Although several types of intercarpal fusion have been advocated for the treatment of Kienbock's disease, the clinical outcome of each procedure is still inconclusive. The joint load and ligament tension based on a three-dimensional model were measured to determine which intercarpal fusion procedures unload the lunate and whether they alter the force transmission through the entire wrist joint. Ten theoretical models of wrists were used to simulate three different operative procedures: capitate… CONTINUE READING
