Ha, Han, Chung, Kim, and An: Clinical Application of Wrist Arthrography after Trauma


One of the greatest diagnostic challenges that faces both orthopedic surgeons and the radiologists is the patient with a subacute or chronic wrist injury who has no obvious clinical or radiographic abnormality to explain the pain.
The wrist arthrography is used to evalute structures that can not be seen on plain radiography. These structures include the synovium, the intraarticular ligaments and the articular cartilage including the triangular fibrocartilage. The most inportant indication is persistent pain or limitation of motion after trauma.
We think that the wrist arthrography is to be used widly. We collected and analized the results of wrist arthrographies performed in 33 patients with traumaic painful wrist.
