Triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) is one of the most important structures in the stabilization of distal radioulnar joint. Injuries to the triangular fibrocartilage complex are among the most common causes of ulnar sided wrist pain. As wrist arthroscopy has become increasingly widespread, arthroscopic treatment approaches of TFCC injuries have been focused. In recent years, wrist arthroscopy is the gold standard in the diagnosis and treatment of TFCC injuries in athletes, in particular. In this article, established treatment modalities were discussed in the treatment of acute TFCC injuries in athletes and recent advancements particularly in the treatment of type 1B peripheral TFCC tears.
