• Identify visually and/or by palpation the location of the DIC ligament before making the initial capsular incision.

• Anatomic reduction of the scapholunate joint is critical and needs to be confirmed visually from both the mid-and radiocarpal joints as well as radiographically.

• It is important to understand the lateral "V" construct, which consists of the dorsal radiocar-pal ligament, distal intercarpal ligament, and dorsal components of the scapholunate and lunotriquetral ligaments, that allows indirect dorsal stability of the scaphoid throughout its range of motion.
