Subluxation can occur at the midcarpal joint or at the radiocarpal joint.
For this reason, communication between the radiocarpal and midcarpal compartments during fluoroscopic or MR arthrograms does not necessarily represent a symptomatic finding or reflect a traumatic tear of the ligament.
Radiographically, the SL gap should be closed and the midcarpal joint should appear anatomic.
Chapters focusing on the wrist section address setup, anatomy, portal, and diagnostic basics; basic procedures, including excision of dorsal ganglion; advanced procedures for midcarpal instability, acute scaphoid fractures in nonunions, and carpal, metacarpal, and phalangeal fractures; carpal tunnel release; and complications.
Isometric exercise of the FCU will act to compress the pisiform against the volar aspect of the triquetrum, thus contributing to stability in the presence of an ulnar midcarpal instability pattern.
