(a) Carpal dislocations These are a spectrum of injuries comprising ligamentous injuries with or without associated fractures. The mechanism is often high-energy trauma in young males. These injuries occur in a sequence as ligaments around the lunate fail in a radial to ulnar direction.
In children, the pubis, ischium and ilium remain separated by a Y-shaped cartilage (called the triradiate cartilage) which fuses in puberty to form the acetabulum. In addition, there are other small accessory ossiﬁcation centres, which should not be mistaken for fractures. Cartilage and joints The pubic symphysis is well visualised and should be checked for alignment, widening, asymmetry or overlapping bones. The symphysis pubis shows widening of the joint space in AP compression injuries. In vertical shear or injury to the pelvis from a fall, superior displacement of the symphysis can be seen.
Subsequent CT bony reconstruction (b) performed the same day, did not demonstrate a fracture. Coronal STIR MRI (c) performed 4 days later due to ongoing pain reveals extensive bone oedema and a subtle linear fracture. 22 Triquetral fracture. 23 Scapholunate dissociation. AP radiograph showing widening of the scapholunate distance in comparison with the other intercarpal spaces. 24 Transscaphoid perilunate dislocation. (a) AP view. Note the disruption of Gilula’s arcs. (b) Lateral view. Note the loss of normal lunocapitate alignment, with the capitate displaced dorsally.
