Although they do not use the same approach to treat scapholunate ligament lesions (Marc Garcia-Elias opens the wrist and Christopher Mathoulin tries to process them arthroscopically), they have both reached the same conclusion:
- the scapholunate ligament is more than just an interosseous ligament but rather a real scapholunate ligament complex with intrinsic and extrinsic components;
- proprioception is involved in the stability of scapholunate space;
- and early diagnosis and treatment seem essential to obtain good results.
This peer-to-peer conversation between these two friends is not a battle, but rather an extremely modern development on a long debated topic... have fun!
