Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We describe here an unusual case of volar dislocation of the radiocarpal joint due to a complete tear of the dorsal radiocarpal ligament. Plain radiographs taken at initial presentation did not reveal any obvious abnormality. There was no associated bony lesion or intrinsic wrist ligament injury. Radiocarpal dislocations should be considered in the diagnosis of high-energy wrist injuries, even when initial radiographs look normal. The importance of a high index of suspicion in high velocity wrist injuries and need for further evaluation and imaging is highlighted.
