The Sauve-Kapandji procedure for the treatment of posttraumatic distal radioulnar joint problems.

Author information

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of California, San Francisco.


The appropriate management of distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) problems has no consensus. Although the Sauve-Kapandji procedure is not new, little has been written on the indications for its use. Our experience shows that this operation is an effective treatment for patients with some combination of posttraumatic DRUJ problems that involve arthritis, instability of the distal ulna, and ulna-plus variance.
