      Authors: Gulraj S. Matharu, Ian T. Gatt, Rachel Delaney, Michael Loosemore, Michael J. Hayton
      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      We describe our experience of managing extensor hood injuries in boxers (57 fingers). The diagnosis was mostly clinical, with imaging only if the diagnosis was equivocal. The middle (61%) and index (26%) digits were most frequently injured. On exploration, 26% had no hood tear, however all required tenolysis from the adherent capsule. Of 42 hood tears, 15 were central splits between adjacent extensor tendons in the index or little fingers,15 tears were on the ulna side of the extensor tendon and 12 tears were on the radial side. A pseudobursa was encountered in 35%, capsular tears in 28% and chondral injury in one patient. Longitudinal curved metacarpophalangeal joint incisions were used, with hood repair performed in flexion using a locked running suture. Mean postoperative metacarpophalangeal joint flexion was 90°. Ninety-eight per cent returned to the same level of boxing at a mean of 8 months (range 1–24) from surgery. One finger was revised for re-rupture 6 months later. A reproducible technique for treating these injuries is described, with patients able to return to boxing with little risk of complications.Level of evidence: IV

      Authors: Lucille Auberson, Jean-Yves Beaulieu, Lionel Athlani
      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      We performed a cadaver study using seven fresh-frozen adult upper limbs to assess the impact of increasingly larger distal radial deformity in the sagittal plane on the range of motion in pronation/supination. Three palmar (20°, 30° and 40° angulations) and three dorsal (10°, 20° and 30° angulations) tilt deformities, without any radial shortening, were simulated by performing a radial osteotomy and using custom-made three-dimensional-printed anterior plates. We measured the maximum unconstrained pronation and supination before the osteotomy and after each induced deformation. There was a decrease in the median pronation and supination values for all palmar and dorsal tilt deformities. The pronation range was more impaired than the supination range, and dorsal tilt deformities caused the greatest loss in forearm rotation. Our results suggest that forearm rotation in both pronation and supination is reduced as soon as 10° to 20° distal radial deformity occurs in the palmar or dorsal direction.

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      Distal oblique bundle (DOB) reinforcement for treatment of post-traumatic bidirectional instability of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) has previously been reported. The objective of the current study was to assess the incidence of symptomatic graft failure and the need for secondary wrist procedures at a longer follow-up in an updated patient cohort of 27 patients with 28 DOB reinforcement procedures. Quick Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (QuickDASH) and patient-rated wrist/hand evaluation (PRWHE) outcome measures were also evaluated. At median 82 months follow-up, pre- to postoperative QuickDASH score improved from a mean of 62 (SD 14) to 31 (SD 22) (p

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      Pollicization has been a very successful procedure in the treatment of specific types of hypoplastic thumb. Although much has remained the same since early descriptions of the procedure in the 1800s and 1900s, refinements over the years have made it safer and more predictable. Over the years at our institution we have studied, modified and refined our incisions to produce a new thumb that is aesthetically pleasing with excellent function. We present our technique for pollicization along with pearls and pitfalls we have discovered.

      Authors: Tim Hems
      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      A prospective database study was undertaken to investigate the severity and progression of elbow and forearm contractures in patients with obstetric brachial plexus injury. One-hundred and fifty-nine patients, who had not undergone nerve repair (mean age 12 years at last follow-up) (56 Narakas Group 1, 66 Group 2, 27 Group 3, 10 Group 4) were studied. Mean fixed flexion of the elbow at last follow-up was 13° for Group 1, 15° for Group 2, 19° for Group 3 and 24° for Group 4. Severe contracture of 30° or more developed in 31 children (mean age 118 months), with poorer active shoulder abduction being a significant risk factor. Onset of contracture was before the age of 5 years but did not increase substantially beyond 12 years. Active and passive pronation and supination tended to decrease with increasing injury severity. Seventeen children developed severe restriction of passive pronation (supination contracture) (mean age 69 months), and 12 developed severe restriction of passive supination at a mean of 137 months.Level of evidence: III

      Authors: Kay Maddison, Lin Perry, Deborah Debono
      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      This integrative review investigated reports of psychological impact and sequelae of traumatic hand injuries. A systematic search using Medline, PsychINFO, PubMed, EMBASE, CINAHL and hand-searching methods was conducted from 2008 to 2020. Nine included articles with a total of 503 participants were reported in prospective cross-sectional or longitudinal cohort studies. Depression and anxiety were common, affecting between 7% and 71% and between 23% and 71% of patients, respectively. Post-traumatic stress disorder affected between 3% and 95% of patients. Factors reported predicting psychological sequelae of hand injuries included injury severity, pain, limb dysfunction, negative perceptions of injured limbs, suboptimal coping mechanisms and limited social support. Symptoms persisted for protracted periods of follow-up but broadly attenuated after 3 months. We conclude that the high prevalence and enduring nature of psychological symptoms demonstrate an urgent need for further research to optimize treatment.Level of evidence: III

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      The interosseous membrane of the forearm is an essential structure for the stability of the forearm skeleton, the most important part being the central band. The purpose of this study was to determine if shear wave elastography, a non-invasive ultrasound technique, can be used to measure shear wave speed in the central band and quantify stiffness. Fifteen healthy adult subjects were included (30 forearms). The participants forearms were positioned on an articulated plate, with their hand in neutral, pronated and then supinated positions of 30°, 60° and 90°. The shear wave speed was highest in 90° pronation (4.4 m/s (SD 0.3)) and 90° supination (4.4 m/s (SD 0.27)) indicating maximum stiffness in these positions. Its minimum value was in the neutral position, and either in 30° pronation or supination (3.5 m/s (SD 0.3)). Intra- and interobserver agreement was excellent, regardless of probe positioning or forearm mobilization. This study presents a reliable shear wave elastography measurement protocol to describe the physiological function of the central band of the interosseous membrane in healthy adults.Level of evidence: IV

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      Mirror hand-ulnar dimelia (MHUD) is rare congenital disorder with a wide range of clinical and radiographic features. The current nomenclature is confusing and the existing classification systems focus mainly on morphology without providing much guidance for treatment. The goal of this study was to review the clinical and radiological features in 13 children with MHUD that were treated at a single institution. Our findings support the hypothesis that MHUD typically involves the entire upper limb, and the treatment plan should consider the predictors of function at each limb segment. A logical and comprehensive management algorithm is proposed.Level of evidence: IV

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      We report a retrospective study over a 15-year period, between 2005 and 2020, evaluating clinical and functional outcomes in patients who underwent reconstruction of the distal radius with an endoprosthetic replacement following excision of both malignant and aggressive benign bone tumours. Data was collected retrospectively from a prospectively maintained electronic database, and prospectively via telephone patient consultation. Musculoskeletal Tumour Society and patient-rated wrist evaluation scores were assessed at a minimum of 1 year postoperatively. Of nine implants, five were arthrodeses and four were arthroplasties. One patient required amputation within 6 months for proximal metastatic disease. At last follow-up, eight patients subjectively reported good function. Five patients returned to high functionally demanding jobs. Mean Musculoskeletal Tumour Society and patient-rated wrist evaluation scores were 72% and 50/100, respectively. We conclude that distal radius endoprosthetic replacements offer acceptable functional outcomes and remain a viable option when biological reconstruction is not possible.Level of evidence: IV

      We report a retrospective study of 112 nerve transfers in 39 participants to investigate predictors of strength outcomes after nerve transfer surgery for upper limb reanimation in tetraplegia. We measured clinical and pre- and intraoperative neurophysiological assessment variables and compared them with strength outcomes 2 years after nerve transfer surgery. We found statistically significant improvement in Medical Research Council strength grades after nerve transfer surgery with lower cervical spine injuries (between one and two grades), lower donor nerve stimulation thresholds (half of a grade), greater motor evoked potential activity in recipient nerves (half of a grade) and greater muscle responses to intraoperative stimulation of donor (half of a grade) and recipient nerves (half of a grade).Level of evidence: III

      We analysed the relationship between serum metal ions, radiological periprosthetic osteolysis and the clinical features in a series of 25 patients treated with fourth-generation metal-on-polyethylene total wrist prostheses. The mean implant follow-up was 7 years. Our results show that titanium was the main elevated serum metal ion in patients with the prostheses that we used; elevated serum cobalt or chromium values were infrequent. The risk of loosening was higher in an implant older than 6 years, with more than five periprosthetic osteolysis points according to our radiograph zone system, and serum titanium values between 26 to 31 µg/L. The presence of metallosis pseudotumours does not guarantee but increases the risk of implant failure, which may be asymptomatic or associated with little pain.Level of evidence: IV

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      In this retrospective study we aimed to analyse the risk factors for complications after different methods of distal interphalangeal arthrodesis in the hand. Forty-four per cent were treated with K-wire/cerclage fixation, 46% with X-fuse® implants (Stryker GmbH, Selzach, Switzerland) and 10% with headless compression screws (HBS®-screw, KLS Martin Group, Tuttlingen, Germany). The median follow-up was 16 weeks (range 6–224). The overall complication incidence was 44% (minor complications 29% and major 15%). The logistic regression showed that osteoarthritis, revisional arthrodesis and smoking had a negative impact on the total complication incidence. A Cox-regression analysis showed that HBS®-screw arthrodesis was associated with a significantly lower incidence of major complications compared with K-wire/cerclage and X-Fuse®-arthrodesis. Revisional arthrodesis was five times more frequently connected with major complications than primary surgery. Smokers were three times more likely to experience major complications than non-smokers. We conclude that arthrodesis of the distal interphalangeal joint often leads to complications. Risk factors must be kept in mind.Level of evidence: III

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this study was to investigate the anatomical features of the lateral collateral complex (LCC) of the elbow in a Thai population. We dissected 56 cadaveric elbows and described the LCC three-dimensionally in sagittal and coronal planes. We found that the characteristics differed from previous reports in other ethnic populations. In the sagittal plane, the centre of the origin of the LCC was located 3 mm anteriorly and 4 mm inferiorly to the apex of the lateral humerus epicondyle, and in the coronal plane it was 4 mm deep. The vertical distance between the origin of the lateral ulnar collateral ligament (LUCL) and the lateral epicondyle and the distance from the LUCL insertion to the border of the ulnar bone differed significantly between sexes. These data may be useful for surgeons during reconstruction of injures to the LCC of the elbow.Level of evidence: V

      A multidisciplinary brachial plexus clinic has been a relatively new concept, offering different surgical speciality perspectives on the treatment of brachial plexus injuries. The resulting collaborative effort has proven to be greater than the sum of its parts. In this review, the history, philosophy of care, development/implementation and impact of a creation of a multidisciplinary brachial plexus team at the Mayo Clinic are detailed.

      We investigated the influence of cyclooxygenase (COX)-1 and COX-2 siRNAs delivered through a nanoparticle-gel system on the strength of flexor tendon repairs. Sixteen flexor digitorum profundus (FDP) tendons of chicken toes were transected, repaired and wrapped with gels to evaluate gel adherence. We found that the gel adhered to the tendon surface firmly. Next, 56 tendons were used in a first set of in vivo experiments to compare the therapeutic effects of different doses of COX siRNAs. Another 15 tendons were added in a second set to further assess the effects of a dosage of 12 μg. After 4 weeks, the mean strength of the repaired tendons increased most notably in the toes treated with 12 μg COX siRNAs, and the number of samples with low strength (

      We retrospectively compared 64 scaphoid reconstructions in cases that had not undergone previous surgery with 31 cases in which previous surgery had been performed. The characteristics of the groups were similar except that there were more smokers in the group without previous surgery and a more frequent use of vascularized bone grafts in the group with previous surgery. At final follow-up, 66 and 65 months, respectively, after reconstruction, union incidence was 89% and 90%. In patients with previous surgery, grip strength was higher but not when expressed in percent of the contralateral hand. There were no differences in pinch strength, active wrist motion, functional scores, carpal height or scapholunate angle. We conclude that repeat surgery to the scaphoid did not seem to be a major risk factor for the overall outcomes, keeping in mind that a vascularized bone graft was more frequently used for secondary reconstructions.Level of evidence: III

      On two occasions, five surgeons classified a cohort of 150 consecutive patients with congenital upper limb anomalies according to the Oberg–Manske–Tonkin classification (2020 update). We estimated reliability for the main anomaly code by means of Cohen’s kappa (Κ) for ten rater pairs for five common and easily distinguishable anomalies (Group 1), and for all the other anomalies (Group 2). Inter-rater reliability for all patients (n = 150) was substantial, almost perfect for Group 1 (n = 64), but only moderate for Group 2 (n = 86). Intra-rater reliability was higher for all groups. We suggest simplifications to the Oberg–Manske–Tonkin classification and highlight specific requirements for instructions to increase its reliability.Level of evidence: I

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      Brachydactyly Type D is a congenital condition of the thumb in which there is a short and broad thumbnail. Although the thumb function is often unaffected, some patients seek surgery for cosmetic improvement. This study aimed to describe our method of distraction lengthening to correct nail deformity in brachydactyly Type D. A total of 163 thumbs in 95 patients underwent this surgery between 2018 and 2021.The mean thumbnail length improved from 9 mm to 15 mm, with a mean percentage increase of 62%. The ratio of nail length to width changed from 0.6 to 1.1, which was equal to normal. The mean increased fingernail length/width ratio was 0.5, with a percentage change of 78%. No obvious surgical scar was observed. The thumb function was not significantly affected. We conclude that aesthetic correction of short nail deformity in brachydactyly Type D can be achieved by distraction lengthening with high satisfaction and without functional impairment.Level of evidence: IV

      The Trapeziometacarpal Arthrosis Symptoms and Disability questionnaire is a recently developed disease-specific instrument designed to measure patient-reported symptoms. Our aim was to establish a minimal clinically important difference for this questionnaire. This prospective study included 95 patients undergoing operative (n = 39) or non-operative (n = 56) treatments for primary trapeziometacarpal osteoarthritis. Patients completed a battery of tests including the Trapeziometacarpal Arthrosis Symptoms and Disability questionnaire at the initial clinic visit and follow-up visits. Two anchor-based methods were used to arrive at the minimal clinically important difference. Twenty-four scores met criteria for minimal clinically important change, with a median overall score rounding to 15 points. This finding is an important step in facilitating the application of this disease-specific instrument in practice.Level of evidenceIII

      The aim of our study was to compare the medium-term clinical and functional outcomes of early repair of a complete Zone 2B or 2C transection of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon associated with either the repair of the two slips of the flexor digitorum superficialis tendon, only one slip repaired (the other slip was resected) or no slips repaired (both slips were resected). The outcomes of these three repair techniques were compared based on the total active motion, residual flexion deformity of the proximal interphalangeal joint, Strickland’s formula and Tang classification, Disability of Arm Shoulder and Hand score and complications. The study reviewed 61 fingers (51 patients) at a mean follow-up of 89.5 months. There was no significant difference in finger mobility comparing the three techniques for management of flexor digitorum superficialis. All but one patient returned to work and the DASH score (mean 6.9) suggests that function does not appear to be greatly affected.Level of evidenceIII

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      The aim of this study was to present a classification of Poland syndrome deformities, which we hypothesized was simple, valid, reliable and useful in planning surgery. We retrospectively reviewed 74 patients with Poland syndrome treated in our centre between 1990 and 2019 (inclusive). The proposed classification comprised six types of ascending severity and was based on clinical and radiological findings. Agreement with the frequently used but more complex Catena classification was substantial (kappa 0.70), and interobserver reliability was close to perfect (kappa 0.87). The severity of the deformities according to this classification correlated well with the number of surgeries performed, except for Type 5, in which the result of surgery often is disappointing, and in Type 6, that is beyond the reach of surgical treatment. We conclude that this classification is useful in planning surgery and in advising parents on the surgical strategy.Level of evidenceIII

      The long-term outcomes of extension block pinning used to treat unstable dorsal fracture-dislocations of the proximal interphalangeal joint have been investigated in a single centre. Thirty-one patients (33 fingers) had a clinical and radiological assessment at a mean follow-up of 16 years. Excluding one joint salvaged with an arthrodesis, the mean active range of motion of the joints was 80° with a mean 5° extension deficit. The mean active range of motion of the distal interphalangeal joint was 64°. The mean Patient-Rated Wrist and Hand Evaluation score was 6, indicating, minimal disability. The mean numeric rating scale for overall subjective pain on a scale of 0–10 was 1 and was not associated with the active range of movement. The Kallman osteoarthritis score and the range of movement of the proximal interphalangeal joint had a negative association. The long-term outcomes were satisfactory and similar to the mid-term follow-up results of the same patient cohort reported 11 years earlier.Level of evidenceIV

Following reconstruction with the Spinner flap, the mean angle of the first and second metacarpal axis (M1M2) showed significant improvement from 42° to 61° indicating a wider first web space, and the postoperative mean angle of the thumb proximal phalanx to its metacarpal axis (M1P1) was reduced from 41° to 18°, indicative of a straighter thumb. Following reconstruction with a double-opposing Z-plasty, the mean M1M2 and M1P1 also improved from 38° to 52° and 18° to 9°, respectively. Rerouting of the APB with first web deepening is an efficient and reproducible procedure in improving thumb position.Level of evidenceIII

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      The aim of this study was to identify risk factors for reoperations after Zones 1 and 2 flexor tendon repairs. A multiple logistic regression model was used to identify risk factors from data collected via the Swedish national health care registry for hand surgery (HAKIR). The studied potential risk factors were age and gender, socio-economics and surgical techniques. Included were 1372 patients with injuries to 1585 fingers and follow-up of at least 12 months (median 37 IQR 27–56). Tendon ruptures occurred in 80 fingers and tenolysis was required in 76 fingers. Variables that affected the risk of rupture were age>25 years (p

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      This retrospective study reviewed 28 patients, aged 10 to 17 years, who underwent corrective osteotomy for malunion of the proximal phalangeal distal condyles at a mean of 9 weeks (range 2–52) from injury. There were 19 patients treated with K-wire and nine patients with locking plates. The two groups were comparable for trauma mechanism, fracture type, time delay from injury and the type of initial treatment. The K-wire group had a shorter duration of operation and shorter time to union than the plating group. For both groups, postoperative radiographs showed significant correction, which remained unchanged until the final follow-up (minimum 12 months), although greater residual coronal angulation was found in the K-wire group. The outcomes in 17 of the 28 patients were graded as excellent or good according to the Al-Qattan classification, with no difference between the groups. The complication rate was also similar between the groups, while the locking plate group had a higher rate of secondary surgery.Level of evidence: III

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      In small-area soft tissue defects of the fingers, venous flaps have the advantages of easy design and harvesting, and also a thin and flexible texture. Although the artery–vein–vein (A–V–V) pattern is the safest pattern, the tiny veins in the finger pulp make anastomosis difficult. We have designed a modified blood flow pattern flap using the dorsum of the foot as the donor site and anastomosing the U-shaped blood vessels in the venous flap with the two digital arteries in an artery–vein–artery (A–V–A) pattern to reconstruct the digital arterial arch without the need for venous anastomosis. Our study included 22 patients with 23 fingertip defects. In the 23 fingers, 18 flaps survived completely and four had only partial marginal necrosis. The donor site healed well without significant scar hyperplasia.Level of evidence: IV

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      We investigated two palmar approaches for screw fixation of acute scaphoid waist fractures: the conventional percutaneous or transtrapezial approach. Thirty cases who underwent operation from 2013 to 2021 were reviewed (conventional group, 15; transtrapezial approach group, 15). Cross-sections were constructed along the long axis of the scaphoid on postoperative computed tomography to evaluate the screw position, relative to the centre point in the distal-third, midwaist and proximal-third of the bone. The screw could be inserted centrally in the proximal and distal regions using the transtrapezial approach. In the conventional approach, the screw was inserted radially in the distal region, but tended to be positioned centrally in the midwaist and proximal regions. As central placement of the screw in the proximal fragment offers a biomechanical advantage, both approaches can be options for some fracture patterns, while for others, the fracture pattern could influence which approach is better.Level of evidence: IV

      Authors: Mauro Maniglio, Il Jung Park, Michael Kuenzler, Matthias A. Zumstein, Michelle H. McGarry, Thay Q. Lee
      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      Clinical studies suggest that even untreated basal ulnar styloid fractures may not affect patient outcomes. This may be due to the remaining parts of the distal radioulnar ligament still attached providing sufficient residual stability of the distal radioulnar joint. We tested this hypothesis in a biomechanical cadaveric model. Dorsopalmar translation of the distal radioulnar joint and forearm rotation were measured. Seventeen specimens were tested after a simulated ulnar styloid fracture including the fovea, followed by transection of the remaining palmar (n = 9) or dorsal (n = 8) portions of the distal radioulnar ligament and finally with all remnants transected. Rotation and translation both increased significantly after the final transection compared with the foveal fracture. The increase in translation was larger after transection of the dorsal remnants. We conclude that in an ulnar styloid fracture including the fovea, some ligament components are still attached to the ulnar head, giving residual stability to the distal radioulnar joint.

      Abstract: Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Ahead of Print.
      We aimed to develop a computerized adaptive testing (CAT) version of the 11 item Patient Evaluation Measure (PEM), using an item response theory model. This model transformed the ordinal scores into ratio-interval scores. We obtained PEM responses from 924 patients with trapeziometacarpal osteoarthritis to build a CAT model and tested its performance on a simulated cohort of 1000 PEM response sets. The CAT achieved high precision (median standard error or measurement 0.26) and reduced the number of questions needed for accurate scoring from 11 to median two. The CAT scores and item-response-theory-based 15-item PEM scores were similar, and a Bland–Altman analysis demonstrated a mean score difference of 0.2 between the CAT and the full-length PEM scores on a scale from 0 to 100. We conclude that the CAT substantially reduced the burden of the PEM while also harnessing the validity of item response theory scoring.

      This is the second of a two-part review article on the management of conflict injuries, focused on the reconstructive strategies for bone, nerve and soft tissue and to provide guidance on assessing and managing common complications associated with complex upper limb injuries. Following assessment and early surgical management, the conflict casualty will require further wound evaluation and planning prior to definitive reconstruction of limb injuries. Surgical management of the upper limb injury should aim, where possible, to preserve the limb and allow functional reconstruction. The principles of the second look procedure are to assess wound progression, further reduce the risk of infection and plan definitive reconstruction with adequate soft tissue cover. The prerequisites for successful surgical reconstruction are a stable patient, combined orthoplastic surgery expertise supported by physiotherapists and hand therapists.

      This prospective longitudinal study aimed to analyse the effect of partial wrist denervation on patient-reported outcomes, quality of life and objective function in symptomatic wrist osteoarthritis during the first year after surgery. Sixty consecutive patients underwent an anterior and posterior interosseous neurectomy during 2018–2020. Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand, Patient-Rated Wrist Evaluation, EuroQol-5D-3L, pain at rest and on load, and objective function were assessed preoperatively and 3, 6 and 12 months postoperatively. Generalized estimating equations were used to analyse the effect on the outcome variables. Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand, Patient-Rated Wrist Evaluation and pain scores improved significantly postoperatively with no decline over time, but no patient reported outcome measure reached the minimal clinically important difference. Quality of life, strength and range of motion did not improve. We found no complications. Seventeen patients needed further surgery during the study period. More studies are needed to evaluate whether denervation is truly effective or not.Level of evidence: II

      We retrospectively analysed characteristics of 39 patients who presented with septic arthritis of the wrist between January 2015 and June 2021. There was a significant positive correlation between the number of risk factors, such as immunosuppression or diabetes, with Pseudomonas arthritis but not with the number of operations needed to treat the infection or the length of hospitalization. The duration of symptoms before admission at our hospital, C-reactive protein values at admission and infection with Pseudomonas were significantly correlated with the length of hospitalization, but Pseudomonas was detected in one patient only. Staphylococci were the most frequently detected bacteria and significantly correlated with the number of operations needed for treatment. Normal white blood cell counts or C-reactive protein values were frequently encountered.Level of evidenceIII

      We dissected 192 fingers in 48 fresh cadaveric hands (23 right and 25 left hands from 26 female and 22 male donors) and analysed the incidence, location, length and structure of the five annular and three cruciform pulleys. No statistically significant differences were found between left and right or between male and female hands. The A1, A2 and A4 pulleys were present in all fingers, while the incidence of other pulleys varied. We found 32 different patterns of pulley combinations. The structure of the pulleys also varied. Most important was the variation of A1, which consisted of one to four separate rings. In 18% there was no gap between the A1 and A2 pulleys. A greater understanding of the anatomical variation of the pulley system is beneficial for hand surgeons performing open or percutaneous trigger finger releases and for radiologists examining the area sonographically.

      We evaluated the incidence of postoperative complications following anterior locking plate fixation of distal radial fractures. We investigated whether there is an association with the patient’s age, severity of the fracture or surgeon’s experience. The medical records of all patients treated with anterior locking plate for a distal radial fracture between 2016 and 2018 were retrospectively reviewed. Radiographs were evaluated regarding Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen/Orthopaedic Trauma Association (AO/OTA) classification, Soong grade and dorsal screw prominence. Six-hundred and three distal radial fractures treated with anterior locking plate fixation in 599 patients were included. The overall postoperative complication incidence was 11%. Secondary surgery was performed in 9%. No statistical significance in the incidence of complications was found regarding age, AO/OTA type or surgeon experience.Level of evidence: IV

      Hardware removal after ulna shortening osteotomy is common. We evaluated the association between plate location and hardware removal rate in 326 procedures in 321 patients with a median follow-up of 4.3 years (IQR 3.3) and corrected for confounding variables and did survival analyses. Complications were scored using the International Consortium for Health Outcome Measurement complications in Hand and Wrist Conditions tool. The 1-year and 5-year reoperation rates for hardware removal were 21% and 46% in the anterior group versus 37% and 64% in the dorsal group. Anterior plate placement was independently associated with a decreased immediate risk of hardware removal. Higher age, male sex and treatment on the dominant side were also associated with a reduced risk of hardware removal. We did not find a difference in hardware removal rates between freehand or jig-guided ulna shortening osteotomies. We noted perioperative problems in 3% of the procedures and complications in 20%.Level of evidence: III

      Our study described a computer-assisted, three-dimensional (3-D), planned surgical technique of a radial shortening osteotomy. The osteotomy of the distal radius was planned with computer assistance on 3-D bone models based on computed tomography data. The objective was to maximize the contact zone of the sigmoid notch with the ulnar head. Between 2012 and 2020 we treated 14 wrists in 11 patients with symptomatic ulnar-minus variance with a mean follow-up of 44 months (range 8 to 98) and a mean age of 28 years (range 19 to 38). Postoperatively, patients showed a decrease in pain at rest and during effort (numeric rating scale from 4.4 to 0 and 7.5 to 4.5, respectively). The range of motion postoperatively was similar to the contralateral side. Grip strength increased from 24 kg to 30 kg. The Disability of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand and the Patient-Rated Wrist Evaluation scores were 28 and 35 postoperatively, respectively. Our technique of 3-D computer-assisted distal radioulnar joint reconstruction led to a pain reduction and improvement of the hand function in patients with symptomatic ulnar-minus variance.Level of evidence: IV

      In this cadaveric study, we analysed digital images of dissected palms to define the location and length of superficial connections between the median and the ulnar nerves (Berrettini communicating branches). We found the connections present in 12 of 27 hands. We used a coordinate model to define their location relative to seven specified landmarks. The model revealed that the Berrettini communicating branches were positioned consistently, and we defined a high-risk zone in the palm that fully contained seven of the 12 connections, while others had minor projections outside the zone. We conclude that awareness of this high-risk zone in the palm can be of some help to reduce the risk of iatrogenic nerve injury, however, any operation in the palm must always be done with great care to visualize and protect any possible anatomically unusual structures.

      We evaluated the tendon length and excursion after extensor tendon grafting following ruptures at the distal radioulnar joint in eight patients. The mean patient age was 70.8 years (range 58 to 84), and the mean follow-up period was 63 months (range 12 to 129). Radiographic markers were placed on ends of the grafted tendon to assess changes in length and passive excursion. The mean length of the grafted tendon and mean passive excursion were 68.2 mm and 4.4 mm immediately after tendon grafting, 76.1 mm and 7.1 mm at 1 year postoperatively, and 76.3 mm and 7.3 mm at final follow-up, respectively. The mean elongation of the grafted tendon was 12% and mean increase of excursion was 2.9 mm. We recommend that tension set during extensor tendon grafting should be with the metacarpophalangeal joint of the affected finger in a slightly extended position as compared with adjacent fingers.Level of evidenceIV
