About 60-70% of ganglion cysts are found in dorsal part of the wrist. This study compared aspiration followed by intra-lesional steroid (triamcinolone acetate) injection and surgical excision in the management of dorsal wrist ganglion.

The patients were divided to two groups undergoing two different treatment modalities including 68 patients of aspiration with intralesional triamcinolone acetonide injected into the cyst (group A) and 18 patients with surgical excision (group B). Follow up time was 1, 3, 6 and 12 months.
