Abstract

The effect of progressive rotatory subluxation of the scaphoid on radio-scaphoid contact area was examined in a cadaveric model. Five degrees of subluxation reduced the contact area of the proximal pole by 44%, with a shift to the dorsal lip of the radius. At 20 degrees of subluxation the contact area was reduced by 77%, with a shift radially to the dorsal… (More)
