The dorsal radiocarpal (DRC) and dorsal intercarpal (DIC) ligaments are the two dorsal extrinsic ligaments and provide resistance against ulnar translation to the radiocarpal and midcarpal
The wrist consists of two joints, namely, radiocarpal and midcarpal
joints, which are located at the distal ends of the radial and ulna bones (see Figure 2).
Here, we present a case of a 57-year-old female who suffered a complex perilunate fracture dislocation treated by scaphoidectomy, triquetromy, and midcarpal
fusion (three-corner fusion).
The respective tendons were transected at the level of the midcarpal
[12,13] Although there is no threshold limit for distraction, but there is a correlation between increasing carpal height index and worse functional outcomes with distraction of 5-8 mm across the radiocarpal and midcarpal
joints have no negative outcome.
In all patients, radiocarpal, midcarpal
, and ulnocarpal joints; finger joints of the same hand 2., 3., 4.
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.
Limited carpal arthrodesis like STT and SC has been reported to get good results by stabilizing the midcarpal
joint and arresting the proximal migration of carpal bones.
The second arc consists of midcarpal
row, disruption of indicates perilunate dislocation.
The examination site was 8 cm and set to encompass radioulnar, radiocarpal, midcarpal
, and proximal metacarpal heads.
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
