Lateral Radial Ligament Injuries

The lateral radial ligament of the MCP joint of the thumb (the side ligament away from the palm) is less commonly injured. The mechanism of injury is usually a forceful rotation of a bent MCP joint. Injuries to this ligament are treated in a similar fashion to those of the ulnar ligament. The conservative regimen and indications for surgery are identical.
