TFCC Tears – Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex Tear

The triangular fibrocartilage complex is a cartilage structure that cushions the small wrist bones and is located on the small finger side of the wrist. It also keeps the ends of the two bones in the forearm (the radius and the ulna) stable when the forearm rotates or when the hand grasps an object. Symptoms of a TFCC tear include pain on wrist movement from side to side, pain at the base of the small finger side of the wrist, swelling, and/or loss of grip strength.
