Trends in the Utilization of Total Wrist Arthroplasty versus Wrist Fusion for Treatment of Advanced Wrist Arthritis.

Total wrist arthroplasty (TWA) provides the requisite range of motion to accomplish activities of daily living, especially for low-demand patients with bilateral wrist arthritis. However, there are no...

pH and metal concentration of synovial fluid of osteoarthritic joints and joints with metal replacements.

Due to degradation and metal dissolution during articulation of metal joint replacements the chemical periprosthetic environment may change. The aim was to establish whether metal replacements cause t...

Repeated metal ion measurement in patients with bilateral metal on metal (ASR™) hip replacements.

Blood metal ion measurements have become a cornerstone in the surveillance of metal-on-metal (MoM) hip replacements. Interpretation of these levels in patients with bilateral MoM hip replacements, how...

The angular course of the median nerve in the distal forearm and its anatomical importance in preventing nerve injury in a modern era of carpal tunnel release.

OBJECTIVE A thorough understanding of anatomy is critical for successful carpal tunnel release. Several texts depict the median nerve (MN) as taking a course parallel to the long axis of the forearm (...

Physical activity using wrist-worn accelerometers: comparison of dominant and non-dominant wrist.

The purpose of this study was to determine whether there is a difference in physical activity assessment between a wrist-worn accelerometer at the dominant or non-dominant arm. The secondary purpose w...

Hospital for Special Surgery Shoulder Arthroplasty Cohort

Total joint replacements are some of the most successful medical devices developed over the last fifty years. They enable millions of people to remain ambulatory and pain free, with minim...

Assessment of Arthroscopy in Patients Undergoing Wrist Fracture

The use of arthroscopy with the surgery of wrist fractures has a great health and economic impact (prolongs the time of surgery, requires adequately trained personnel, increases the time a...

Shoulder, or Elbow, or Wrist: What Should we Train First After a Stroke?

We will test on persons with chronic impairment due to stroke: 1. whether the order in which robot therapy is delivered influences outcomes (shoulder-and-elbow before wrist vs. wri...

Cast Versus Splint in Children With Acceptably Angulated Wrist Fractures

The study will compare the effectiveness of a prefabricated wrist splint with thermoplast reinforcements versus a short arm cast in skeletally immature children. The hypothesis is that th...

Evaluation of Motion in the Arthritic Wrist Joint

The scaphotrapeziotrapezoid (STT) joint is a dome shaped joint in the radial wrist that is important in transfer of load from the thumb and radial hand to the scaphoid and the radioscaphoi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Injuries to the wrist or the wrist joint.

The articulations extending from the WRIST distally to the FINGERS. These include the WRIST JOINT; CARPAL JOINTS; METACARPOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and FINGER JOINT.

Prosthetic replacements for arms, legs, and parts thereof.

Devices, usually alloplastic, surgically inserted into or onto the jawbone, which support a single prosthetic tooth and serve either as abutments or as cosmetic replacements for missing teeth.

Disease involving the ULNAR NERVE from its origin in the BRACHIAL PLEXUS to its termination in the hand. Clinical manifestations may include PARESIS or PARALYSIS of wrist flexion, finger flexion, thumb adduction, finger abduction, and finger adduction. Sensation over the medial palm, fifth finger, and ulnar aspect of the ring finger may also be impaired. Common sites of injury include the AXILLA, cubital tunnel at the ELBOW, and Guyon's canal at the wrist. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51 pp43-5)
