In-vivo three-dimensional motion analysis of the wrist during dart-throwing motion after midcarpal fusion and radioscapholunate fusion


Reissner, Lisa; Politikou, Olga; Fischer, Gabriella; Calcagni, Maurizio (2020). In-vivo three-dimensional motion analysis of the wrist during dart-throwing motion after midcarpal fusion and radioscapholunate fusion. Journal of Hand Surgery, European Volume, 45(5):501-507.

Abstract

We recorded the dart-throwing motion and basic motion tasks in patients following radioscapholunate fusion and midcarpal fusion with a three-dimensional motion capture system in vivo, using digital infrared cameras to track the movement of reflective skin markers on the hand and forearm. During the dart-throwing motion, 20 healthy volunteers showed a median range of motion of 107°. As expected, patients had significantly reduced wrist range of motion during basic motion tasks and dart-throwing motion compared with the healthy controls, except for ulnar flexion occurring in the dart-throwing motion in patients treated by midcarpal fusion and radial deviation after midcarpal fusion or radioscapholunate fusion. In addition, patients who had undergone radioscapholunate fusion had significantly reduced range of motion during dart-throwing motion compared with patients after midcarpal fusion.
