    Abstract

    The distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) allows forearm rotation and load transmission across the wrist. Post-traumatic and degenerative joint disease of DRUJ may cause pain and disability. Deficiency of the soft tissue or bony supports may result in DRUJ instability. Various techniques have been developed to address arthritis and / or instability of the DRUJ. A comprehensive review of the spectrum of surgical techniques and arthroplasty options is presented. The concepts of these procedures are discussed in detail, with a focus on special points of interest to optimise outcomes and to avoid complications. The salvage of the complications of arthroplasties is also presented in detail.
