What is Kienbock’s Disease?

Kienbock’s Disease is the name of a disorder whereby blood supply to the lunate, one of the carpals (wrist bones) located centrally at the base of the wrist, is interrupted. Typically this interruption is due to a stress fracture, a break in the bone following repetitive microtrauma. It often presents as a gradual increase in symptoms with no history of trauma. Symptoms of Kienbock’s disease include pain and/or swelling at the base of the wrist with reduced range of motion, reduced grip strength and/or tenderness on palpation.
