By Mohamed Al Khayarin, Mohamed Al Ateeq Al Dosari, Shibly Abdul Basith and Mohammed Waseemuddin


Trans-scaphoid volar dislocation of the lunate with displacement into the distal forearm proximal to the radiocarpal joint is an extremely rare, high energy injury with extensive ligament disruption. They are unstable and require open reduction and internal fixation with repair of ligaments. They are associated with significant morbidity and loss of function. We report the case of a patient with this injury. Open reduction, internal fixation and ligament repair were done. The patient had a good functional outcome
