In brief: Laxity in the wrist

There are 8 small bones that make up the "wrist" in addition to the large long bones, the radius and ulna.
these bones are arranged in 2 rows of 4 each. CIND (carpal instability nondisso.) means there is anywhere from lig. laxity to dislocation between the 2 rows of bones. TX depends on how much laxity present, response to splint, h/o trauma & how bothersome sx are to you. See a hand surgeon.
