Trans Scaphoid Perilunate Dislocation – Case Study

This patient had a massive fall leading to a terrible wrist injury. X-rays showed a trans scaphoid perilunate injury.

This consisted of a fracture of the scaphoid bone and tear of multiple ligaments.

He visited several hospitals and ended up loosing some precious months!
We opted to create a new joint by a salvage procedure called proximal row carpectomy, this gave him a painless mobile wrist.
