Hand and Wrist Problems

Test Your Knowledge


What is the structure and function of the Scapholunate Interossesous Ligament (SLIL) of the Hand?

What occurs with rupture of the SLIL?

What clinical test/s can you use to potentially diagnose SLIL ruptures?


The SLIL is an intra-articular ligament providing the main stability to the scaphoid.

Complete rupture of this ligament leads to instability of the wrist.

Watson’s test can be used. Other clinical tests and objective measures, that measure local mechanics and hand function respectively, should also be considered to assist in the diagnosis.

Do you need to get to grips with hand and wrist injuries?

This question and answer are from leading expert Ian Gatt, tutor on the Online Mini Series The Hand and Wrist. Read on for easy online CPD with fully flexible learning.
