Abstract

We describe a patient with spontaneous multiple extensor tendon ruptures that were caused by a displaced fragment of the lunate in advanced Kienböck's disease. Complete excision of the lunate, limited carpal fusion, and extensor tendon reconstructions relieved the patient's symptom and restored function.
