Carpal Kinematics and Kinetics JOURNAL OF HAND SURGERY-AMERICAN VOLUME Kamal, R. N., Starr, A., Akelman, E. 2016; 41 (10): 1011-1018


The complex interaction of the carpal bones, their intrinsic and extrinsic ligaments, and the forces in the normal wrist continue to be studied. Factors that influence kinematics, such as carpal bone morphology and clinical laxity, continue to be identified. As imaging technology improves, so does our ability to better understand and identify these factors. In this review, we describe advances in our understanding of carpal kinematics and kinetics. We use scapholunate ligament tears as an example of the disconnect that exists between our knowledge of carpal instability and limitations in current reconstruction techniques.
