Treatment of periscaphoid osteoarthritis by Silastic scaphoid implant.

Abstract

Periscaphoid osteoarthritis may arise de novo or as a sequel of an established non-union of a scaphoid fracture. The treatment of resultant pain and disability often presents a difficult problem since internal fixation and/or bone grafting of the pseudoarthrosis may fail to relieve the symptoms due to degenerative change. Many methods of alleviating these symptoms have been suggested in the past. We have reviewed the experience of the Windsor Orthopaedic group in the use of Silastic scaphoid implants.
