DIAZ PRIETO, Giraldo; DELGADO QUINONES, Alberto; QUESADA PEREZ, José A  and  HERNANDEZ VALERA, Duniesky. Wrist denervation: surgical technique implementation. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2015, vol.44, n.1, pp.112-117. ISSN 0138-6557.

The articular denervation is the interruption of leading a joint pain to the brain by a surgical section of the joint nerve branches, which can be done without impacting motor muscle fibers or sensory skin. An experience of a palliative intervention is presented for every persistent algic condition as a consequence of wrist conditions which do not improve with other treatment methods. Seven patients were analyzed with chronic lesions of the radiocarpal joint who underwent surgical technique.

Keywords : wrist; osteoarthritis; denervation.
