Abstract

Axial fracture-dislocations are rare, high-energy injuries. Although cases of axial fracture-dislocations are reported in the literature, there are few reports of a patient who suffered a combined perilunate injury with an ulnar axial dislocation of the hand. This case report describes the anatomical injury and operative treatment of a patient who suffered this injury and discusses the importance of associated soft tissue management.
