Abstract

Chronic Scapholunate ligament (SL) injuries are difficult to treat and can lead to wrist dysfunction. Virtual tenodesis surgery was undertaken in 3D finite element (FE) models to obtain the scapholunate (SL) gap and angle resulting from the three reconstruction techniques. The Corella technique was found to achieve the SL gap and angle closest to the intact, restoring SL gap and angle to within 5.6% and 0.6% respectively
