Ulnar Bone Sticking Out On Left Wrist

Posted , 4 users are following.

I had a multi-injury accident almost 12 years ago. My left hand was involved and a ligament tear was repaired, in 2008. Now my question is....how can the ulnar be so pronounced so many years later? I would rather think it would have been detected before now.But now in 2017, it is very noticeable and I experience pain, occasionally (effecting strength issues in my left hand). Any ideas regarding the Ulnar bone? Thanks, Carl

    You could have Madelungs Deformity, this is a rare condition that is normally classed as a birth defect but it can also be brought on following an injury.

    It's diagnosed by x rays but you will need to mention if Madelungs Deformity is present as it's not something they would normally look for.
