The pathology of the hand and wrist is diverse, usually secondary to trauma: fracture of the distal radius, ulna, scaphoid, metacarpal and phalanx, etc; but also frequently degenerative: osteoarthritis of the thumb and deformity of the fingers, stiffness of the wrist, etc.
Inflammation due to mechanical overload, flexor or extensor tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, spring or trigger fingers, Dupuytren's disease, De Quervain's disease, and ligament sprains and instabilities are common reasons for consultation.
The diagnostic tests commonly used are radiographs, ultrasound, CT and MRI, depending on the condition being studied.
Surgical treatment of these pathologies, if necessary, requires different types of surgical access as well as the use of wrist arthroscopy as a minimally invasive treatment method. Sometimes depending on the pathology, the use of infiltrations (steroids, hyaluronic acid, platelet-rich plasma-PRP) is indicated, which allows us to heal some pathologies and sometimes improve pain in the recovery process.
