Exploration of Wrist Soft Tissue Injuries Associated With Wrist Fractures

2014-08-27 03:12:50 | BioPortfolio


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 AO type A fractures of the distal radius with sufficient displacement (based of cadaveric data) will be included. After stability testing and wrist arthroscopy. The TFCC is explored through a volar incision and injuries were documented and repaired from this approach.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fibrocartilage that makes up the triangular fibrocartilage complex which is found in the WRIST JOINT.

Endoscopic examination, therapy and surgery of the joint.

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)

Injuries to blood vessels caused by laceration, contusion, puncture, or crush and other types of injuries. Symptoms vary by site and mode of injuries and may include bleeding, bruising, swelling, pain, and numbness. It does not include injuries secondary to pathologic function or diseases such as ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
