Right Wrist Fracture, Arthritis, and Scar Tissue, with Surgical Repair
This exhibit depicts the post-traumatic complications of a right wrist fracture with surgical repairs. Pre-op conditions include: a fracture of the ulnar styloid, articular damage to the radioulnar joint, ulnar collateral ligament avulsion, and scar tissue entrapment of the ulnar nerve. Post-operatively, the ulnar head has been removed, and the ulnar nerve has been released from entrapment. The ulnar collateral ligament has been debrided of bone fragments and repaired with sutures. The triangular fibrocartilage complex has also been sutured and reattached to the radius.
