Abstract

We report a case of distal radius fracture after a Sauvé-Kapandji procedure combined with synovectomy and tendon transfer in a rheumatoid arthritis patient. This case shared several unusual features that were also seen in a previously reported case. Based on these features, we discuss favorable surgical treatment for the rheumatoid wrist with extensor tendon rupture, and also the optimal treatment for distal radius fracture after such procedures.
