent acute dislocation leading to chronic dislocation in the English medical literature. Restoring the anatomy and biomechanics of the trapeziometacarpal joint is essential when treating these injuries; for this reason, surgical treatment is usually indicated...

This case report describes a patient who presented with a complete rupture of the flexor pollicis longus (FPL) tendon and partial rupture of the flexor digitorum profundus of the index finger, secondary to scaphoid nonunion. This is a rare, late complication that deserves to be described because of the potential diagnostic confusion with anterior interosseous nerve palsy. No case has been reported since 1999 in the literature. The mechanism was an attrition rupture due to sharp osteophytes. The scaphoid osteophytes were removed and the FPL was repaired by tendon transfer...

The authors present the case of a patient with a rare combination of open volar radiocarpal dislocation and complete destruction of the dorsal capsule-ligament complex and tendons. The treatment consisted of open reduction and arthrorisis (temporary arthrodesis during 45 days) with four K-wires (radiocarpal and radioulnar). The capsule-ligament complex was fixed with anchors and the extensor tendons were repaired by suturing. A long-arm cast was applied for six weeks. After an 18-month follow-up, the Cooney-modified Green and O'Brien score was 70 and the wrist range of motion was 85°...

Surgical repair of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) of the thumb metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint after complete rupture is usually protected by cast immobilization, which hinders return to work. The goal of this study was to determine the duration of sick leave for patients who had 6 weeks of K-wire immobilization instead of cast immobilization after surgical repair of the UCL. This prospective, observational, non-comparative study included patients who had surgical repair of the UCL of the thumb MCP joint followed by K-wire immobilization...
