Lissy holds an inventor patent for the Stackable Cage System for carpectomy
Another procedure is proximal row carpectomy
, in which the row of arthritic wrist bones closest to the forearm is removed.
presenting after 6 weeks, the fracture is consolidated, bony union is achieved and original fracture line is difficult to recreate, hence the treatment of these malunions is intra-articular osteotomies particularly in young, active individuals or the salvage procedures (limited carpal arthrodesis, total wrist arthrodesis, proximal row carpectomy
, wrist denervation, and wrist arthroplasty) for individual with severe cartilage degeneration, low functionl demand and elderly.
If the scaphoid, lunate, or triquetrum is affected, proximal row carpectomy
(PRC) or complete excision of the involved bone combined with an intercarpal fusion is the method of choice [20-22].
In advanced stages of kienbocks disease salvage surgeries like lunate replacement, lunate excision, proximal row carpectomy
, limited carpal fusion, and wrist fusion has been described without any strong evidence supporting any one procedure.
23) Interventions included radial osteotomy, vascularized bone graft, carpectomy
, and total wrist athrodesis.
During his stay in hospital he underwent a string of operations, including facial reconstruction, an operation to insert eight metal plates into his forehead, and a carpectomy
, in which three bones were removed from his broken wrist to allow him to partially use it again.
25) Rettig and Raskin assessed long-term outcomes after proximal row carpectomy
for chronic perilunate dislocations in a group of 12 patients untreated or dislocated for at least 8 weeks.
Two common operations for wrist arthritis are intercarpal fusion (a partial fusion of the small wrist bones) and proximal row carpectomy
, or PRC (removal of the first row of carpal bones).
and fusion in adult acquired hand spasticity.
Wrick JD et al performed proximal row carpectomy
for SLAC and were successful in preserving joint motion1.
for diseases of the proximal row.
