With the evolution of dry wrist arthroscopy, there is an ever-increasing role for its use in the treatment of disorders of the wrist including ligament repair or reconstruction, bony procedures such as distal radius corrective osteotomies or fracture fixation, and partial arthrodesis. We describe some of the tips and tricks that can be used to manage ulnar-sided wrist pain. We particularly emphasize the different technical points to perform dry wrist arthroscopy compared with previously described wet arthroscopic procedures.
