In brief: Two different cures

Central tears of the TFCC are treated with arthroscopic debridement as the central portion does not have adequate blood flow to heal.
The S-L ligament sometimes responds to arthroscopically guided percutaneous pinning, often requires repairer reconstruction to include dorsal capsulodesis. Seek care with board certified hand surgeon
