Traumatic fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) tears are a common source of disabling ulnar sided wrist pain. Originally described by Palmer in 1981, our understanding of the anatomy and biomechanics of the TFCC, as well as of the diagnosis and treatment of its lesions, has been refined. The aim of this review was to summarize “the state of the art” on traumatic TFCC injuries from diagnosis to treatment.


KEY WORDS: Wrist; Wounds and injuries; Triangular fibrocartilage; Tears
