An experimental model with a static positioning frame, pressure-sensitive film (Fuji), and a microcomputer-based video digitizing system, previously developed by the two senior authors, was used in this study to examine the effects of increasing perilunate instability on the load transfer characteristics of the wrist. These effects included a significant dorsal ulnar shift of the scaphoid centroid with increasing perilunate instability together with a less dramatic palmar ulnar shift of the… CONTINUE READING
