Abstract Kienböck disease typically presents with wrist pain, swelling, restricted range of motion, and difficulty in performing activities of daily living. Because the etiology and evolution of disease remain unclear, broad ranges of treatments have been designed. Percutaneous cementoplasty is expanding its role for managing painful bone metastases outside the spine. We can draw a parallel between lytic tumoral lesions and Kienbock’s disease. Increasing the strength and rigidity of lunate with cementoplasty can prevent it from collapse, relieve the symptoms associated with the process of avascular necrosis, and increase the wrist range of motion. We report the case of 30-year-old man with a painful stage IIIA Kienböck disease who underwent percutaneous cementoplasty and experienced immediate effective pain relief and recovery of wrist mobility.
