Abstract

Kienbock's disease, or avascular necrosis of the lunate, is a progressive disease ultimately resulting in end-stage arthrosis of the wrist. Various surgical treatments are available for different Lichtman stages of disease. We review the surgical options and indications, expected radiologic post-operative appearance, as well as detail potential surgical complications, as they relate to Kienbock's disease.
