The current evidence-based management of distal radial fractures: UK perspectives.

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2019 Apr 16:1753193419843201. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

1 Academic Team of Musculoskeletal Surgery, Leicester General Hospital, Leicester, UK.

Distal radial fractures are extremely common injuries, yet many basic questions remain unanswered about their optimum management. Recently in the United Kingdom several guideline development groups have produced national standards and best-practice guidelines based on review of the best available evidence and expert knowledge. All guideline groups agree that when surgery is needed for dorsally displaced distal radial fractures, that can be reduced closed, K-wire fixation and cast immobilization, should be offered.

Madelung's deformity: capitate-related versus ulna-related measurement methods.

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2019 Feb 27:1753193419832233. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

1 Orthopedic Department, AL-Azhar University, Cairo, Egypt.

Several investigators have defined measurements for Madelung's deformity based on the distal radius or on the longitudinal ulnar axis to avoid the distorted distal radius and its lunate fossa. However, errors may occur in severe cases because of ulnar deformity and displacement. We quantified seven established measurements for Madelung's deformity relying on the central axis of the capitate. Read More

A four-dimensional-CT study of in vivo scapholunate rotation axes: possible implications for scapholunate ligament reconstruction.

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2019 Feb 27:1753193419830924. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

1 Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam UMC, The Netherlands.

Additional fixation of the palmar scapholunate interosseous ligament has been advocated to improve the long-term results of dorsal scapholunate interosseous ligament reconstruction. To investigate the validity of this approach, we determined normal scapholunate motion patterns and calculated the location of the scapholunate rotation axis. We hypothesized that the optimal location of the scapholunate interosseous ligament insertion could be determined from the scapholunate rotation axis. Read More

Kirschner Wires Versus Titanium Plates and Screws in Management of Unstable Phalangeal Fractures: A Randomized, Controlled Clinical Trial.

J Hand Surg Am 2019 Feb 22. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Trauma, Suez Canal University Hospitals, Ismailia, Egypt.

Purpose: To compare clinical, radiological and functional outcomes of percutaneous K-wires and lateral titanium plates and screws in the management of unstable extra-articular proximal and middle phalangeal fractures.

Methods: In a randomized controlled clinical trial, 40 patients with unstable transverse, long oblique or spiral diaphyseal fractures of the proximal and middle phalanges were divided into 2 groups: the K-wire group (20 patients), which included 12 proximal and 8 middle phalangeal fractures fixed by percutaneous K-wires; and the plate group (20 patients), which included 13 proximal and 7 middle phalangeal fractures treated with open reduction and internal fixation with a lateral titanium plate and screws. The patients were observed for at least 6 months (mean [range], 6. Read More

Technique of Tendon Interposition Arthroplasty for Chronic Volar Dislocation of the Distal Radioulnar Joint.

J Hand Surg Am 2019 Feb 22. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, OH. Electronic address:

Volar distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) dislocations are uncommon wrist injuries. Failed diagnosis or treatment can result in irreversible damage to the articulating surfaces and ultimately lead to chronic degenerative arthritis. When the DRUJ is reducible, and the cartilage is preserved, ligament reconstruction and ulnar osteotomy are surgical options for residual wrist instability or pain. Read More
