Abstract

Ulnar-sided wrist pain has often been equated with low back pain because of its insidious onset, vague and chronic nature, intermittent symptoms, and frustration that it induces in patients. Chronic ulnar-sided wrist pain may be accompanied by a history of workers' compensation claims and unrelenting and irresolvable pain, and it may occur in patients with dfficult personalities. Despite these issues, many patients with ulnar-sided wrist pain have pathologic lesions that may be amenable to surgical treatment.
