Abstract

Triangular fibrocartilaginous complex (TFCC) tears are common sources of ulnar-sided wrist pain and resultant functional disability. Diagnosis is based on the history and clinical examination as well as radiographic evidence of a TFCC central perforation or a radial/ulnar tear. The purpose of this study was therefore to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance arthrography (MRA) in the detection of TFCC injury in the adult population.
