Abstract

We describe a technique for the treatment of chronic dorsal instability of the distal radioulnar joint by creating a strong dorsal radioulnar restraint using opposing flaps from the extensor retinaculum and dorsal capsule of the radioulnar joint. This technique has been used in 18 patients and has proven to be very easy and reliable with all patients demonstrating good stability of the distal radioulnar joint at final follow-up.
