    Report reads: manipulation under fluro,the lunate was able to be relocated back in position in better alignment of the capitate. After this was checked under fluro,a retrograde K-wire was fired through hamate metacarpal ,thru capitate into the lunate and into the distal radius. After this biplanar fixation,fluoro was checked and fixation was adequate......

    Does this help?
