        • Pathology

          TERMINOLOGY

          • Definitions

            • Lunatotriquetral (LT) ligament: Composed of dorsal and volar bands, thin central membrane
            • Along with scapholunate (SL) ligament, creates water-tight separation between radiocarpal and midcarpal wrist compartments
            • Volar intercalated segment instability (VISI): Instability pattern secondary to dissociation of lunate from triquetrum → palmar tilt
