Etiology and Treatment of Kienböck Disease
Twenty-four specimens of the collapsed lunate were obtained at the time of tendon-ball implantation procedure for advanced Kienböck disease in stage IIIB and IV. All excised lunates were elongated in the dorsal-palmar direction, and flattened in the proximo-distal direction. Articular cartilage was attenuated. There was a major fracture accompanied by multiple minor fractures in the specimen.
