Taleisnik highlighted the possibility of direct injury to this branch during volar approach to the wrist and to terminal fibers during skin incision in carpal tunnel release.
Radiographic evaluation revealed that radial inclination, volar tilt and radial height significantly increased (p<0.001), and radio-ulnar variance decreased (p=0.001) with surgery (Table-II).
With enough force, the lunate will dislocate over the volar rim of the radius through the space of Poirier were it hinges on the intact SRL ligament culminating in stage four of Mayfield's pattern of instability.

The dorsal and volar distal radioulnar ligaments, the main components of dorsal and volar marginal portions of TFC, respectively, extended from dorsal and volar rims of the sigmoid notch to the base of the ulnar styloid process.
Radiological examination of wrist showed old mal-uniting intra-articular fracture of distal end radius with gross volar subluxation of carpals with proximal migration and intra-articular incongruity (Figure 1a,b).
Extensor tendon rupture after volar plate fixation of distal radius fractures may occur secondary to screw prominence.
Since the first reports of volar locking compression plates, many case series have shown that they are effective devices for fixation of the distal radial fracture.4 Even in the elderly with frail, osteoporotic and impaired bone quality that can limit fracture stabilisation, LCP provides superior stiffness5 and axial loading strength with improved fixation compared to standard plates.
The net structure is observed in the humerus (in all sectors of the bone's distal part, at the junction of the lateral sector with the volar) and in the femoral bone (in the diaphysis of the lateral and dorsal, at the junction of the lateral sector with the dorsal, in the medial, at the junction of the dorsal sector with the medial).
Application of a volar plate with angle-stable fixation has been used successfully in a number of cohort studies but needs to be examined in stringent trials to determine if there is any benefit when compared with other treatment modalities [2].
