Abstract

Symptomatic lunotriquetral coalition is very rare and need open surgery after failure of conservative treatment. We report a case of a symptomatic congenital lunotriquetral coalition type 1 according to the Minaar classification, at the left wrist of a 14-year-old boy. We performed an arthroscopic treatment with two compression screws and without cancellous bone grafting. Healing was obtained at 2 months postoperatively.
