An immunohistochemical study of the triangular fibrocartilage complex of the wrist: regional variations in cartilage phenotype.

Abstract

The triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) transmits load from the wrist to the ulna and stabilizes the distal radioulnar joint. Damage to it is a major cause of wrist pain. Although its basic structure is well established, little is known of its molecular composition. We have analysed the immunohistochemical labelling pattern of the extracellular matrix… (More)
