Abstract

A 16-year-old girl sustained a transscaphoid, translunate, transtriquetrum volarly displaced fracture due to shear stress in the coronal plane. Treatment involved open reduction and internal fixation of the fractures followed by immobilization. At 15 months' follow-up, grip strength and motion were diminished compared with the uninjured wrist. Radiographs demonstrated fully healed fractures with narrowing of the cartilage space between the capitate and the lunate.
