- Scientific TitlePosttraumatic osteoarthritis following perilunate dislocations and perilunate fracture dislocations in young patients and the correlation with subjective and objective outcome measures. A descriptive cohort study
- hypothesisTo determine the prevalence of posttraumatic osteoarthritis following a PLD-PLFDs in a cohort of young non-osteoporotic patients and correlation with objective and subjective outcome measures.
- Healt Condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedPost-traumatic arthritis
- Inclusion criteriaAll patients treated in the period 1996 until 2014 in the University Medical Center Groningen for a PLD-PLFD
- Men between the ages of 18 - 50 years and women between the ages of 18 - 40 years at the time of injury (no clinical osteoarthritis according to current available information in the literature)
- Written informed consent
- Mentally competent
- Exclusion criteriaPreexistent osteoarthritis of the hand or preexistent declined function of the hand or wrist according to the patient
- ASA III-V patients or other contra-indications for surgical treatment at the time of injury. These patients are not able to receive the most optimal treatment and thus altered outcome measures can be expected

- Brief summary The development of posttraumatic osteoarthritis (PA) following perilunate dislocations and perilunate fracture dislocations (PLD-PLFDs) has been described. Direct and indirect joint impact loading, soft tissue injuries, joint dislocation and intra-articular fractures, increase the risk of progressive joint degeneration that cause PA. It is though posttraumatic osteoarthritis develops less in younger patients. However, it might be more invalidating for a young non-osteoporotic patient to develop posttraumatic osteoarthritis and loss of function following PLD-PLFD than for an older patient. The extent of the loss of function can be objectified using functional measures, such as range of motion and grip strength. Subjective measures to objectify loss of function as experienced by the patient can be performed using validated questionnaires. In this study, the prevalence of posttraumatic osteoarthritis following a PLD-PLFD in young patients is determined. Also, the question arises what the correlation between objective and subjective outcome measures is following a PLD-PLFD in young patients.
