Total wrist replacement arthroplasty

Ilse Degreef
Background The elbow joint is a complex compound articulation, with a linking role within the upper limb kinematics. Its hinge function allows for proper placement of our working instrument (the hand) in the space surrounding us, directed by the shoulder joint. Both reliable mobility and stability are essential elements to allow for consistent bridging of the distance we aim to achieve in common daily activities. Sufficient flexion and extension are required to ensure both the patients' independence and the dignity...

Total wrist arthroplasty are not used as widely as total knee and hip replacement. The functional hands are requiring surgeons to design a durable and functional satisfying prosthesis. This article will list the main reasons that cause the failure of the prosthesis. Some remarkable and representative prostheses are listed to show the devolvement of total wrist prosthesis and their individual special innovations to fix the problems. And the second part we will discuss the part that biomechanical elements act in the total wrist replacement (TWA)...

Arthrodesis of the elbow joint addresses pain due to intra-articular pathology, but with significant functional limitations. Loss of motion at the elbow is not completely compensated by the wrist and shoulder joints and elbow fusion is thus purely a salvage procedure. Advances in joint arthroplasty have allowed surgeons to address the functional limitations of arthrodesis, but despite these advances the elbow is still one of the joint replacements with higher complication rate. Conversion of a joint fusion to arthroplasty has been reported for the hip, knee, shoulder, and ankle...

In rheumatoid arthritis the small joints of the feet and hands are the first targets of the autoimmune process. In about one half of the patient the wrist is involved in the first stages of the disease (two years) increasing up to nearly 90 percent after a decade often including both sides. Osteoarthritis of the wrist is one of the most common conditions encountered by hand surgeons. One aim of all treatment options is to achieve the best possible hand function without pain. If conservative treatment fails, operative treatment is necessary...

BACKGROUND: With advanced Kienböck's disease, hyaline cartilage delamination or bone fragmentation render the lunate unsalvageable. Common surgical options are proximal row carpectomy, scaphotrapeziotrapezoid fusion, scaphocapitate fusion, or total wrist fusion. The purpose of this study was to prospectively evaluate the clinical and radiographic outcomes of one alternative: lunate prosthetic replacement arthroplasty combined with reconstruction of the scapholunate and lunotriquetral interosseous ligaments using the flexor carpi radialis tendon...

BACKGROUND: Osteoarthritis of the trapeziometacarpal joint of thumb occurs frequently and can be very disabling. Numerous surgical techniques including trapeziectomy with or without tendon interposition arthrodesis and partial or total joint arthroplasty with cemented and noncemented prosthesis have been described for the treatment of trapeziometacarpal joint osteoarthritis. Initial problems of osteolysis and implant loosening have been substantially reduced with improvement in implant design...

UNLABELLED: This is a case report of a 59-year-old female patient with a posttraumatic growth arrest of the distal radius, leading to radioscaphoid osteoarthritis, carpal instability, and a symptomatic ulnocarpal impaction syndrome that was successfully treated with combined total wrist arthroplasty and ulnar head implant. One year postoperatively, there was no change in position without any signs of loosening of both implants. Both subjectively and functionally, all clinical parameters-Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (DASH), visual analog scale (VAS), grip strength-had improved...

We reviewed evidence on total wrist replacement from the last 5 years. Eight articles met a minimum set standard. The results of 405 prostheses were available, including seven different manufacturers. The mean follow up was 2.3-7.3 years with an average age of 52-63. Rheumatoid arthritis was the indication in 42% of patients. Motec demonstrated the best post-operative DASH scores. Only Maestro achieved a defined functional range of motion post-operatively. Universal 2 displayed the highest survival rates (100% at 3-5 years), while Elos had the lowest (57% at 5 years)...

OBJECTIVE: To describe current trends in the numbers of rheumatoid arthritis (RA)-related surgeries. METHODS: The number of operations was determined for patients with RA in a large observational cohort [Institute of Rheumatology, Rheumatoid Arthritis (IORRA)] enrolled from 2001 to 2012. RESULTS: The total number of operations peaked in 2002 and gradually decreased thereafter, but began to increase again in 2008. The number of total knee replacements has decreased since 2003, while the number of wrist and foot arthroplasties and the number of artificial finger prosthesis surgeries have increased gradually...

Trapezium components from two uncemented total joint replacements were compared in a three-dimensional finite element model. A 100 N axial and angular load was applied in a normal and an osteoporotic bone model. The axial deformation and maximum periprosthetic stress are greater for the Elektra than the Motec CMC cup. The Motec CMC design is less sensitive to changing bone quality. The Elektra cup transmits more stress to the cortical bone rim in all load conditions, but under angular loading the proportionate increase in stress is lower...

We present the clinical outcome of patients who underwent RE-MOTION Total Wrist Replacement (TWR) for the treatment of Rheumatoid arthritis involving the wrist. Ten patients were available for follow-up, ranging from one to five years after index surgery. Two patients required surgical intervention for wound breakdown, including one patient who required a radial forearm flap for skin coverage. No patients required revision surgery or conversion to fusion. Patients who did not have complications gained statistically significant pain relief and improvement in mean overall flexion...

INTRODUCTION: Scaphoid nonunion advanced collapse (SNAC) and radioscaphoid osteoarthritis are difficult to treat. Options include proximal row carpectomy (PRC), four corner fusion (4CF) and wrist arthroplasty or arthrodesis. However, with inevitable disease progression, a significant proportion of patients undergo total wrist fusion. This reduces function by abolishing wrist movement. We review the preliminary results of a pyrocarbon interpositional radiocarpal implant in a small cohort of patients from our prospective study and challenge the assumption that there are no surgical alternatives...

Over the past 40 years, total wrist arthroplasty (TWA) has emerged as a cost-effective treatment option for wrist arthritis. First-generation implant designs have changed tremendously; current devices are designed to enhance wrist stability, provide greater implant longevity, and minimize surgical and postoperative complications. Although arthrodesis remains the standard for surgical management, TWA outcomes demonstrate that the procedure has excellent clinical promise. Additional prospective studies are needed to compare outcomes of wrist arthrodesis with those of TWA with current implants...
