Description: Although our understanding of human anatomy has grown rapidly, the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) remains one of the least understood joints in the body. Problems of the DRUJ have been called by Palmer as the "low back pain of the wrist". Over the last 15 years, there has been a tremendous surge in research involving the anatomy, function, and treatment of DRUJ pathology. Yet, there is still no consensus as to the pathomechanics and the treatment of DRUJ pathology.
