Transulnar Styloid Foveal TFC Reconstruction: With a Palmaris Longus Tendon Graft

Gregory I. Bain, Chen Gang Tu

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

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.
