There were no significant differences in mobility of the radiocarpal joint between women with CTS and healthy women, although KDM was significantly impaired.
In addition, the PL muscle tendon was measured from its origin to the radiocarpal joint line and the length of the RCE muscle tendons and their radial half from their origin to their insertion.
An experimental study of the radiocarpal joint by arthrography.
The ligaments spanning the radiocarpal joint to connect the forearm bones with the carpal bones become slack and taut as the wrist is deviated and the forearm is rotated in different directions (Cailliet, 1982).
It originates from the radial artery 5 cm proximal to the radiocarpal joint. (29) It is most successfully used for AV N of the proximal pole in cases that lack collapse, humpback deformity, and carpal instability.
The use of retrograde or, such as in our case, antegrade inserted headless compression screws for 4CF has proven to be a suitable and reliable option with an union rate up to 94% [23-26], but hardware migration into radiocarpal joint despite complete union of 4CF, such as in our case, is a concern.
The carpal joint is composed of three horizontal levels of articulations; the antebrachiocarpal or radiocarpal joint is proximal joint located between the distal articular surface of radius and the proximal row of carpal bones.
The dorsal approach allows for direct visualization of intercarpal and radiocarpal joints. It allows for thorough irrigation and removal of loose osteochondral fragments, assessments of osteochondral lesions, and full assessment of the ligamentous injuries.
Signs and symptoms include reduction of pronosupination, both active and passive, usually without pain, and occasionally associated with a reduction of range of movement of the radiocarpal joint [1, 3, 6].
Care was taken to avoid screws penetrating the radiocarpal joint and screw tips protruding excessively over the dorsal aspect.
Calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease (pseudogout) may be found in EOA patients.[2] Involvement of the radiocarpal joint is characteristic of the arthropathy associated with calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease.
Gentle wrist range of motion demonstrated excellent stability of the construct with no signs of impingement at the radiocarpal joint (Figure 3).
