Ten resections of the proximal row of carpal bones and 42 partial arthrodese were performed for carpal instability. Whenever possible, the authors prefer the second operation. This choice is often made during the operation and essentially depends on the presence of radio-scaphoid osteoarthritis and the condition of the cartilage of the head of the capitatum.
