Abstract

The triangular fibrocartilage complex is a functionally and anatomically intricate group of structures located at the ulnar aspect of the wrist. Injury to this structure affects the biomechanics of the wrist and makes functional restoration difficult. This article reviews the anatomy, biomechanics, diagnosis, and arthroscopic treatment of triangular fibrocartilage complex injuries.
