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.

Outcomes of Operative Treatment of Triangular Fibrocartilage Tears in Pediatric and Adolescent Athletes.

Triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) tears have been treated with increasing frequency in pediatric and adolescent patients over the past decade. There is little information on these injuries in y...

Tenodesis of the Ulnotriquetrum Ligament to the Fovea for a Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex Tear.

We developed a novel procedure to treat a triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) foveal tear, namely tenodesis of the ulnotriquetrum ligament (UTL) to the fovea. We attempted to reestablish the tens...

Agreement between arthroscopic and imaging study findings in chronic anterior talo-fibular ligament injuries.

Imaging studies done to evaluate chronic ankle instability (CAI) often fail to accurately detail injuries to the anterior talo-fibular ligament (ATFL) and may, therefore, also fail to provide guidance...

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)

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.

A specialty in which manual or operative procedures are used in the treatment of disease, injuries, or deformities.
