Design illustrations of the different stages of wrist osteoarthritis. In wrist arthrosis, the joint surfaces between the ulna, radius, os scaphoideum , os lunatum, os triquetrium are affected. Here, the articular cartilage is increasingly damaged and can no longer perform its protective and damping function in the joint. In the further progression, the surrounding bone of the joint also changes (osteophytes) and the joint space is reduced, with the result that the joint is finally destroyed.

Illustration of the skeleton of the hand with focus on the joint surfaces
Wrist arthrosis stage 1 (beginning arthrosis, thickening and change of the joint cartilage)
Wrist arthrosis stage 2 (damage to the articular cartilage, osteophyte formation)
Wrist arthrosis stage 3 (increased osteophyte formation, visible cartilage damage, narrowing of the joint space)
Wrist arthrosis stage 4 (cartilage loss down to the bone, joint space almost eliminated)
