Dislocation of the midcarpal joint is a rare injury, usually caused by a high-energy trauma such as a fall or a direct blow to the wrist.
Diagnosis of this injury is usually made through physical examination, CT or MRI scans, and X-rays.
Differential diagnosis includes other wrist injuries such as fractures, sprains, and tendon injuries.
Treatment of this injury typically involves immobilization of the wrist, followed by physical therapy and/or surgical repair.
The prognosis of this injury is generally good, with most patients able to return to full function within six weeks of injury.
