9 Figures and Tables
FIG. 1. Preoperative synovitis of the wrist and metacarpophalangeal joints. The MCP were severe palmar subluxated.
FIG. 2. Preoperative palmar view; ulnar deviation of the fingers.
FIG. 3. Pathologic descent to palmar of the fourth and fifth metacarpal head with the fist.
FIG. 4. Preoperative radiograph of the wrist with evident ulnar translocation and DISI.
FIG. 5. After decortication of the radial facet of the lunate and lunate facet of the radius, 0.62 Kirschner wire is introduced in the radius and carpal bones in a neutral position. Rx, control is taken to avoid changes in the alignment and carpal angles.
FIG. 7. With the wrist in flexion, after decortication of the facets, 2-mm minicondylar of t-plate is fixed at the lunate, bone graft from the radius fills the space between lunate and radius, and later the rest of the screws are placed.
FIG. 8. Peroperative arthrodesis radiolunate with condylar plate; place where bone graft was taken in the radius; rupture of the EPL.
FIG. 9. Postoperative radiograph of the final result in PA and lateral views.
FIG. 10. Six months after surgery; 48" dorsal extension. FIG. 11. Six months after surgery: 30" palmar flexion.
