Arthroscopic Management of Kienbock’s Disease

Simon MacLean, Gregory I. Bain

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The management of Kienbock’s Disease presents a challenge to the treating surgeon. Arthroscopy should be used in conjunction with a thorough clinical review and appropriate investigations. Diagnostic arthroscopy is the most effective way to assess the articular surfaces and soft tissues within the wrist. Arthroscopic treatment confers a number of benefits, allowing for a minimally invasive directed approach to the patient with KD. It should be used with an algorithm-based approach, respecting the status of the patient, the lunate, and the wrist.
