Lunate Dislocation Copy

. . Please look at the lateral view of Illustration 72 below. You will notice that the longitudinal axis bisects the distal radius and the capitate axis but the lunate is not bisected by the axis line—— the lunate is dislocated


Illustration 72 Lunate Dislocation


The hallmark of the lunate dislocation is as follows :

The distal radius and capitate align with the longitudinal axis.

The lunate is out of alignment with the longitudinal axis ( usually a volar displacement ). . .

Now let us consider another case of misalignment of the trio :
