Because the radioulnar ligament attaches to the ulnar fovea and base of the ulnar styloid, foveal detachment of the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) induces severe distal radioulnar joint instability. This article describes both an arthroscopic and open repair technique to reattach the TFCC to the fovea. Both techniques reanchor the detached TFCC to(More)
We retrospectively defined the rate and clinical features of tendon entrapment in 693 consecutive patients with 701 distal radius fractures treated in a single hospital. Eight extensor tendons and one flexor tendon were entrapped. All fractures with extensor tendon entrapment were palmarly displaced (Smith type) or epiphyseal. Flexor tendon entrapment was(More)
This study evaluates the outcome of axillary nerve injuries treated with nerve grafting. Thirty-six patients were retrospectively reviewed after a mean of 53 months (minimum 12 months). The mean interval from injury to surgery was 6.5 months. Recovery of deltoid function was assessed by the power of both abduction and retropulsion, the deltoid bulk and(More)
Currently, ultra-high-voltage (UHV) systems are under development in many countries around the world in order to accommodate the increasing levels in demand for electric power. In Korea, the commercialization of a 765kV ultra-high-voltage system has been ongoing since 2002. We have developed a number of protection relays suitable for the UHV system to(More)
Congruity of the ulnohumeral joint, especially its anterior portion, is an important stabilizer of the elbow joint. We report on 3 patients in whom the insufficiency of the coronoid process, such as nonunion or a flattened trochlear notch, was associated with posterolateral rotatory instability of the elbow. In our opinion, addressing the anterior bony(More)
A 62-year-old woman visited our hospital one year after a motor vehicle accident complaining of ulnar wrist pain and restricted pronation and supination. Radiographs showed a 35° angular deformity at the ulnar neck. Closing wedge osteotomy was performed using two plates for stabilization. Twenty-four months postoperatively, the osteotomy site united without(More)
To the best of our knowledge, there are no previous reports on anterior interosseous nerve palsy (AINP) caused by a soft tissue tumor after fracture of the distal radius. We treated a case of giant forearm lipoma that caused AINP one day after internal fixation of a distal radius fracture.
