What is Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex Injury?

The Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex (TFCC) is a cartilage structure located within the ulnar side (small finger side) of the wrist, which acts to cushion and support the carpals (wrist bones) while stabilising the wrist end of the radius and ulnar bones. Injury to the TFCC typically presents as two different types of tears:

● Type 1 tears are traumatic tears typically following a fall onto an outstretched hand.
● Type 2 tears are chronic and are typically degenerative in nature occurring over time with age and repetitive overuse injuries.

TFCC injuries present as pain over the ulnar side of the wrist made worse with lateral (side) bending and wrist rotation as well as swelling, painful clicking and/or a possible loss of grip strength.
