Repair of arthroscopic triangular fibrocartilage complex tears in athletes.
Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)
Triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) injuries are a common source of wrist pain in athletes. These injuries constitute a unique orthopedic challenge because of the particular physical demands on these patients. A specialized management approach is often necessary, due to the short recovery time available and the need for high demand performances afterward. Arthroscopic repair of TFCC is becoming the treatment of choice in this group of patients.
