The Rheumatoid Hand


OrthopaedicsandTrauma.com asked John Hardy, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with an interest in hand surgery at the newest Private London Polyclinic about the wrist in rheumatoid arthritis. He said: "Before patients develop the destructive changes leading radiographic changes of Larsen-Dale-Eek grades II to IV, midcarpal joint space widening of greater than 1 mm, and ulnar shift or palmar subluxation of the carpus that would provide the indications for radiocarpal arthrodesis the use of this splint or one of the other Donjoy splints can improve function and therefore the quality of life without the risks of arthrodesis. He said: "it is also a useful guide to both surgeon and patient about how arthrodesis will benefit this patient group."
