The ligaments of the human wrist and their functional significance.

Anatomical Record 1976 November
The ligamentous anatomy of the wrist was analyzed by studying (1) 28 dissected human wrists, (2) and by examination of 19 wrist injuries created mechanically. Six volar intracapsular ligaments are described, two stabilizing the distal carpal row, three stabilizing the proximal carpal row and one stabilizing the proximal scaphoid pole. More specific terminology for these ligaments is proposed. An explanation of how these ligaments participate in the mechanical functioning of the carpus is advanced. Mechanically created wrist injuries had ruptures of specific ligaments as described augmenting a need for a more specific terminology. Suspected mechanisms of injury in perilunate and lunate dislocations are mentioned based upon the functional understanding of the intracapsular ligaments.
