Arthroscopic diagnosis and treatment of dorsal wrist ganglion

J Hand Surg Br. 2001 Dec;26(6):547-9. doi: 10.1054/jhsb.2001.0620.


Thirty-seven patients with dorsal wrist ganglia underwent arthroscopic resection. The mean follow-up was 20 months, and no complications were encountered. The ganglia were classified into three types according to their arthroscopic appearance. This classification helps to determine the amount of dorsal capsular resection required.
