Arthroplasty, osteotomy or arthrodesis of the wrist

The aftereffects of wrist trauma or arthritis (separation, SLAC or SNAC type arthrosis) are treated with ligament repair or partial fusion of the carpus bones (capsulodesis, arthroplasty or arthrodesis).

Osseous imbalance in the wrist can require the lengthening or shortening of the bones in the forearm, with a fixation using a plate and screws (osteotomy with osteosynthesis).
