What is fused and what is missing? - 7/5/2007
This patient has had a salvage procedure for his wrist. See if you can determine what is missing and what is fused.

Good LUCK!


Moderators Response:
The fused bones are the lunate, capitate, hamate and triquetrum with the scaphoid excision

LCTH arthrodesis with extraction of the scapoid. Maybe also a ulna+ variance.
