The position of the fused wrist was targeted at 10-20 degrees of extension and 5-10 degrees of ulnar deviation, which are thought to be preferable for patient satisfaction and the prevention of further ulnar deviation of the phalanges [9-11].
Researchers saw one mild and three moderate implant-related adverse events during the study, including one in a patient who experienced ulnar deviation and needed a new joint replacement, one in a patient who dislocated the implant of the little finger a few weeks after insertion, and one in a patient who experienced sepsis in the joints 6 years after insertion and needed replacements for two implants.
Provocative testing with a pronated forearm and a flexed and ulnar-deviated wrist may exacerbate symptoms, (12,42) and Finkelstein's maneuver (isolated ulnar deviation at the wrist to elicit pain over the first dorsal wrist compartment) and Phalen's test may elicit false-positive results.
