Synovial Chondromatosis of the Midcarpal Joint: A Case Report and Brief Review of Literature
In this report, we present a case of synovial chondromatosis arising from the midcarpal joint and the arthroscopic treatment thereof. Literature review Owing to its rarity, literature on synovial chondromatosis occurring in the hand and wrist is extremely limited. To our knowledge, no report has been published describing the arthroscopic treatment of an isolated synovial chondromatosis of the midcarpal joint. Clinical relevance As synovial chondromatosis of the hand and wrist is extremely rare, and clinical and radiological findings can be nonspecific, the diagnosis might be overlooked initially.

Factors Associated with a Recommendation for Operative Treatment for Fracture of the Distal Radius
Conclusions The observation that—other than age—personal factors have limited influence on surgeon recommendations for surgery may reflect how surgeon cognitive biases, personal preferences, different perspectives, and incentives may contribute to variations in care. Future research can determine whether decision aids—those that use patient-specific probabilities based on predictive analytics in particular—might help match patient treatment choices to what matters most to them, in part by helping to neutralize the influence of common misconceptions as well as surgeon bias and incentives.

Arthroscopic Excision of Localized Nodular Tenosynovitis of Carpometacarpal Joint of Thumb: A Case Report and Review of Literature
We report a rare case of nodular tenosynovitis of the CMC joint of the thumb managed with complete arthroscopic resection of the tumor, and no recurrence at a follow-up of 2.5 years. This is another addition to the list of indications for thumb CMC arthroscopy. Arthroscopic treatment provides the distinct advantage of thorough assessment of the articular cartilage, complete excision of the tumor via a minimally invasive technique, early return of function, and better cosmesis. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first such report of arthroscopic resection of nodular tenosynovitis of the thumb CMC joint. [...] Thieme ...

Histomorphology of the Subregions of the Scapholunate Interosseous Ligament and Its Enthesis
Conclusions There are significant morphological differences between the SLIL subregions. The dorsal subregion has the largest amount of CF, which is consistent with the greater biomechanical force subjected to this subregion. The similar histomorphology of the ligament at the scaphoid and lunate entheses suggests that similar biomechanical forces are applied to both attachments. Clinical Relevance The histomorphological results confirm that the dorsal subregion is the strongest of the three subregions. The results from the entheseal region may have important implications in the study of graft incorporation dur...

Long-Term Results of Arthroscopic Capsular Shrinkage for Palmar Midcarpal Instability of the Wrist
Conclusion There are no studies looking at the long-term natural history of treatments for PMCI. The lead author proposes a grading system for symptomatic PMCI that has been retrospectively applied to this cohort. It is a grading system from 1 to 4 and is based on a treatment algorithm. This is the first long-term study from any joint, where the results of capsular shrinkage have been maintained over time. In this series, we have not seen any deleterious effect from possible mechanoreceptor injury. We suspect that functioning mechanoreceptors are more relevant in the unstable joint, than the structurally stable joint....
