Abstract

Introduction: Perilunate injuries are rare entities which can be difficult to diagnose. Most common type is dorsal perilunate fracture dislocation (97%). The purpose of treatment is anatomic reduction and stable fixation. We aimed to present the radiologic and functional results of surgically treated dorsal perilunate fracture-dislocations and discuss the factors influencing the prognosis.
