Triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) tears are a common source of ulnar sided wrist pain. Originally described by Palmer, in 1981, as a complex of several structures, our understanding of the anatomy and the function of the TFCC has been refined by histologic studies. The TFCC plays an important role in load bearing across the wrist as well as in distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) stabilization. A thorough knowledge of the anatomy as well as the Palmer classification system helps to guide… Expand
MRI findings in bucket-handle tears of the triangular fibrocartilage complex
TLDR
Two new cases of bucket-handle tears of the triangular fibrocartilage complex are described, and in both cases, the torn fragment was displaced into a previously undescribed location (intra-articular DRUJ and prestyloid recess). Expand
Arthroscopic Treatment of Type 1B Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex Tear by “Outside-In” Repair Technique Using Transcapsular Transverse Mattress Suture
TLDR
The purpose of this article was to present the technique of arthroscopic outside-in repair using transverse mattress suture for type 1B TFCC tear by modifying classic vertical mattress sutures into sutURES that pass completely through the disc. Expand
Treatment Options for Distal Radioulnar Joint Arthritis: Balancing Functional Demand and Bony Resection.
The distal radioulnar joint is a complex anatomic structure that allows for a combination of rotation and translation with extrinsic and intrinsic stabilizers that maintain stability through aExpand
22 – Disorders of the lower radioulnar joint
TLDR
When a fracture of thedistal part of the radius fails to unite properly, arthrosis at the distal radioulnar joint may follow and the patient feels discomfort with movement of the joint. Expand
Acute TFCC Injury
TLDR
Treatment for TFCC injuries varies based on the acuity and location of the tear, and both open and arthroscopic repair techniques have been described. Expand
Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex Injury
TLDR
Patients with TFCC injury may have a history of fall onto pronated, outstretched extremity, repetitive use (gymnast), or insidious onset, but if symptoms are refractory, then surgical debridement or ulnar shortening may be warranted. Expand
The role of imaging in diagnosing diseases of the distal radioulnar joint, triangular fibrocartilage complex, and distal ulna.
TLDR
The DRUJ is a common site for acute and chronic injuries and is frequently imaged to evaluate chronic wrist pain, forearm dysfunction, and traumatic forearm injury. Expand
Ulnar shortening osteotomy for ulno-carpal impaction syndrome due to a malunited distal end radius
TLDR
The author reports the management of such a case, where the patient had classic symptoms of ulno-carpal impaction syndrome, with incongruity the distal radio-ulnar joint (without degeneration), but with a normal radio-Carpal joint. Expand

TLDR
Utilizing this novel brace resulted in functional status improvement in a subject with a TFCC tear as demonstrated by significant changes in his DASH outcome measure scores. Expand
Open Versus Arthroscopic Repair of 1B Ulnar-Sided Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex Tears: A Systematic Review
TLDR
A current lack of high-quality evidence is demonstrated required to draw firm conclusions on the merits of arthroscopic versus open repair of 1B TFCC tears, although some surgeons and authors may express a strong personal view. Expand

Management of chronic peripheral tears of the triangular fibrocartilage complex.
TLDR
Thirteen patients with traumatic separation of the triangular fibrocartilage complex from its peripheral origin had anatomic reconstitution by surgical reattachment to the ulna by postoperative rehabilitation, and two of the three unsatisfactory results responded well to subsequent surgery. Expand

TLDR
Arthroscopic repair of early peripheral tears of the triangular fibrocartilage complex is a satisfactory method of repair and can enhance patients' wrist function by relieving pain and increasing tolerance for work or sport. Expand

TLDR
Good results correlated with grip strength; all patients with post-traumatic TFCC tears had excellent results, while those with degenerativeTFCC tears did poorly. Expand

TLDR
Arthroscopic repair of peripheral tears of the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) is a satisfactory method of repairing injuries and returned to sports or work activities. Expand
The triangular fibrocartilage complex of the wrist--anatomy and function.
TLDR
The TFCC was found to be perforated in 53% of specimens dissected, and all of the wrists with a demonstrable perforation showed evidence of damage or erosion of the cartilage of the lunate and/or distal ulna. Expand
