Repositioning osteotomy for intra-articular malunion of distal radius with radiocarpal and/or distal radioulnar joint subluxation.
For this reason, communication between the radiocarpal and midcarpal compartments during fluoroscopic or MR arthrograms does not necessarily represent a symptomatic finding or reflect a traumatic tear of the ligament.
Case 1--A 54-year-old man with a history of chronic hepatitis B since childhood without regular follow-up and a four-year history of ankylosing spondylitis initially presented with numbness and pain in his right arm and arthralgia in his right first metacarpophalangeal and left radiocarpal joints.
At the wrist, RA leads to soft-tissue swelling around the radiocarpal joint and may result in prominence of the ulna styloid and the dinner-fork deformity (due to volar subluxation of the carpus in relation to the radius).
Scapholunate instability (SLI) (also known as scapholunate dissociation or rotary subluxation of the scaphoid) is caused by a tear in the interosseous ligaments of the lunate, scaphoid and the capitate bone with a tear in the dorsal radiocarpal ligaments by acute dorsifexion injury or fractures of the distal radius.
For each subject, two units were securely strapped together and attached to the body as a single piece at each potential site: superior to the radiocarpal joint (wrist), the iliac crest (waist), and superior to the lateral malleolus (ankle).
Loss of extension and ulnar deviation at the radiocarpal joints are often the first limitations noted.
Of the 27 patients, 6 of them required additional procedures: 5 radiocarpal arthrodeses and 1 DRUJ prosthesis.
Some of the radiologic findings include joint effusion and soft-tissue swelling at the time of the pseudogout attacks, fractures in the surrounding bones; eg, tibia/carpal collapse due to radiocarpal osteoarthritis, also known as scapholunate advanced collapse of wrist; MCP joint involvement, and intervertebral disk calcification.
Ostlie and associates estimated the prevalence of upper extremity loss at or proximal to the radiocarpal joint to be 11.
