Subluxation of the distal radioulnar joint as a predictor of foveal triangular fibrocartilage complex tears.
Summary of "Subluxation of the distal radioulnar joint as a predictor of foveal triangular fibrocartilage complex tears."
The triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) with its ulnar foveal attachment is the primary stabilizer of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ). The purpose of this study was to describe a technique for measuring the degree of subluxation of the DRUJ in wrist magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations to predict tears involving the foveal attachment of the TFCC.

The triangular fibrocartilage complex is in conjunction with the interosseous membrane the most important stabilizer of the distal radioulnar joint. Lesions of the triangular fibrocartilage complex ma...
We report a case of locking of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) due to interposition of a flap of the palmar radioulnar ligament (RUL) torn from the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC). We rele...
Background Dorsal instability of the distal ulna can lead to chronic wrist pain and loss of function. Structural changes to the dorsal radioulnar ligaments (DRUL) of the triangular fibrocartilage co...
It has been reported that the distal interosseous membrane (DIOM) of the forearm constrains the dorsal dislocation of the distal radius. A residual ulnar translation deformity of the radial shaft in d...
Wrist arthroscopy is now widely indicated for diagnosis and treatment of acute or chronic wrist pain, especially for triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) lesions, as a gold standard. In most cases...
The purpose of this study is to describe and stage lesions of the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) in association with distal radius fractures. 20 patients with dorsally dislocated...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether distal clavicle resection is effective treatments in patients with acromioclavicular joint pain accompanied by rotator cuff tear.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of the self-designed surface functional electrical stimulator on shoulder joint subluxation for stroke patients
BACKGROUND: Intra-articular glucocorticoid injections are frequently used to relieve symptoms of arthritis. Postinjection rest has been shown to improve the outcome of knee joint injection...
The purpose of this study is to determine if Macugen™ reduces foveal thickness and improves vision in patients with wet AMD.
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Fibrocartilage that makes up the triangular fibrocartilage complex which is found in the WRIST JOINT.
The joint that is formed by the distal end of the RADIUS, the articular disc of the distal radioulnar joint, and the proximal row of CARPAL BONES; (SCAPHOID BONE; LUNATE BONE; triquetral bone).
A variety of conditions affecting the anatomic and functional characteristics of the temporomandibular joint. Factors contributing to the complexity of temporomandibular diseases are its relation to dentition and mastication and the symptomatic effects in other areas which account for referred pain to the joint and the difficulties in applying traditional diagnostic procedures to temporomandibular joint pathology where tissue is rarely obtained and x-rays are often inadequate or nonspecific. Common diseases are developmental abnormalities, trauma, subluxation, luxation, arthritis, and neoplasia. (From Thoma's Oral Pathology, 6th ed, pp577-600)
A type of CARTILAGE whose matrix contains large bundles of COLLAGEN TYPE I. Fibrocartilage is typically found in the INTERVERTEBRAL DISK; PUBIC SYMPHYSIS; TIBIAL MENISCI; and articular disks in synovial JOINTS. (From Ross et. al., Histology, 3rd ed., p132,136)
The articulation between the head of one phalanx and the base of the one distal to it, in each toe.
