Four-corner arthrodesis is an accepted surgical option for treatment of scapholunate advanced collapse, scaphoid non-union advanced collapse and midcarpal instability. A preferred source of bone graft for performing four-corner arthrodesis is the iliac crest. An alternative and more convenient donor site is the distal radius. The aim of this study was to… CONTINUE READING
