Static scapholunate dissociation diagnosed by scapholunate gap view in wrists with or without distal radius fractures

, : Static scapholunate dissociation diagnosed by scapholunate gap view in wrists with or without distal radius fractures. Hand Surgery 7(2): 191-195

This prospective study investigated static scapholunate dissociation (SLD) in wrists associated with distal radius fractures. SLD was detected as a widening of the scapholunate (SL) joint interval by SL gap view. Ninety-six distal radius fractures and 154 normal wrists were investigated by SL gap view, which is better for detecting SLD than the standard posteroanterior (PA) view. Incidences of non-symptomatic SLD detected by SL gap view in normal wrists increased by age. In the young age bracket, incidences of SLD in distal radius fractures were significantly higher than in normal wrists. Our results indicated that in patients younger than 30 years old, SLD in distal radius fractures was a fracture-caused abnormality. In those over 30, ascribing SLD to the fracture was difficult. Close examinations, like arthroscopy and dynamic cineradiography, need to be made in patients with SLD associated with distal radius fractures, especially in those younger than 30.
