Repair of peripheral triangular fibrocartilage complex tears


Journal Article

Arthroscopic repair of peripheral triangular fibrocartilage complex tears results in relief of pain and improvement of distal radioulnar joint stability in patients with ulnar-neutral or ulnar-negative variance. The addition of ulnar shortening can provide improvement in patients with ulnar-positive variance. Full motion and normal strength are expected and complications are rare. The arthroscopic techniques described are relatively easy for the experienced arthroscopist, and results short-term results are favorable.
