Four-corner fusion: Comparing outcomes of conventional K-wire-, locking plate-, and retrograde headless compression screw fixations.

Several operative approaches and various implants for osseous fixation have been described to achieve four-corner fusion of the wrist. Given the discordance and to aid in further standardizing the technique, this study directly compares the outcomes of K-wire, fusion plate, and headless retrograde compressive screw fixations to achieve four-corner arthrodesis.Sixty-four patients underwent four-corner fusion over a period of 5 years and were reviewed retrospectively.
