Treatment of progressive necrosis of the lunate bone (Kienböck disease) after unsuccessful radial osteotomy

, : Treatment of progressive necrosis of the lunate bone (Kienböck disease) after unsuccessful radial osteotomy. Scandinavian Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Hand Surgery 41(5): 267-271

We report the treatment of three patients with stage 3 Kienböck disease that had advanced after radial shortening (n = 2) or lateral wedge osteotomy (n = 1). We shortened the capitate and fused the capitate and hamate, and applied a vascularised bone graft taken from the distal dorsal radius to the lunate. This was successful in all three patients.
