Wrist arthrodesis with volar plate fixation in cerebral palsy.
Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg. 2010 Jun; 14(2):69-72.TH

Abstract

Wrist arthrodesis can obtain better appearance, hygiene, and ease of daily care, with some degree of functional improvement in patients with cerebral palsy with a severe wrist flexion deformity. Rigid fixation using a dorsal plate and screws has been accepted as a reliable technique, although hardware-related problems are relatively common. We describe a volar plate fixation technique for wrist arthodesis in cerebral palsy, which can allow concomitant flexor tendon release and avoid a prominent hardware and a cosmetically undesirable scar on the dorsum of the wrist.
