In this issue of Hand Clinics, guest editors Drs. Mitchell A. Pet and Charles A. Daly bring their considerable expertise to the topic of Avascular Necrosis of the Carpal Bones: Etiologies and Treatments. Avascular necrosis of the carpal bones is a key cause of wrist pain and limitations to motion, as well as strength limitations. Oftentimes, these conditions devolve into arthritis. AVN (osteonecrosis) in the carpus is death of the surrounding bone marrow tissues; Kienböck disease in particular is osteonecrosis of the lunate. In this issue, top experts provide a state-of-the-art review of AVN of the carpal tissues, with a particular emphasis on diagnosis and treatment. 

Key Features
