Abstract

Recent outcome studies suggest that soft tissue injuries to the distal radioulnar joint and triangular fibrocartilage complex are common after distal radius fractures. These injuries, if undiagnosed, may lead to significant pain, instability, and arthrosis. Early diagnosis and treatment of distal radioulnar joint instability is a key component to optimizing outcomes in patients with distal radius fractures.
