In cases of paralysis of the upper limb, wrist fusion is useful in selected indications, especially when there are little to no tendon transfers available to restore finger function and wrist extension. Wrist fusion is particularly useful in the sequelae of brachial plexus lesions and in total paralysis of the radial nerve with hand drop and preserved wrist flexors. Numerous fusion techniques have been proposed. In cases of sequelae of brachial plexus lesions, locking of pronation-supination is associated with the wrist fusion. The use of anatomical plates has dropped the non-union and complication rates. Copyright © 2021. Published by Elsevier Masson SAS.
