Excision of Incomplete Hook of the Hamate Fractures.

Orthopedics 2019 Jan 30:1-4. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Incomplete hook of the hamate fractures are difficult to diagnose and should be promptly removed to expedite return to sport. From January 2000 to November 2016, 143 excisions of the hook of the hamate were performed following fracture of the hamulus. Of these 143 excisions, 17 were performed because of a preoperative diagnosis of incomplete fracture. Read More

Augmented External Fixation of Ulnar Carpometacarpal Joint Fracture Dislocations.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2018 Nov 30. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Cleveland Clinic.

Ulnar-sided carpometacarpal (CMC) joint fracture dislocations are relatively uncommon, frequently associated with fractures of the metacarpal base and/or hamate, and often sustained by young male individuals secondary to striking a hard object. The complexity of ulnar-sided CMC fracture dislocations necessitates careful restitution of anatomic alignment and joint congruency for mobility and stability. Miniaturization of the external fixation device has allowed application to the hand. Read More

Hemi-Hamate Autograft Arthroplasty for the Proximal Interphalangeal Joint Revisited: A New Surgical Approach.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2018 Jun;23(2):297-301

‡ Department of Plastic Surgery, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The hemi-hamate arthroplasty for proximal interphalangeal joint (PIPJ) dorsal fracture dislocations relies on complete dislocation of the joint using the 'shotgun' approach which provides excellent exposure but damages the delicate intrinsic joint stabilisers. We present a new approach to the PIPJ when performing the hemi-hamate arthroplasty. The volar surgical approach involves freeing up the whole tendon sheath-periosteal unit as a single layer, and retracting this to one side. Read More

Concomitant hook of hamate fractures in patients with scaphoid fracture: more common than you might think.

Skeletal Radiol 2018 Apr 16;47(4):505-510. Epub 2017 Nov 16.

Department of Radiology, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, Guy's Hospital, Great Maze Pond, London, SE1 9RT, UK.

Objective: The scaphoid is the most commonly fractured carpal bone. The presence of a concomitant hook of hamate fracture is of particular relevance given that it is often occult on routine wrist/scaphoid radiographs and that hook of hamate fractures are prone to symptomatic non-union, resulting in chronic ulnar wrist pain. Prompt diagnosis and immobilisation/fixation may minimise such complications. Read More

Augmented hamate replacement arthroplasty for fracture-dislocations of the proximal interphalangeal joints in 12 patients.

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2017 Oct 8;42(8):799-802. Epub 2017 May 8.

Paul Brand Centre for Hand Surgery & Peripheral Nerve Surgery, Christian Medical College & Hospital, Vellore, India.

We report clinical outcomes in 12 patients with hemi-hamate replacement arthroplasty combined with volar plate arthroplasty. The volar plate was reattached using trans-osseous sutures to reconstruct the ligament-box complex after hamate grafting to augment the stability of the proximal interphalangeal joint. Ten patients had improved joint movement from a mean of 14° before surgery to a mean of 77° at a minimum follow-up of 2 years. Read More

Scaphocapitate Syndrome With Associated Trans-Scaphoid, Trans-Hamate Perilunate Dislocation: A Case Report and Description of Surgical Fixation.

Hand (N Y) 2017 03 23;12(2):NP27-NP31. Epub 2016 Sep 23.

Centro Medico Guerra Mendez, Valencia, Venezuela.

Perilunate fracture dislocations are often associated with fractures of the distal pole of the scaphoid or the proximal pole of the capitate. However, the combination of perilunate dislocation with multiple carpal fractures and associated scaphocapitate syndrome is very rare. We report a unique case of scaphocapitate fracture syndrome with perilunate dislocation and fracture of the hamate resulting from a high-energy injury to the wrist during a dirt-bike competition.

Proximal Scaphoid Pole Reconstruction Utilizing Ipsilateral Proximal Hamate Autograft.

Hand (N Y) 2016 12 3;11(4):495-499. Epub 2016 Mar 3.

Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

Fractures of the proximal pole of the scaphoid can be difficult to heal because of its limited vascular supply. Furthermore, nonunion with avascular necrosis and secondary fragmentation makes surgical reconstruction a challenging procedure. We describe a technique and report the outcome of a proximal hamate autograft to treat a proximal pole scaphoid nonunion with avascular necrosis. Read More

Comprehensive Hand Center, University of Michigan, North Campus Research Complex, 2800 Plymouth Road, Building 14 G200, Ann Arbor, MI 48109, USA.

A thorough understanding of the swing phases and mechanisms of injury in golf allows accurate diagnosis, treatment, and future prevention of injuries. Recommended initial treatment starts with cessation of practice to rest the wrist, a splint or orthotic brace, and nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug medication with corticosteroid injection and swing modification. Pisiform excision is the best treatment of the most severe chronic cases of pisiform ligament complex syndrome. Read More

Pulling Harder than the Hamate Tolerates: Evaluation of Hamate Injuries in Rock Climbing and Bouldering.

Wilderness Environ Med 2016 Dec 26;27(4):492-499. Epub 2016 Oct 26.

Department of Sports Orthopedics, Sports Medicine, Sports Traumatology, Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, Klinikum Bamberg, Bamberg, Germany (Drs Lutter and Schöffl); Department of Trauma and Orthopedic Surgery, Friedrich Alexander University, Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany (Dr Schöffl).

Objective: Hamate hook fractures are rare injuries, comprising 2% to 4% of all carpal fractures. Climbing athletes seem to be affected more frequently than others, as they strain the passive and active anatomical structures of their hands and fingers to maximum capacity during training or competing. This stress is transmitted to the hook of the hamate by tightened flexor tendons, which creates high contact pressure to the ulnar margin of the carpal tunnel. Read More

Treatment of unstable proximal interphalangeal joint fractures with hemi-hamate osteochondral autografts.

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2017 Feb 22;42(2):188-193. Epub 2016 Oct 22.

1 Institut Chirurgical de la Main et du Membre Supérieur, Villeurbanne, France.

The primary aim of this study was to assess the clinical and radiological results after hemi-hamate resurfacing arthroplasty in patients with acute or chronic unstable fractures of the base of the middle phalanx and to describe technical features that can facilitate the surgical procedure. Hemi-hamate arthroplasties were done in 19 patients (mean age 39 years) with an isolated fracture at the base of the middle phalanx that involved more than 40% of the articular surface. We assessed ten chronic cases (treated >6 weeks after fracture) and nine acute ones (<6 weeks) at a mean of 24 months. Read More

Closed Rupture of the Flexor Tendon Secondary to Sclerosis of the Hook of the Hamate: A Report of Two Cases.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2016 10;21(3):405-9

* Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Aizawa Hospital, Matsumoto, Japan.

Closed flexor tendon ruptures in the little finger can be caused by fracture or nonunion of the hook of the hamate, but no case of the disorder secondary to the sclerosis and thinning of the hamate hook has been reported. We report two rare cases with this complication due to rough surface of the hamate hook. Carpal tunnel view radiographs and computed tomography showed the sclerosis and thinning of the hook.

Transtriquetral perihamate fracture-dislocation: case report.

Rev Bras Ortop 2016 Jul-Aug;51(4):471-4. Epub 2016 Jul 4.

Universidade Federal de Goiás (UFG), Faculdade de Medicina, Goiânia, GO, Brazil.

The wrist is a region that is very vulnerable to injuries of the extremities. Among these injuries, fractures of the pyramidal bone (or triquetrum) in association with dislocation of the hamate and carpal instability are uncommon. They are generally correlated with high-energy trauma and may be associated with neurovascular deficits, muscle-tendon disorders, skin lesions or injuries to other carpal bones. Read More
