About Ulnar Impaction Syndrome

When two bones contact each other, it is known as impaction. Ulnar impaction syndrome occurs when the ulnar bone in the forearm puts pressure or hits one of the wrist bones, specifically the lunate bone. This is not normal, and can cause pain, in addition to arthritis of the joint. Ulnar impaction syndrome causes pain when moving or flexing the wrist.

About Arthroscopic Treatment of Ulnar Impaction Syndrome

Arthroscopic treatment of ulnar impaction syndrome is a minimally invasive procedure that shaves down a portion of the ulnar bone, to alleviate the impaction. The advantage of this procedure is smaller scars and quicker return to work.

This is not the only treatment option, and all options should be discussed with your hand surgeon to determine which procedure is the best one for you.
