There is still controversy regarding the value of arthroscopic suture of triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) peripheral tears compared with open transosseous repair because only the latter method restores foveal insertions of TFCC in case of distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) instability. Five classes of TFCC peripheral tears are recognized in a treatment-oriented algorithm based on arthroscopic findings, and indications to proper treatment are set accordingly.
