The triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) is actually more complex than it appears to be. Arthroscopy of the wrist has helped to better understand the various insertions of this proximal and distal triangular complex and to detect these lesions. The adapted treatment of these lesions made it possible to prevent failures of the conventional arthroscopic reinsertions with the disappearance of the associated distal ulnar instabilities when only a part of the problem was treated. The healing potential of the TFCC largely depends on its vascularization. This video shows the arthroscopic repair of a peripheral distal tear of the TFCC with the in-out technique.
