What Are TFCC (Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex) Tears?
The triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) is a cartilage structure located on the small finger side of the wrist that, cushions and supports the small carpal bones in the wrist. The TFCC keeps the forearm bones (radius and ulna) stable when the hand grasps or the forearm rotates. An injury or tear to the TFCC can cause chronic wrist pain. These are the common two types of tears:
- Type 1 tears are called traumatic tears. Falling on an outstretched hand and excessive arm rotation are the most common causes.
- Type 2 TFCC tears are degenerative or chronic. They can occur over time and with age. The degenerative process wears the cartilage down over time. Some inflammatory disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout, may also contribute to Type 2 TFCC tears.
Common symptoms include the following:
- Pain, at the base of the small finger side of the wrist
- Pain worsens as the wrist is bent from side to side
- Swelling in the wrist
- Painful clicking in the wrist
- Loss of grip strength
Anyone can get a TCFF tear, however, it occurs most often in those who fall on an outstretched hand. Athletes, especially, are at risk. It is most common with those who use a racquet, bat or club and those who put a lot of pressure on the wrist such as gymnasts. Degenerative tears are more common in people over 50. Medical attention should be sought as soon as possible after an injury to the wrist.
