By Shiju A Majeed and S Manoj Kumar

Abstract

Transstyloid, transscaphoid, transtriquetral perilunate dislocations are extremely rare carpal dislocations. We report a 24-year-old male who presented with this rare injury pattern four weeks after sustaining trauma. The patient underwent open reduction and internal fixation via dorsal approach. Reduction was assisted by the use of Joshi’s Distraction System. Scaphoid fracture healed by 16 weeks. At 2 years follow-up patient has good range of motion around wrist without any discomfort
