BACKGROUND: In post-traumatic, dynamic, or static scapholunate (SL) instability, an SL ligament reconstruction is advisable to avoid long-term complications. However, a sufficient primary reconstruction is best achieved in acute injuries. For chronic SL dissociation, there is still no satisfying standard surgical technique. In this context, we evaluated the clinical outcome of Weiss's osteoligamentoplasty as a treatment option. METHODS: Over a three-year period, 16 patients with chronic and symptomatic SL dissociation Grade-II and III, without the signs of osteoarthrosis were, surgically treated using a bone-retinaculum-bone autograft from the distal radius...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Our study aimed to evaluate a group of patients who in the period from 2005 to 2014 underwent a four-corner arthrodesis of the wrist in our department. We also wanted to verify the hypothesis as to whether the use of conventional dorsal plate without the application of bone grafts leads to comparable results as the use of dorsal locking plates and routine application of bone grafts. MATERIAL AND METHODS Throughout the years 2005 to 2014 the four-corner arthrodesis of the wrist was performed in our department in a total of 62 patients, in two cases bilaterally...

The aim of this study was to determine and analyze the functional and radiographic outcomes after proximal row carpectomy (PRC). We hypothesized that this surgery could restore wrist mobility and function in case of radiocarpal osteoarthritis or severe carpal trauma. Sixty-two patients who had undergone PRC were included in this study: 44 patients with wrist osteoarthritis (11 SNAC, 24 SLAC, 3 Kienböck's disease, 6 other) and 18 patients with severe carpal trauma. Each patient underwent clinical (pain, range of motion, grip strength, functional scores) and radiographic evaluations...

Background  Giant cell tumor (GCT) of bone is rare in the carpus, and only 11 cases have been reported in the capitate bone. The problem with this location is the high recurrence rate due to easy extension to the adjacent joint spaces and bones. We describe a case of GCT on the capitate bone and the treatment in comparison with the previously reported cases. Case Description  The case report concerns a 48-year-old woman with a GCT of the capitate diagnosed on curettage. The treatment consisted of large resection with the lunatum and third metacarpal arthrodesis, with a successful union at 2 years follow-up, no recurrence, and an improved function of the wrist...

BACKGROUND: Total wrist arthroplasty (TWA) has been described as traditionally being performed with fixation in the radius and carpus with cement. The TWA implant used in our series has been associated with promising results in studies with up to 6 years followup; however, studies evaluating survivorship, pain, and function with this implant are limited. QUESTION/PURPOSE: (1) To report ROM and pain scores after wrist reconstruction with cementless fourth-generation TWA at a mean followup of 9 years (range, 4...

The results of wrist arthroplasty for severely destroyed and painful wrists are generally good in pain reduction, increased grip strength, and upper limb function. The wrist range of motion is usually preserved but not improved. Implant survival seems better than it was with earlier implant designs; however, there are problems of carpal component loosening. Patient selection plays an important role, requiring experience, careful patient information, and discussing the pros and cons of arthroplasty and partial or total wrist arthrodesis...

The failed total wrist arthroplasty represents a challenging reconstructive problem for the upper extremity surgeon. Bone loss, poor bone quality, and soft tissue defects all present technical challenges when considering revision procedures. Our purpose is to describe a technique for wrist arthrodesis after failed total wrist arthroplasty utilizing fresh-frozen femoral head allograft and dorsal plate fixation. We describe a simple method of allograft preparation for this procedure, as graft preparation and implantation can be time consuming and technically challenging...

Little is known about the mechanics of in vivo loading on total wrist prostheses where many studies have looked at the mechanics of other types of arthroplasty such as for the hip and the knee which has contributed to the overall success of these types of procedures. Currently surgeons would prefer to carry out arthrodesis on the wrist rather than consider arthroplasty as clinical data have shown that the outcome of total wrist arthroplasty is poorer than compared to the hip and knee. More research is needed on the loading mechanisms of the implants in order to enhance the design of future generation implants...

The goal of wrist denervation is to decrease pain at the wrist, whether caused by an intra- or extra-articular problem or even when the reason for the pain is unknown. It is an alternative to partial or total arthrodesis and proximal row carpectomy. Our hypothesis was that wrist denervation with a two-incision technique was a reliable and efficient way to treat painful degenerative wrists. Thirty-three patients, 48years old on average, were included in this study. Indications were scapholunate advanced collapse (SLAC) in 18 cases, scaphoid nonunion advanced collapse (SNAC) in 10, distal radius fracture sequelae with advanced radiocarpal osteoarthritis in 4, and post-traumatic ulnocarpal impingement in 1 case...

Scapholunate (SL) instability is the most common form of carpal instability. Imaging (especially radiography) plays an important role in the staging, management, and postoperative follow-up of SL instability. In the final stage of SL instability, known as scapholunate advanced collapse, progressive degenerative changes occur at the carpal level. The goals of this article are to review the surgical options available for addressing the different stages of scapholunate advanced collapse, along with an emphasis on normal postoperative imaging and complications associated with each surgical option...
