We describe an evolution of the senior author's technique in the repair or reconstruction of foveal triangular fibrocartilage complex tears. This technique uses a transulnar styloid approach, which gives superior access to the fovea, without disruption of secondary stabilizers. A free palmaris longus graft is used to stabilize and augment the triangular fibrocartilage complex with an interosseous anchor through an ulnar tunnel.
