ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: To evaluate functional outcomes of patients submit-ted to proximal row carpectomy for the treatment of wrist arthri-tisMETHODS: This is a retrospective study using wrist motion and grip strenght of patients diagnosed with Kienböck disease and scaphoid non-union surgically treated by this techniqueRESULTS: Eleven patients with 2-year follow-up were evaluated. Wrist motion (flexion, extension and ulnar deviation) and grip strength were significantly better from preoperative values. Ho-wever, no difference in radial deviation was observed in these patientsCONCLUSION: Proximal row carpectomy provides an alternative option for treatment of wrist arthritis, resulting in better active range of motion and grip strength in the long run.
