A TFCC tear is an injury to the triangular fibrocartilage complex, soft tissues in the wrist that cushion and support the carpal bones and help stabilize the forearm. Injuries range from mild to severe, but all can disable the wrist.
A wrist sprain occurs when the strong ligaments that support the wrist stretch beyond their limits or tear. This occurs when the wrist is bent or twisted forcefully, such as caused by a fall onto an outstretched hand. Wrist sprains are common injuries.
Hand trauma refers to any injury involving the fingers, hands, and wrists, including the tendons, ligaments, and nerves. From simple fingertip injuries to tendon injuries and fractures, hand injuries can be divided into these general categories: Burns, Lacerations, Fractures and Dislocations, High-Pressure Injection Injuries, Infections, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Amputations.
