Druj instability implants
Use of a silicone rubber capping implant following resection of the ulnar head. Multi-component implants are, in our view, Type 3 implants, and they consist of a radial component replacing the sigmoid notch, and an ulna component fixed to the ulna shaft replacing the ulna head. Reconstruction of the dorsal ligament of the triangular fibrocartilage complex. We carried out a primary search through PubMed and the Cochrane Library. Open Med ; 3 J Hand Surg [Am] ; 38 MoranM. Triangular fibrocartilage complex tear following sports injury.
A severely painful, dysfunctional, or destroyed distal radio-ulnar joint (DRUJ). In Type 2 implants radiological DRUJ instability was reported in three papers.
Total DRUJ joint replacement with sigmoid notch resurfacing and distal ulna. A difference of 5 mm was defined as a sign of dorsal implant instability whereas a.
Hypothesis: The Aptis total DRUJ prosthesis is a semiconstrained implant designed for treatment of DRUJ arthritis and instability.
Manufacturer not declared. There was no evidence of ulnar stem or sigmoid notch loosening Figs. Wrist arthrodesis. We attempted to clarify whether the authors were involved as inventors, developers or producers.
Preliminary Experience with a New Total Distal Radioulnar Joint Replacement
Recognizing the importance of preserving, the DRUJ complex has led to several alternatives or supplements to the Darrach procedure.
Distal radioulnar joint arthroplasty with implants a systematic review
It seems that DRUJ implants have good potential to improve Instability is not uncommon with ulna head-only implants, but they cause fewer.
Postoperative radiographs showed appropriate alignment of the DRUJ, with well-seated implants. Postoperative assessment included range of motion, grip strength, pain, and radiographic evaluation.
The risk of severe complications — deep infection and instability — is small with the available implants. Of the analysed implants: Table 1.
Manufacturer not declared. An average VAS decrease of 5 points was seen amongst the four patients. The implant is then pressed into position and a cancellous bone screw is then placed into the sigmoid component firmly fixing it to the distal radius.
