4 What constitutes the first part of every thorough physical examination? A thorough history


6 CLINICAL EXAMINATION ROM active, passive Grip - Jamar dynamometer (flat curve, rapid exchange grip strength, coefficient of variation) Pinch - Pinchmeter Circumference measurements (Volumetric measurements) Palpation Provocative tests Anaesthetic examination DASH Questionnaire Mayo evaluation score

7 RANGE OF MOTION (ROM) “The wrist is a key joint of the hand” – Starling Bunnel Wrist movement occurs around three principal functional axes: yet all of them are complex and are not restricted to a fixed geometric axis. Flexion-Extension : transverse axis, sagital plane Radial-Ulnar deviation: sagital axis, coronal (frontal) plane Pronation-Supination : longitudinal axis, horizontal plane What is their relative contribution to the upper extremity (UE) function?

8 WRIST MOTION IMPAIRMENT - 1 The wrist functional unit represents 60% of the upper extremity (UE) function. Flexion-Extension unit: 70% of wrist function:70%x60%=42% of UE function. Radial-Ulnar deviation unit: 30% of wrist function: 30%x60%=18% of UE function לשמירה על טווח כיפוף-ישור חשיבות גדולה יותר מאשר לשמירה על טווח ההטיות לצדדים Normal ROM 60-60 F-E Functional ROM: 10-10 F-E Normal ROM 20-30 R-U Functional ROM: 0-10 R-U Wrist fusion: 10 extension 10 ulnar deviation

9 WRIST MOTION IMPAIRMENT - 2 Pronation-Supination Impairments of pronation-supination are ascribed to the elbow because the major muscles for this function are inserted about the elbow. This applies even if the loss of rotation results primarily from the wrist involvement in the presence of an intact elbow The relative value of this motion unit is 28% of the UE function Normal ROM : 80-80 P-S Functional position: 20 P

10 WRIST MOTION IMPAIRMENT - 3 The relative contribution of various motion units to the upper extremity (UE) function: F-E 42% P-S 28% R-U 18%

11 How much wrist motion is required for most activities of daily living (ADL) ? Ruy (1991)PALMER (1985) 40 0 5050 Flexion 40 0 30 0 Extension 10 0 Radial deviation 30 0 15 0 Ulnar deviation

12 האם טווח התנועה בשורש היד חשוב בכל מחיר ? תקנות המל"ל "קשיון נוח" שורש יד - 20% נכות[תקנה 41(10)(ב')] קשיון ברוטציה של האמה במנח נוח - 10% נכות[תקנה 41(10)(ז')] "קשיון נוח" של כל האצבעות (במצטבר)- 31% נכות[תקנה 44(2+3+4)] מסקנה: תפקודן התקין של האצבעות חשוב יותר מתפקודו של שורש היד !!!!!!! מה הם שני התפקידים העיקריים של היד ? 1.אחיזה (על כל צורותיה) 2.מגע

22 א.בדיקת הצד הרדיאלי של שורש היד 1.Dorsal wrist (DWS) test 2.Finger extension (FET) test 3.Articular/nonarticular (ANA) test 4.Scaphotrapeziotrapezoid (STT) test 5.Scaphoid shift maneuver (SSM) 6.Ballotment test (shear) test for SL

23 1.Dorsal wrist (DWS) test לבדיקת פרק S-L : This joint is not painful to palpation. If painful, suspect:  S-L dissociation  Kienbock’s disease  Dorsal wrist syndrome (S-L joint overloading with wrist pain secondary to S-L ligament synovitis and/or tear preceding evidence of rotary subluxation of the scaphoid)

24 2.Finger extension (FET) test (wrist-flexion finger-extension maneuver) Usually not painful If painful:  Periscaphoid inflammation  Radiocarpal or midcarpal instability  Symptomatic rotary subluxation of scaphoid  Kienbock’s disease

25 3.Articular/nonarticular (ANA) test. Always compare to the other side If severe pain:  Periscaphoid synovitis  Scaphoid instability  SLAC changes

26 4.Scaphotrapeziotrapezoid (STT) test Palpation of this joint is not painful If painful, suspect:  Triscaphe synovitis  Triscaphe OA

27 5.Scaphoid shift maneuver (SSM) (Watson test, scaphoid shear test) If painful: rotary subluxation, periscaphoid arthritis

28 6. S- L shear test Pressure on the scaphoid tuberclePressure on dorsal aspect of the lunate Simultaneous pressure in opposite directions

29 7.Scapholunate ballottement test

30 ב.בדיקת הצד האולנרי של שורש היד Areas involved: 1.DRUJ 2.TFCC 3.Ulnar carpus

31 1.DRUJ Decreased and/or painful pronosupination:  Degenerative disease  Subluxation “Piano key” sign: exaggeration of normal ulna head prominance.  Dorsal subluxation  Articular effusion

32 Ulnar impingement or impaction syndrome Decreased and/or painful pronosupination while ulnar head is pressed volarward and the pisiformis pressed dorsally

33 2.TFCC Suspected when:  Loss of forearm prosupination and wrist motion  Tenderness over TFCC dorsally  Palpable and/or audible click with forearm rotation or radioulnar deviation ( Ulnar carpal abutment test ) Necessitates: Three compartment arthrography

34 3.ULNAR CARPUS LT compression test : direct pressure along ulnoradial axis by palpating within the ulnar snuffbox. (Linscheid’s test) If painful:  LT instability  Synovitis  Degenerative disease  Partial synchondrosis

35 LT instability: Reagan’s test (L-T ballottement, shuck, shear) Pressure on the lunate Pressure on the triquetrum

36 LT instability: Masquelet’s test

37 Pressure on pisiformisPressure on dorsal aspect of the lunate Simultaneous pressure in opposite directions

38 TH instability test 1.Grasping of the triquetrum 2.Stabilization of capitate and carpus with other hand 3.Volar and dorsal stressing of the triquetrum

39 TILT: Triquetral Impingement Ligament Tear syndrome Triad of:  Localized triquetral pain  History of hyperflexion injury  Normal radiographs Mechanism: cuff of fibrous tissue that has become detached from the ulnar sling mechanism and chronically impinges on the triquetrum, resulting in synovitis, bony eburnation and pain.
