Arthroscopic Debridement Pinning: Management of Recent and Unstable Perilunate Injuries
When a scapholunate or triquetrolunate injury is stabilized within 6 weeks from the date of the trauma, its midterm or long-term outcome is usually favourable. Indeed, the use of wires to stabilize the joint in anatomic reduction for a period from 6 to 8 weeks slows down or prevents adaptive collapse [1, 4, 6].
