Abuse of opioids has had and continues to have a devastating impact on public health and safety in the United States, and the use of opioids has increased dramatically in the last two decades. The purpose of this chapter is to examine the roots of this tragic state of affairs and what may be done about it moving forward. The authors review the medical-legal risks physicians face when prescribing pain relieving medications for their patients. Strategies are offered for staying out of trouble whil...

Purpose To determine whether simplification of the Eaton–Glickel (E-G) classification of trapeziometacarpal (TMC) joint arthrosis (eliminating evaluation of the scaphotrapezial [ST] joint) and information about the patient's symptoms and examination influence interobserver reliability. We also tested the null hypotheses that no patient and/or surgeon factors affect radiographic rating of TMC joint arthrosis and that no surgeon factors affect the radiographic rating of ST joint arthrosis. Methods...

The Sauve-Kapandji procedure is useful for treating a variety of pathologic conditions that alter the normal function of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ). An arthrodesis is performed between the ulnar head and sigmoid fossa of the distal radius along with creation of a soft tissue interposition pseudarthrosis just proximal to the arthrodesis site that preserves forearm rotation. Presented herein is a brief history of the procedure and the current techniques available to achieve optimum results...

Purpose Chronic scapholunate dissociation is the most common cause of symptomatic wrist instability. In an attempt to restore normal carpal mechanics and prevent wrist arthrosis, we developed and tested biomechanically the dorsal intercarpal ligament capsulodesis (DILC). Previously, we reported good early clinical results for this procedure at an average follow-up period of 25 months. Here, we report on the functional and radiographic outcomes at a longer follow-up period of a minimum of 5 years...
