We examined the frequency of associated chondral and ligament lesions in distal fractures of the radius in young adults (men 20–60 years, women 20–50 years). Fifty initially displaced fractures were examined arthroscopically. Chondral lesions were found in 16 patients (32%). All patients but...
The use of “spare part” flaps from a non-replantable limb to cover amputation stumps in the upper extremity preserves limb length, provides durable coverage and sensation and will avoid additional donor site morbidity. We have studied the blood supply of the forearm based on the radial...
We have studied the anatomy of the structures superficial to the trapeziometacarpal joint in cadavers in order to define safe entry points for arthroscopy of the joint.
We report an atypical case of nodular sarcoidosis involving both hands. The pattern of extensive involvement of all digits with lesions extending into the pulp spaces has not been reported previously. The diagnosis of sarcoidosis should be considered even in patients presenting with clinically...
In children with Erb’s palsy who do not recover fully, the most common residual deformity is internal rotation-adduction contracture of the shoulder. Surgical correction of this contracture is described in this paper in 12 consecutive patients by combined Sever’s release of the shoulder and...
The metacarpophalangeal pattern (MCPP) profile analysis is a method of comparing the length of each of the 19 tubular bones of the hand on the X-ray with the standard length in the normal population according to age and sex. An MCPP plot is a graphic illustration of the MCPP analysis. It is not...
A number of solutions are presented for the problem of over-tight rings particularly in patients with deforming arthropathies of the hand. Rings can be adapted by various methods to allow them to be worn on deformed fingers. An illustrative case is reported.
Wrist ganglia were randomly allocated for conservative treatment by either aspiration or aspiration and injection of steroid. Both treatment methods had 33% success rates. Almost all ganglia which recurred after one aspiration did not resolve with further aspirations. After aspiration and...
A case is reported in which the dorsal and palmar aspects of the fingers in a severely crushed hand were covered by combining a pedicled Scarpa’s fascia flap and a groin flap. Secondary heterotopic finger transposition was additionally performed to restore satisfactory hand function. An...
