    Wrist Pain- UT Split Tear, Diagnosis and Treatment

Mayo Clinic Orthopedic Surgeon Richard Berger describes the process that led him to discover a common cause of mysterious wrist pain, called a split tear of the ulnotriquetal (UT) ligament. The UT is a ligament housed within the ulnar side of the wrist, connecting two forearm bones, and located at the axis of the wrist's rotation.

Dr. Richard Berger describes the ulnar fovea sign, a simple test he developed that has 93 percent specificity in diagnosing a type of mysterious wrist pain that can be surgically repaired with a 95 percent success rate.
