From 1995 to 1998, 30 patients with dorsal wrist ganglia and four with recurrent dorsal ganglia underwent arthroscopic resection. At a mean follow-up of 16 months, no complications were seen, but minimal pain persisted in three patients. Two recurrences were seen after arthroscopic resection of primary ganglia.
Volar fixation of dorsally unstable distal radius fractures is a new method of treatment that provides the benefits of stable internal fixation without the complications of the dorsal approach. A new, fixed-angle fixation device, the distal volar radius (DVR) plate, (Fig. 1) has been introduced for this purpose. Experience gained by applying this technique(More)
Volar fixed-angle fixation of distal radius fractures is a new method of treatment that provides the benefits of stable internal fixation without incurring the disadvantages of the dorsal approach. The DVR plate is a new fixation implant that was introduced specifically for the purpose of managing both dorsal and volar displaced fractures from the volar(More)
We devised a new flap using the palmar cutaneous branch of the superficial radial artery proximally and anastomosed with a cutaneous perforator of the superficial palmar arch distally. We named our flap "the volar glabrous palmar flap." The flap was used both as a free flap and as a reverse-flow island flap. Thirty-six patients with volar hand defects (24(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study is to evaluate the safety and utility of the extended flexor carpi radialis (FCR) exposure and volar locking plate fixation for partially healed malaligned fractures of distal radius. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-five patients with a partially healed malaligned fracture of the distal radius had realignment of the fracture(More)
