Perilunate Dislocations and Fracture-Dislocations


We analysed the 16 cases of the perilunate dislocations (PLD) and fracture-dislocations (PLFD) to study the distribution of the different forms and provides additional information about the perilunate pattern of injury. The cases were followed at least 1 year and an average of 2 years and 3 months. The results were as follows: l. All of the cases, the direction of the dislocation was dorsal. The PLD was 4 cases (25%) and PLFD was 12 cases (75%). The transscapholid perilunate fracture-dislocation (TS-PLFD) was the most common type. 2. Scaphoid fracture was present in 9 cases (56%), It was transverse fracture in the middle 1/3. 3. Missed or delayed diagnoses were noted in 3 cases (18%). 4. Overall functional results were graded as exellent in 2 cases (13%), good in 9 cases (56%), fair in 3 cases (18%) and poor in 2 cases (13%).
