Abstract: Several treatments for patients with isolated lunotriquetral (LT) tears have been described previously. The choice between a LT fusion, (attempts to) repair and (complicated) ligament reconstruction is not yet established [3, 5-7, 9, 11].
LT arthrodesis gives variable outcomes and most ligament reconstructions are technically demaning, requiring extensive approaches. In 1996, Sennwald and collaboraters [10] proposed a radially based flap of the extensor retinaculum to be inserted on the triquetrum and sodoeing reconstructing a dorsal stabilizer of the LT joint (capsulodesis).
The purpose of this paper is to compare Sennwald’s technique with a similar group of patients previously treated at our department with an LT fusion.
