Abstract

Persistent pain and decreased range of motion are disabling complications of wrist trauma. Between 1978 and 1986, in ten patients with persistent pain following trauma, arthrography depicted changes characteristic of adhesive capsulitis. Adhesive capsulitis has been described in the shoulder, hip, and ankle, but little mention has been made of this entity in other joints. Confirmation of this diagnosis requires arthrography, since there are no characteristic findings on plain radiographs. Typical arthrographic findings include decreased capacity, small volar and styloid recesses, and adhesions preventing complete opacification of the joint. The arthrographic diagnosis allows proper institution of appropriate therapy.
