Radial club hand (RCH) is a rare congenital deformity leading in several functional and psychological problems. However, our knowledge about the long-term functional outcomes of treating RCH is limited. In current study, we investigated the outcomes of centralization and pollicization using second or third metacarpal bone in RCH patients.

Radial club hand is characterized by radial deviation of the hand, as a result of hypoplasia or absence of the radius.
Dorsal complex cutaneotendinous lesions of the hand represent a reconstructive challenge. The use of composite microvascular flaps and vascularized tendon grafts represent the gold-standard. The radia...
Axillary plexus blockade is a common technique in clinical practice with a well-known pattern of structures around the brachial artery. Historically, the only proper response to radial nerve stimulati...
: Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a chronic autoimmune disease causing complex hand disability. A reliable tool for hand function assessment in SSc is the Cochin Hand Functional Disability Scale (CHFS). M...

Traditionally, coronary angiograms are performed through the radial artery which is accessed above the palm of the 'right' hand. In recent years, some cardiologists are performing this pro...

Transradial coronary procedures are gaining in popularity worldwide. A possible complication of transradial approach is the occlusion of the radial artery that in most cases is asymptomati...
The purpose of this study is to determine if there is a difference in the size and the depth of the radial artery at the access points for established radial and new distal radial approach...
Disease involving the RADIAL NERVE. Clinical features include weakness of elbow extension, elbow flexion, supination of the forearm, wrist and finger extension, and thumb abduction. Sensation may be impaired over regions of the dorsal forearm. Common sites of compression or traumatic injury include the AXILLA and radial groove of the HUMERUS.
A major nerve of the upper extremity. In humans the fibers of the radial nerve originate in the lower cervical and upper thoracic spinal cord (usually C5 to T1), travel via the posterior cord of the brachial plexus, and supply motor innervation to extensor muscles of the arm and cutaneous sensory fibers to extensor regions of the arm and hand.
The first digit on the radial side of the hand which in humans lies opposite the other four.
A procedure to surgically correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS by cutting radial slits into the CORNEA to change its refractive properties.
Disease involving the median nerve, from its origin at the BRACHIAL PLEXUS to its termination in the hand. Clinical features include weakness of wrist and finger flexion, forearm pronation, thenar abduction, and loss of sensation over the lateral palm, first three fingers, and radial half of the ring finger. Common sites of injury include the elbow, where the nerve passes through the two heads of the pronator teres muscle (pronator syndrome) and in the carpal tunnel (CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME).
Congenital conditions are those which are present from birth. They include structural deformities or loss of function in organs such as the <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->heart, gut or skeletal system. They can be corrected by <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->surgery, m...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
