Program Description 

Injuries to the triangular fibrocartilage complex, including instability of the distal radio-ulnar joint can be difficult to manage.  There is a broad range of diagnostic tools and treatment options available.  The practicing hand surgeon may have difficulty selecting how aggressive or not to be in the workup and treatment of patients with this injury or suspicion thereof.
During this live webinar, the expert consultants present and discuss submitted cases and some from their own experience for maximum benefit of all the participants during the webinar.  

Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate improved knowledge of the TFCC/DRUJ stabilizers.
  • Describe how TFCC/DRUJ stabilizers are affected by injury and subsequent reconstructive surgeries.
  • Demonstrate improved knowledge of anatomy and surgical treatment.

Participants are encouraged (but not required) to submit their own cases for discussion during this live webinar.
