Wrist Arthroscopy or Triangular Fibrocartilage Disc 8 (Stock Footage)

The TFC is an articular discus that lies on the pole of the distal ulna. It has a triangular shape and a biconcave body; the periphery is thicker than its center. The central portion of the TFC is thin and consists of chondroid fibrocartilage; this type of tissue is often seen in structures that can bear compressive loads. This central area is often so thin that it is translucent and in some cases it is even absent.The peripheral portion of the TFC is well vascularised, while the central portion has no blood supply.
