PRC may be better for older patients because it has a quicker recovery period, gives equal grip strength to intercarpal fusion and usually results in more wrist motion," Dr.
Watson HK et al did limited triscaphoid intercarpal ortho disease for rotatory subluxation of scaphoid (5).
The vessels on the dorsal aspect of the wrist originate from the dorsal intercarpal arch, and occasionally from the dorsal branch of the interosseous artery.
The diagnosis of intercarpal ligamentous injury in the absence of a gross deformity is difficult with plain radiographs, ultrasound, arthrograms, and even magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
One option, intercarpal fusion, maintains motion at the radiocarpal joint.
