dc.description.abstractCarpal instability is predominantly caused by trauma and presents as a painful wrist with signs and symptoms of weakness, clicking, clunking and a sense of giving way. Wrist arthroscopy is widely regarded as the 'gold standard' in diagnosing and understanding carpal instability. This article is based on an extensive literature search to evaluate the evidence behind the use of wrist arthroscopy in the assessment and management of these patients. There is convincing evidence supporting the role of arthroscopy in diagnosis and assessment of factors involved in the development of carpal instability, but weak evidence for the effectiveness of arthroscopic techniques in the actual treatment of this condition. The article reviews mechanisms behind, and the role for arthroscopy in the management of scapholunate, lunotriquetral, midcarpal and radiocarpal instability. It also presents how the author incorporates the 'evidence-base' into an 'experience-based' clinical practice.en
