Visualisation of the pisotriquetral joint through standard portals for arthroscopy of the wrist: a clinical and anatomical study.

2007: A P Arya; Rajiv Kulshreshtha; Gopikrishna Kakarala; R Singh; JP Compson

The Journal of bone and joint surgery. British volume 2007;89(2):202-5.

Disorders of the pisotriquetral joint are well recognised as the cause of pain on the ulnar side of the wrist. The joint is not usually examined during routine arthroscopy because it is assumed to have a separate joint cavity to the radiocarpal joint, although there is often a connection between the two.

Do the dimensions of the distal phalanges allow suture anchor fixation of the flexor digitorum profundus? A cadaver study.

2011: D K Jain; G Kakarala; JP Compson; R Singh

The Journal of hand surgery, European volume 2011;36(8):698-700.

This study was done to identify whether the dimensions of the distal phalanges allow suture anchor fixation of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon. Forty pairs of hands were dissected to measure the anteroposterior and lateral dimensions of distal phalanges of all digits.
