Reconstruction of longitudinal stability of the forearm after disruption of interosseous ligament and radial head excision (Essex-Lopresti lesion).

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We have presented a technique for reconstruction of the central band of the interosseous membrane in conjunction with surgical repair of the distal radial joint and radial head prosthesis. With this technique, we address all three anatomic structures that provide longitudinal stability of the forearm, specifically, (1) radial head replacement, (2) interosseous membrane reconstitution, and (3) TFCC repair.
