The conference aims to analyze the post-traumatic instability of the two articulations in question.

Unlike other anatomical areas such as the shoulder or the knee, the analysis of wrist and elbow instabilities has only recently had adequate space in the scientific literature.

It should be considered that wrist and elbow traumatology is part of the daily activity of a specialist in orthopedics and traumatology: just think that only the wrist is probably the most seen traumatized segment in emergency room access.

The radiographic study allows to highlight the skeletal lesions associated with the trauma of these two joints, but not always to identify the associated capsulo-ligament lesions. It should also be considered that the aforementioned ligament injuries can become unprocessed at various distances of time, while still remaining associated, from an anatomo-pathological and physio-pathological point of view, to the initial trauma.

We will therefore try, in the assigned reports, to point out which lesions are responsible for the appearance of joint instability, which skeletal lesions are often associated with and which diagnostic-therapeutic approaches to be adopted.
