Abstract

Various osteotomies, core decompression, and denervation all have demonstrated favorable outcomes in treatment of Kienböck disease. Given the rarity of this disease, there is a dearth of high-level comparative studies to direct treatment. In this article, the authors review the current literature surrounding these techniques, and provide summary recommendations for the procedure choice.
