Radial club hand

Ramanagouda Biradar, Arravind Pillai, Ullas Shetty
INTRODUCTION: Radial club hand is rare deformity, and many patients do not receive treatment due to lack of awareness. None of the treatment options available can restore normality. Fractures of the olecranon process in radial club hand are rare probably due to limited use of the limb. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a 35-year-old male with radial club hand who presented with a transverse fracture of the olecranon process. The patient underwent open reduction and tension band wiring for the fracture...

Recurrent deformity from centralization and radialization led to the development in 1999 of a new technique by the author called ulnarization. This method is performed through a volar approach in a vascular and physeal sparing fashion. It biomechanically balances the muscle forces on the wrist by dorsally transferring the flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU) from a deforming to a corrective force. The previous problems of a prominent bump from the ulnar head and ulnar deviation instability were solved by acutely shortening the diaphysis and by temporarily fixing the station of the carpus to the ulnar head at the level of the scaphoid...

Cyclophosphamide (CPA) remains one of the most widely prescribed anticancer drugs. It is also used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, childhood nephrotic syndrome and systemic lupus erythematosus. It is a potent immunosuppressive agent. It is commonly used in blood and bone marrow transplantation. With the growing trend among women postponing childbearing, the number of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer is also increasing thus escalating the chances of exposure of the unborn child to antineoplastic drugs...

The risk and consequences of an elbow or a wrist contracture are lower during a forearm lengthening than during a lower limb lengthening. This kind of complication can mostly be avoided by an active and intensive regimen of physiotherapy. However, there are some challenges to deal with in treating the disorder multiple exostoses and the radial club hand, including the lack of consensus on the best treatment for multiple exostoses. However, it is important to realize that the evolution of multiple exostoses can lead to a radial head dislocation which will damage the pronation and the supination range of motion...

Radial club hand may be congenital or acquired; radial deviation of the hand is usually found, associated with palmar flexion-pronation and treatment of severe forms of radial club hand is often difficult. Here we present a case of reconstruction of a severe postraumatic radial club hand with a free fibular osteoseptocutaneous flap and Sauve-Kapandji procedure in a 28-year-old man. The patient had a radial deviation of the wrist and right upper limb shortening as a result of an infected pseudarthrosis of the radius...

INTRODUCTION: Treatment of severe radial club hand is difficult. Several authors have emphasized the importance of preliminary soft-tissue distraction before centralization. HYPOTHESIS: Treatment of severe radial club hand by articulated mini-rail allowing prior soft-tissue distraction improves results. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thirteen patients were treated sequentially, with an initial step of distraction and a second step of centralization...

Radial club hand is an intercalary congenital deformity involving the forearm, wrist and hand. A congenital absence of radius (partial or complete) and ulnar bowing are classical radiographic abnormalities seen in this condition. This deformity is usually treated surgically in infants and young children but the management of this problem in an adult is complex and challenging. We present a neglected case of an adult with severe and rigid deformity that was successfully treated by one-stage correction involving ulnar osteotomy and wrist arthrodesis, simultaneously...

The purpose of the investigation is the analysis of the treatment results of the children with congenital club hand. The study was based on the treatment results of 35 patients with congenital club hand. All of them have anomaly of the hand. The patients are divided into 2 groups. The first group includes 13 patients who had surgical treatment: centralization or radialization of the wrist, distraction lengthening of the forearm and the correction of the ulna. The second group includes 22 patients who had the combination surgery of the forearm and the hand...

BACKGROUND: We report the utility of a surgical approach to treat mild (Bayne type I or II) radial club hand with a combination of radial bone lengthening and temporary external fixation between the ulna and the metacarpals. METHODS: We evaluated five radial club hands that received a new procedure involving radius lengthening with external fixation to support the radial side of the wrist. The evaluation included an assessment of radial deficiency deformity recurrence from the anteroposterior radiographs and a measurement of the passive range of wrist motion with the use of a goniometer before surgery and at the time of the final follow-up...

We describe a-2-year-old boy who presented with a neonatal history of thrombocytopenia associated with a constellation of limb malformations mimicking split hand/foot malformation with long bone deficiency (SHFLD) syndrome. Limb malformations consisted of unilateral monodactyly with radial aplasia, unilateral split foot and bilateral club foot. Tibial aplasia of one limb and tibial hypoplasia of the other limb were notable. Partial agenesis of the sacrum was additional skeletal malformation. Craniofacial features included dense thick scalp hair, narrow frontal area, thick eye-brows, deep-set eyes, depressed nasal bridge, and small overhanging nasal tip, full-cheeks, and large ears...

PURPOSE: To quantify the coupled motion of the wrist during selected functional tasks and to determine the effects of constraining this coupled motion using a radial-ulnar deviation blocking splint on performance of these tasks. METHODS: Ten healthy, right-handed men performed 15 trials during selected functional tasks with and without a splint, blocking radial and ulnar deviation. The following tasks were performed: dart throwing, hammering, basketball free-throw, overhand baseball and football throwing, clubbing, and pouring...

Congenital longitudinal radial deficiency is a rare congenital anomaly and encompasses a spectrum ranging from mild hypoplasia to complete absence of radius. Furthermore known as radial club hand or radial dysplasia, there is variable degree of deficiency along the radial side of the limb. The authors report a case series of four cases; two cases of isolated radial club hand and two associated with other anomalies, including VACTERL syndrome. The rarity of the disease and the need to exclude other associated anomalies are emphasized...

In patients with radial club hand (RCH), there is absence of the radius and severe hypoplasia of the thumb, so both wrist stabilization and thumb reconstruction are essential. When wrist stabilization is performed, recurrence of angulation is a problem. When thumb reconstruction is done, preservation of at least one major dorsal vein is important to prevent necrosis of the reconstructed thumb. We executed a strategic approach to RCH, which aimed to prevent both recurrence of angulation and necrosis of the reconstructed thumb...
