PURPOSE This study proposed a method of restoring the longitudinal stability of the forearm provided by the central band of the interosseous membrane (IOM) by using a percutaneously placed suture button construct. We hypothesized that supporting the forearm IOM with a suture button construct would restore longitudinal stability in a cadaveric model of the Essex-Lopresti lesion.
