Limited wrist arthrodeses. I. The triscaphoid joint.
ABSTRACT Limited wrist arthrodesis is the surgical fusion of selected bones of the wrist. In each case the extent of the fusion is determined by the extent of the disease process. Limited wrist arthrodesis of the joints between the scaphoid, trapezium, and trapezoid is indicated in localized degenerative arthritis, radial hand dislocations, and certain instability patterns following ligament rupture (rotary subluxation of the scaphoid). Fusion is easily obtained utilizing a local bone graft donor site. Fusion of the three-bone unit leaves approximately 80% of flexion extension and 66% of radial and ulnar deviation in the wrist.

ABSTRACT: Symptomatic scaphotrapezius carpal coalition The authors describe a case of symptomatic scaphotrape-zius carpal coalition. This is a rare anomaly and the surgical treatment with scaphotrapezoid fusion results in pain relief.Revista Brasileira de Ortopedia 10/1997; 32(10):839-841.

ABSTRACT: Surgical Principles Limited wrist arthrodesis between scaphoid, trapezium and trapezoid after resection of articular surfaces and autogenous cancellous bone grafting. Prevention of rotatory scaphoid subluxation and subsequent carpal collapse; prevention of early radiocarpal arthrosis due to joint surface incongruency and, rerouting of transmitted forces across the proximal carpal row away from the lunate.Orthopaedics and Traumatology 06/1993; 2(2):89-95.
