OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the probability of achieving a satisfactory alignment in the performance of a first wrist arthroplasty. METHODS The total wrist arthroplasties (ReMotion®) of 14 wrists of 7 corpses performed by 14 inexperienced surgeons were reviewed radiologically. Radial component alignment in the posteroanterior view(More)
Classical arthroscopic techniques for scapholunate instability consist of debridement, thermal shrinkage, and percutaneous pinning. Good results are obtained in acute lesions or in chronic partial tears, but they are less predictable when the lesion is complete, because of the poor healing capacity of the scapholunate ligament and because it is not possible(More)
Arthroscopic scapholunate volar and dorsal ligament reconstruction achieves an anatomic reconstruction, avoids an open approach and capsular detachment, and provides a strong construct for early mobilization. Clinical results are discussed. Detailed "surgical tips" and technical modifications are provided.
Background Nowadays, the wrist is not limited to a dorsal visualization; the joint can be thought of as a "box," which can be visualized from almost every perspective. The purpose of this study was to describe a new volar central portal for the wrist, following three principles: a single incision that allows access to both the radiocarpal and midcarpal(More)
