Ligaments Reconstruction for Posttraumatic Ulnar Translocation of the Carpus: A Case Report
Posttraumatic ulnar translocation of the carpus, a result of radiocarpal ligament tear is a relatively rare condition that may lead to persistent wrist pain and loss of function.Case Description
We report a case of radiocarpal ligament tear of which we reconstruct it with a vascularized interosseous membrane with 13 years of follow-up.Literature Review
Many treatment options have been proposed for the posttraumatic ulnar translocation, ranging from open repair to partial wrist fusion. However, the long term results have been disappointing.Clinical Relevance
Though this technique of reconstruction is technically demanding, it shows promising long term clinical outcome.
