Use of the Triquetrum-Hamate Portal in Four-Corner Wrist Fusion: A Useful Technical Trick.

Rev Bras Ortop (Sao Paulo) 2022 Apr 27;57(2):348-350. Epub 2022 May 27.

Departamento de Ortopedia e Traumatologia, Serviço de Cirurgia da Mão e Microcirurgia, Santa Casa de Misericórdia, São Paulo, Brasil.

Arthroscopy-assisted partial wrist-fusion techniques are becoming more popular nowadays. It became clearer that avoiding the violation of important ligament and tendinous structures - which is impossible when using the classic open techniques - enables a more biological approach, which is essential for faster healing and improvement in function. We describe the use of the triquetrum-hamate (TH) portal, which is seldomly applied in routine arthroscopic techniques for hand and wrist surgery, as an accessory portal to better perform anterior midcarpal debridement in four-corner fusion.

Editorial Commentary: Arthroscopic Capsular Repair of Wrist Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex Tears: Beware That Apparent Isolated Atzei Class 1 (Isolated Distal Component) Tears May Include a Proximal Component.

Arthroscopy 2022 05;38(5):1463-1465

Korea University.

Accumulating knowledge about the anatomy of the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) and its function has revealed that the foveal insertion of the TFCC plays a key role in distal radioulnar joint stability rather than the superficial fibers that insert into the ulnar styloid. Recently, the interest in torn peripheral TFCC repair has been shifting from capsular repair for Atzei class 1 to foveal repair for Atzei class 2 or 3. Most acute Atzei class 1 tears spontaneously heal without surgical repair; in contrast, in cases of sustained pain and distal radioulnar joint instability even after successful Atzei class 1 repair, the unrecognized proximal component TFCC tear concomitant with a distal component TFCC tear may exist and appropriate treatment for the proximal component TFCC tear should be combined.

Julia A V Nuelle

Arthroscopy 2022 04;38(4):1154-1155

The literature to guide clinical-decision making for the treatment of symptomatic distal radioulnar joint instability in the setting of distal radius fracture is mixed, with some advocating for surgical treatment at the time of fracture fixation and others reporting acceptable clinical outcomes with conservative management. Given this, it can be challenging to determine which treatment strategy to employ for each individual patient. For injuries that are the result of high-energy trauma or when there is persistent instability lasting 6 months or longer after fracture fixation, surgical intervention may be needed. Read More
