Abstract

Scapholunate ligamentous injuries are the most common interosseous carpal injuries within young active individuals, with an incidence up to 54% after distal radius fractures. If left untreated, they can lead to scapholunate ligament advanced collapse. Controversy exists in the management of acute scapholunate ligament injuries. In this article, we review the current concepts in diagnosis, classification, and surgical management of these injuries.
