Setup, Surface Anatomy, and Portals
Ulnar-sided wrist pain has been the proverbial black box of the wrist. The role of wrist arthroscopy has steadily grown from a mostly diagnostic tool to a valuable adjunctive procedure in the treatment of an expanding list of ulnar-sided wrist disorders. A thorough wrist examination is integral to any arthroscopic assessment; however, although wrist arthroscopy can identify an anatomic abnormality, it cannot be used to differentiate between an asymptomatic degenerative condition vs. a pathologic lesion which is the pain generator.
