Biodynamics of the wrist: radiologic approach to scapholunate instability.

Abstract

A study of 126 normal wrists has allowed us to determine the normal laxity of the scapholunate complex (36 degrees) by measuring and comparing the range of movement of each of these two bones on sagittal views on x-ray films. There was no difference between dominant and nondominant hands. A study of eight cadaver wrists and 13 pathologic wrists has shown… (More)
