Five to Ten-Year Outcomes of the Universal Total Wrist Arthroplasty in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Distal radius fracture after SauvÃ©-Kapandji procedure in a rheumatoid arthritis patient. Ochi, Kensuke; Horiuchi, Yukio; Matsumura, Takashi; Nakamura, Mitsukazu; Takei, Terue; Yabe, Hiroki // Modern Rheumatology (Springer Science & Business Media B.V.);Apr2012, Vol. 22 Issue 2, p290
We report a case of distal radius fracture after a SauvÃ©-Kapandji procedure combined with synovectomy and tendon transfer in a rheumatoid arthritis patient. This case shared several unusual features that were also seen in a previously reported case. Based on these features, we discuss...
- Load transmission characteristics of limited carpal fusions: a two-dimensional finite element study. Bicen, A.; Gokdemir, H.; Seber, S.; Aydin, R.; Gunal, I. // European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology;Feb2015, Vol. 25 Issue 2, p305
Although limited carpal fusion is a choice of treatment in several wrist disorders, little is known about the biomechanics of these procedures, especially the loads carried by the ligaments. In a finite element study, four types of limited carpal fusions (scaphotrapeziotrapezoid, capitohamate,...
- Isolated Comminuted Fracture of the Trapezium: A Case Report and Review of the Literature. Suthersan, Mayuran; Chan, Simon P. // Internet Journal of Orthopedic Surgery;2011, Vol. 18 Issue 2, p1
Carpal fractures are poorly recognised by junior and non-orthopaedic medical staff due to the small size and the complex arrangement of carpal bones. Scaphoid fractures comprise 70% of all carpal fractures. In contrast, trapezial fractures represent only 0.4% of all carpal injuries. This is a...
- Proximal Row Carpectomy. Stern, Peter J.; Agabegi, Steven S.; Kiefhaber, Thomas R.; DiDonna, Michael L. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Sep2005 Supplement, Vol. 87-A, p166
BACKGROUND: Proximal row carpectomy is an accepted motion-sparing surgical procedure for the treatment of degenerative conditions of the wrist. However, there is little information regarding the long-term clinical and radiographic results following this procedure. METHODS: Twenty-two wrists in...
- Triquetral Bone Fractures: The Forgotten Fractures. Murphy, Michelle // Synergy: Imaging & Therapy Practice;May2012, p4
The article focuses on helping students to identify triquetral bone fractures and it also suggests adapted alternative techniques to demonstrate the triquetral bone. There are three main causes of triquetral bone fractures: firstly impingement from ulnar styloid, secondly sheer force and thirdly...
- High wrist scores seen with shuttle technique for TFCC repair. Blisard, Renee // Orthopedics Today;Jul2011, Vol. 31 Issue 7, p65
The article discusses research being done on the effects of the shuttle relay technique for triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC), referencing a study by Michael R. Redler et al.
- Long-term study shows durability of distal scaphoid resection. // Orthopedics Today;Oct2011, Vol. 31 Issue 10, p16
The article reports that distal scaphoid resection arthroplasty offers good long-term results for scaphoid nonunion patients, which is based on a study presented by Michael C. Vance at the American Society for Surgery of the Hand in Las Vegas, Nevada from September 8 to 10, 2011.
- PERSPECTIVE. Chang, James // Orthopedics Today;Oct2011, Vol. 31 Issue 10, p16
The author comments on the study presented by Michael C. Vance at the American Society for Surgery of the Hand in Las Vegas, Nevada, from September 8 to 10, 2011, which found that distal scaphoid resection arthroplasty offers good long-term results for scaphoid nonunion patients.
- Fracture: dislocation of the trapezium: a case report and review of the literature. Barbier, Olivier; Nguyen, Lan; Ollat, Didier; Versier, Gilbert // European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology;May2012, Vol. 22 Issue 4, p333
Fractures and dislocation of trapezium are rare, and diagnosis could be missed. Special radiographic view and a CT scan could be performed to help for the diagnosis. Poor or inadequate treatment of displaced fracture could lead to long-term morbidity. Authors reported an unusual case of vertical...
