Description

The distal radioulnar joint is a uniaxial pivot synovial joint between the convex head of the ulna and the ulnar notch of the radius. Therefore, the radius pivots or moves around the relatively fixed ulna. The joint is stabilized by the dorsal and palmar radioulnar ligaments (or the distal radioulnar ligament group).

The distal radioulnar joint recess is then centered within the ultrasound image, and the needle is placed through the skin approximately 0.5 cm below the center of the distal aspect of the ultrasound transducer and advanced using an out-of-plane approach, with the needle trajectory adjusted under real-time ultrasound guidance, to enter the distal radioulnar recess.
