Hamate-pisiform coalition is an exceptional form of carpal coalition. Case reports are essential to gain a better understanding of this variant. We report a case of congenital bilateral hamate-pisiform coalition in a 20-year-old male discovered in the context of a right wrist trauma. Radiographs also revealed a bilateral scapholunate diastasis. Clinical examination and radiological findings suggested that the right wrist scapholunate diastasis was related to scapholunate instability. Left wrist scapholunate diastasis could be related to (1) a pathological feature or (2) a normal variant associated with hamate-pisiform coalition...

BACKGROUND: Displaced Colles' fractures are treated by manipulation and below elbow cast application. Malunion is a common complication, resulting in pain, mid-carpal instability, and post-traumatic arthritis. Fracture stabilization by percutaneous pinning is a simple, minimally invasive technique that helps prevent displacement of the fracture, thereby minimizing complications. This study aims to assess the amount of collapse after closed manipulation and percutaneous pinning with Kirschner wires (K-wires) and its correlation with the functional outcome of the wrist after union...

BACKGROUND: Scapholunate dissociation is the most common form of carpal instability. However, there is no gold standard for operative treatment. In this prospective observational study on 54 patients, a modified minimally invasive dynamic extensor carpi radialis longus tenodesis is described, which is characterized by a smaller approach and application of a cannulated screw and washer for tendon fixation. METHODS: Quick-Disabilities of Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH)-questionnaire results, post-operative satisfaction, range of motion and grip strength are analyzed...

: The classical definition of 'Palmer Type IB' triangular fibrocartilage complex tear, includes a spectrum of clinical conditions. This review highlights the clinical and arthroscopic criteria that enable us to categorize five classes on a treatment-oriented classification system of triangular fibrocartilage complex peripheral tears. Class 1 lesions represent isolated tears of the distal triangular fibrocartilage complex without distal radio-ulnar joint instability and are amenable to arthroscopic suture...

Wrist ligaments are crucial structures for the maintenance of carpal stability. They are classified into extrinsic ligaments, connecting the carpus with the forearm bones or distal radioulnar ligaments, and intrinsic ligaments, entirely situated within the carpus. Lesions of intrinsic and extrinsic ligaments of the wrist have been demonstrated to occur largely, mostly in patients with history of trauma and carpal instability, or rheumatoid arthritis. Ultrasound allows for rapid, cost-effective, non-invasive and dynamic evaluation of the wrist, and may represent a valuable diagnostic tool...

A systematic review of peer reviewed articles has shown that the main cause for wrist arthroplasty revision is carpal and radial prosthetic loosening and instability. To improve arthroplasty outcomes, successive generations of implants have been developed over time. The problem with the current generation of implants is the lack of long-term outcomes data. The aim of the present work was to test the hypothesis that the current generation Maestro WRS implant has a stress, strain and stability behaviour which may be associated with a reduced risk of long-term radial component loosening...

: 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...

The distal radioulnar joint, the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) and the wrist are stabilized by many ligaments allowing not only a wide range of motion but also providing sufficient stability. The complex arrangement of carpal ligaments and prosupination around the forearm joint enables multiaxial motion patterns. In the wrist, intra-articular ligaments can be differentiated from extra-articular capsular ligaments as well as intrinsic and extrinsic ligament courses. Imaging is essential for classification of dynamic and static instability patterns...

Scapholunate advance collapse (SLAC) and Scaphoid nonunion advance collapse (SNAC), are the two most common patterns of postraumatic wrist arthritis. SLAC wrist develops after attenuation, either traumatically or atraumatically, of the scapholunate ligament. Atraumatic causes of SLAC wrist include calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate deposition disease, reumathoid arthritis, neuropathic diseases, and b2-microglobulin asociated amyloid deposition diseases. On the other hand, SNAC wrist develops following a scahpoid fracture that has progressed to a nonunion...

Fusion of the carpal bones is a rare anatomical abnormality, caused by a defect in the separation and cavitation during embryonic development. It has a prevalence of about 0.1% and most of the time, patients do not present with symptoms. Symptoms are usually caused by wear and tear of the ligaments attached to the fused carpal fragments. We present a case in which a woman aged 36 years experiences pain caused by a lunato-triquetral instability which in turn is caused by a unilateral complete fusion of the scaphoid and the trapezium...

Injuries to the scapholunate interosseous ligament (SLIL) are the most common cause of carpal instability. A SLIL injury typically follows a fall on an outstretched hand, with the wrist in hyperextension, ulnar deviation and intercarpal supination. We hypothesize that repetitive axial loading on the wrist in hyperextension, during the reception and digging motions of volleyball, can lead to functional overloading of the SLIL. To identify patients and to determine the clinical history and surgical treatment performed, we analyzed hospital records, X-rays, electronic databases containing all the operations performed, and image files (including before and after surgery and follow-up)...

Background Scapholunate (SL) interosseus ligament injuries detected at an early stage could allow the surgeon to prevent progression through the spectrum of injury that leads to instability, and eventually osteoarthritis. We contend that early instability following injury can be detected by visualizing the relative motions and distances between the involved carpal bones (scaphoid and lunate) during wrist movement in vivo. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the utility of dynamic CT (i.e., 4DCT) in diagnosing SL interosseus ligament injuries in two patients with clinical suspicion of SL interosseus ligament injury during flexion-extension (FE), radial-ulnar (RU) deviation, and dart thrower's (DT) motions...

The assessment and management of Kienböck Disease (KD) has always been a conundrum. The Lichtman classification has traditionally been used to guide treatment based on imaging. Arthroscopy provides a direct visualization of the articular surface, allows probing of the surfaces, and enables minimally invasive techniques to be performed. The Lichtman-Bain classification is a new classification that takes into account the osseous, vascular, and cartilage aspects of the lunate and the secondary effects on the wrist...

Kienböck disease is a condition that typically occurs in the "at-risk" patient, in the "at-risk" aspect of the proximal condyle of the "at-risk" lunate. In the active male, repetitive loading causes the stress fracture that commences in the single layer proximal subchondral bone plate. The lunate fracture commences at the point the lunate cantilevers over the edge of the distal radius, and then takes on the shape of the radius. We postulate that the stress fracture violates the parallel veins of the venous subarticular plexus-leading to localized venous hypertension and subsequent ischemia and edema of the fatty marrow...

BACKGROUND: Scaphoid fractures represent the most common carpal fractures and are often problematic and frequently lead to nonunion with osteoarthritis and collapse of the wrist. The reasons for the nonunion are manifold. Therefore, the main goal of diagnosis and therapy of acute fractures is to achieve bony union and to restore the anatomic shape of the scaphoid. In the long run, only this can preserve the normal function of the wrist. METHODOLOGY: The given recommendations are based on the new S3-level guideline of the AWMF (Association of the Scientific Medical Societies)...

The complex interaction of the carpal bones, their intrinsic and extrinsic ligaments, and the forces in the normal wrist continue to be studied. Factors that influence kinematics, such as carpal bone morphology and clinical laxity, continue to be identified. As imaging technology improves, so does our ability to better understand and identify these factors. In this review, we describe advances in our understanding of carpal kinematics and kinetics. We use scapholunate ligament tears as an example of the disconnect that exists between our knowledge of carpal instability and limitations in current reconstruction techniques...

Kienböck disease, or lunate avascular necrosis, can lead to chronic wrist pain and instability. Its etiology appears to be multifactorial including variations in adjacent anatomical structures, interrupted blood supply, and trauma. Capitate-hamate fusion is the second most commonly diagnosed carpal coalition and not treated unless symptomatic. Coalitions may alter the wrist mechanics depending on their extent. No prior reports have associated Kienböck disease with capitate-hamate coalition. We present 2 cases with congenital capitate-hamate fusion and lunate AVN...

The wrist is a region that is very vulnerable to injuries of the extremities. Among these injuries, fractures of the pyramidal bone (or triquetrum) in association with dislocation of the hamate and carpal instability are uncommon. They are generally correlated with high-energy trauma and may be associated with neurovascular deficits, muscle-tendon disorders, skin lesions or injuries to other carpal bones. Thus, in this report, one of these rare cases of transtriquetral perihamate fracture-dislocation with carpal instability is presented, diagnosed by means of radiography on the right wrist of the patient who presented pain, edema and limitation of flexion-extension of the carpus after trauma to the region...

INTRODUCTION: Due to a higher risk for implant loosening, particularly of the distal component, patients with physically demanding lifestyles are infrequently considered for total wrist arthroplasty (TWA). A distal radius hemiarthroplasty may obviate the need for the strict restrictions recommended for patients treated by TWA, thus providing another surgical option for active patients with severe wrist arthritis, especially those with articular degeneration of the lunate facet of the radius, capitate head, or combination of both, who are not typically candidates for traditional motion-preserving procedures...
