Vascular proliferation with perivascular round cell infiltration and oedema, and large areas of fibroblastic activity were observed around the digital flexor tendons, similar to those observed in the synovium of patients operated on for carpal tunnel syndrome.
Treatment of radiocarpal degenerative osteoarthritis by radioscapholunate arthrodesis and distal scaphoidectomy.
TLDR
Patients who require an RSL arthrodesis for the treatment of severe localized radiocarpal DJD appear to have less pain and to retain more flexion and radial deviation if the distal scaphoid is excised concomitantly.

Treatment of dysesthesia of the sensory branch of the radial nerve by distal posterior interosseous neurectomy.
TLDR
It seems likely that the dysesthesia observed in isolated injuries of the sensory branch of the radial nerve is transmitted to the cortical receptors through the intact posterior interosseous nerve.
