A NEW APPROACH TO THE WRIST JOINT.

The approach to the wrist joint which has been described is particularly applicable to cases in which an arthrodesis of the radiocarpal joint is indicated, without interference with pronation and supination.

By extending the incision distally, it may be applied to any condition demanding exposure of the proximal or of the distal rows of carpal bones.
