Articles relating to the use of Walant to perform a trapeziectomy.

Using Walant is potentially a game-changer, seeing if the metacarpal base descends onto the scaphoid or not. Perhaps if we can check the movements with active motion we may be able to separate out who needs a more complicated operation / sling and who doesn't, although I appreciate what the evidence says! Perhaps this is another area of research we should coordinate?
