An analysis of the results of treatment of 19 'full-house' injuries is presented. In this series 'full-house' syndrome/spaghetti wrist injuries refers to those injuries involving ten or more structures severed at the volar wrist. Gratifying results in overall hand function were obtained in 18 patients. However, ulnar nerve intrinsic recovery and fine sensibility recovery was disappointing. Recommendations for improvement in the management of these injuries are made.
