Disclosures

  • * The wrist maintains stability through complex articulations of the carpal bones, dependent upon intrinsic and extrinsic ligaments.
  • * Injury to the scapholunate interosseous ligament may lead to dissociative carpal instability, abnormal carpal kinetics, and sometimes arthritis.
  • * The kinematics, kinetics, and self-stabilizing role of the tendons and their influence on the scapholunate interosseous ligament continue to be studied.
  • * Critical to successful treatment of scapholunate interosseous ligament injuries is timely and complementary therapy.
  • * There is currently no gold standard for a treatment algorithm for this condition.
