Numerous studies have documented the high incidence of asymptomatic and congenital perforations of the TFCC, and have called into question the significance of fluid communication across the TFCC between the radiocarpal joint and inferior radioulnar compartment.
An experimental study of the radiocarpal joint by arthrography.
Evaluating instability requires visualizing not only the radiocarpal joint but also the midcarpal joint, since any incongruity associated with intercarpal instability is often more effectively assessed at the midcarpal joint.
When the dorsal portion of the SLIL is disrupted, the arthroscope can usually be passed from the midcarpal space and almost into the radiocarpal space.
The main advantage of the procedure over an open operative synovectomy is its ability to more effectively remove synovial tissue in the volar recesses of the radiocarpal and midcarpal joints.
Radiocarpal arthroscopy and arthrography in the diagnosis of ulnar wrist pain.
Flexible implant arthroplasty for arthritic disabilities of the radiocarpal joint.
Flexible implant arthroplasty of the radiocarpal joint.
The titanium grommet in flexible implant arthroplasty of the radiocarpal joint: A long-term review of 44 cases.
Synovitis of the radiocarpal and mid-carpal joints can be very painful.
This is usually combined with stabilization of the distal ulna, ECU, and radiocarpal alignment (correct carpal supination).
Unfortunately, radiocarpal changes are not delayed and the progression of the degeneration follows a course that is consistent with the pattern of RA in the individual.
