Transhamate periscaphoid axial radial fracture dislocation of the carpus


Schweizer, A; Kammer, E (2008). Transhamate periscaphoid axial radial fracture dislocation of the carpus. The Journal of Hand Surgery, 33(2):210-212.

Abstract

We report a compression injury of the wrist with a unique pattern of axial radial dislocation of the carpus. Reposition was through a dorsal and palmar approach; all disrupted ligaments were sutured, and fixation of the carpal bones was performed with K-wires. The functional result was 70% of range of motion and 75% of strength with minimal symptoms.
