Atraumatic palmar midcarpal dislocation in a skeletally immature adolescent with hemiatrophy

J Hand Surg Am. 1999 Nov;24(6):1281-5. doi: 10.1053/jhsu.1999.1281.

Abstract

We report a late presentation of a palmar midcarpal dislocation in an adolescent female with open growth plates who had no history of antecedent wrist injury. Midcarpal arthrodesis improved function and eliminated progressive pain.
