Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Most current surgical techniques for scapholunate interosseous ligament injuries address the dorsal component only. Previously, volar capsulodesis has been described either as an open approach or an “all-inside” technique. In this article, we report an alternative arthroscopic technique to address volar scapholunate interosseous ligament injuries. Arthroscopic-assisted volar scapholunate capsulodesis may be considered in the treatment algorithm for volar scapholunate interosseous ligament injuries.
