Ulnar-sided wrist pain can be a diagnostic challenge for clinicians and radiologists. The ulnar wrist has complex morphology and is composed of many small bone and soft tissue structures. Within these structures, a wide variety of pathologic conditions can occur. To successfully diagnose and treat these pathologic conditions, clinicians and radiologists must have a strong understanding of the advanced imaging techniques available to them. In this review, the authors present a brief review of the...

Hook of hamate fractures are uncommon injuries with unclear prevalence. Classic presenting symptoms include volar-ulnar hand/wrist pain and weakness in grip, with possible ulnar nerve paresthesias. Patient factors, such as activity level and desired return to work/sport, shape the most appropriate treatment regimen although excision of the hook has been adopted by most surgeons. Overall, once patients receive the correct diagnosis and are treated, good outcomes with high satisfaction rates are e...

Lunotriquetral (LT) ligament injuries are uncommon, however, should be considered in patients with ulnar-sided wrist pain. LT injuries are often associated with other injuries but can occur in isolation. Understanding the anatomy and pathomechanics will aid in making the diagnosis. Similar to other injuries, a thorough history and focused physical examination is critical. Radiographs may show normal findings; however, advanced imaging can support the diagnosis. Arthroscopy remains the gold stand...
Instability of the distal radioulnar joint is a source of ulnar-sided wrist pain and functional impairment. Symptomatic instability may present acutely, after a recent traumatic injury, or in a delayed fashion as chronic instability following a history of a traumatic event. A detailed understanding of the complex anatomy, biomechanics, and stabilizing structures of the distal radioulnar joint is important to evaluate and treat acute and chronic instability. This article describes the pathophysio...

The distal radioulnar joint is a complex anatomic structure that allows for a combination of rotation and translation with extrinsic and intrinsic stabilizers that maintain stability through a delicate equilibrium. Traumatic, congenital, inflammatory, and degenerative processes can disturb this sensitive balance, resulting in distal radioulnar joint arthritis. We discuss the joint's anatomy and biomechanics and the clinical approach to the patient. We review the surgical treatment options, expec...

Unsuccessful triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) repair or reconstruction is poorly defined, often stemming from multiple causes, both patient and surgeon-related. Complete evaluation of the patient's psychosocial status and involvement in any litigation claims is essential, as is a thorough history, physical examination, and imaging workup to accurately diagnose TFCC injury, along with any concomitant wrist pathology. Awareness of common complications and technical errors is critical, and ...

The use of wrist arthroscopy has evolved to being a powerful tool to not only diagnose but also treat wrist disorders. With the improvement in technology and surgical technique, many of the procedures can be done using dry wrist arthroscopy (DWA). DWA can be used to treat a wide spectrum of ulnar wrist disorders. In this article, we aim to highlight some technical pearls as well as show its use to treat common ulnar wrist pain disorders.

Extensor carpi ulnaris tendon subluxation can be a challenging diagnosis as a cause of wrist pain. The tendon is stabilized by a tough subsheath. This subsheath is vulnerable to tears in acute wrist movements, especially those combining supination, flexion, and ulnar deviation. The patient presenting acutely may experience swelling, tenderness, and pain. In a chronic setting, the complaint is often an unstable wrist. The diagnosis can be made with a thorough examination, and ultrasonography can ...

Triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) tears can cause ulnar-sided wrist pain in children and adolescents following acute rotational injury or prior distal radius fracture. Surgical treatment, guided by the Palmer classification, is considered after activity modification and occupational therapy. All concomitant wrist pathologies, such as distal radioulnar joint instability, ulnocarpal impaction, and distal radius malunion, must be recognized and addressed at the time of TFCC debridement or re...
