Surgical approaches to the distal radioulnar joint.
TLDR
A description of technique and review of the surgical experience in exposure and treatment of DRUJ pathology will be presented, with advantages, disadvantages, and authors' preferred techniques. Expand
Surgical approaches to the distal radioulnar joint.
ABSTRACTThe distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) is classified as a uniaxial synovial pivot joint between the convex head of the ulna and the concave ulnar notch of the radius.The DRUJ can be approachedExpand
Sigmoid notch osteoplasty for chronic volar instability of the distal radioulnar joint: a case report.
TLDR
The case of painful dislocation on supination was successfully treated by osteoplasty of the volar lip of the sigmoid notch to create a buttress that prevented volar dislocation. Expand
Translunate fracture with associated perilunate injury: 3 case reports with introduction of the translunate arc concept.
TLDR
It is believed the translunate injury reflects a higher-velocity trauma and produces further destabilization of the carpus when compared with the established greater and lesser arc injuries. Expand
Dorsal perilunate dislocations and fracture-dislocations: questionnaire, clinical, and radiographic evaluation.
TLDR
Twenty-two consecutive patients underwent open reduction internal fixation of dorsal perilunate dislocations and fracture-dislocations through combined dorsal and volar approaches and returned to full duties in their usual occupations and a total of 82% were employed. Expand
Sigmoid notch osseous reconstruction.

  • Techniques in hand & upper extremity surgery
  • 2007
TLDR
This technique addresses the osseous cause to DRUJ instability and avoids the need for complex soft tissue procedures to treat chronic volar instability or salvage procedures to treating dorsal instability of the DRU J associated with an impacted fracture of the dorsal rim of the sigmoid notch.

TLDR
Effective restoration of the bony architecture requires a thorough knowledge of distal radius anatomy, understanding of the goals of treatment, versatility in surgical approaches, and familiarity with multiple fixation options. Expand

Acute ulnar neuropathy with fractures at the wrist.
TLDR
The return of function in the three wrists was related to the promptness and accuracy of reduction of the fracture and to the decompression of the ulnar nerve in Guyon's canal. Expand

TLDR
Observation at operation in two cases and studies in a cadaver demonstrated a close relationship of the ulnar nerve to a fracture line at the lower end of the radius when the distal fragment is displaced dorsally and radially. Expand
Palmar cutaneous branch of the ulnar nerve.
TLDR
An incision in line with the ring finger ray axis is recommended in an attempt to avoid injury to both ulnar and median palmar cutaneous nerves. Expand
The carpal tunnel syndrome and Colles' fractures.
TLDR
The carpal tunnel syndrome is frequently associated with a Colles fracture and median nerve compression often occurs after immobilization with wrist in Cotton-Loder position, so this position should rarely, if ever, be used in treatment. Expand
Treatment of complex intra-articular distal radius fractures.
TLDR
Open, semi-open, and arthroscopically assisted techniques for reduction and fixation of complex distal radius fractures are explored to gain an appreciation of which fractures can benefit from operative treatment and which techniques may be most useful for specific fracture types. Expand

Open, semi-open, and arthroscopically assisted techniques for reduction and fixation of complex distal radius fractures are explored to gain an appreciation of which fractures can benefit from operative treatment and which techniques may be most useful for specific fracture types. Expand
Ulnar Nerve Laceration — a Complication of Carpal Tunnel Decompression: Case Report and Review of the Literature
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a well-established clinical entity for which surgical decompression, with or without neurolysis, is a treatment of proved value (Inglis, 1972; Phalen, 1966; Phalen, 1972).Expand
Open reduction and internal fixation of comminuted, intraarticular fractures of the distal radius.
TLDR
The results indicate that the procedures are technically demanding and have high early (15%) and late (35%) complication rates, including the need for further operative procedures, but patient satisfaction is very high, most patients returning to previous occupations. Expand

TLDR
A curved longitudinal incision located on the ulnar side of the axis of the ring-finger ray and extending through the skin, subcutaneous tissue, and the ligament is recommended, followed by elevation of a radial flap keeping all three tissue layers and the palmar cutaneous branch intact. Expand
