Volar capitate dislocation: A case report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


We present a rare injury involving a volar dislocation of the distal capitate with secondary median nerve compression. The injury was not recognized on the initial radiographs resulting in a delayed diagnosis and treatment. A satisfactory outcome was achieved following open reduction and internal fixation via dorsal and palmar approaches. This case illustrates the importance of careful review of radiographs for evidence of intercarpal injuries.
