The Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex (TFCC)

The TFCC is a complicated ligamentous structure on the ulnar (opposite to the thumb) side of the wrist. It is responsible for the stability of the distal radio-ulnar joint (DRUJ) which allows rotatory movements of the forearm. It can be injured by falling or through arthritis. I use MRI, MRI arthrogram and wrist arthroscopy to diagnose and treat the problems.
