A carpal bone with a rounded head located between the TRAPEZOID BONE and the HAMATE BONE.
A specialized CONNECTIVE TISSUE that is the main constituent of the SKELETON. The principle cellular component of bone is comprised of OSTEOBLASTS; OSTEOCYTES; and OSTEOCLASTS, while FIBRILLAR COLLAGENS and hydroxyapatite crystals form the BONE MATRIX.
The continuous turnover of BONE MATRIX and mineral that involves first an increase in BONE RESORPTION (osteoclastic activity) and later, reactive BONE FORMATION (osteoblastic activity). The process of bone remodeling takes place in the adult skeleton at discrete foci. The process ensures the mechanical integrity of the skeleton throughout life and plays an important role in calcium HOMEOSTASIS. An imbalance in the regulation of bone remodeling's two contrasting events, bone resorption and bone formation, results in many of the metabolic bone diseases, such as OSTEOPOROSIS.
The amount of mineral per square centimeter of BONE. This is the definition used in clinical practice. Actual bone density would be expressed in grams per milliliter. It is most frequently measured by X-RAY ABSORPTIOMETRY or TOMOGRAPHY, X RAY COMPUTED. Bone density is an important predictor for OSTEOPOROSIS.
Bone loss due to osteoclastic activity.
The soft tissue filling the cavities of bones. Bone marrow exists in two types, yellow and red. Yellow marrow is found in the large cavities of large bones and consists mostly of fat cells and a few primitive blood cells. Red marrow is a hematopoietic tissue and is the site of production of erythrocytes and granular leukocytes. Bone marrow is made up of a framework of connective tissue containing branching fibers with the frame being filled with marrow cells.
The five cylindrical bones of the METACARPUS, articulating with the CARPAL BONES proximally and the PHALANGES OF FINGERS distally.
The region of the HAND between the WRIST and the FINGERS.
The eight bones of the wrist: SCAPHOID BONE; LUNATE BONE; TRIQUETRUM BONE; PISIFORM BONE; TRAPEZIUM BONE; TRAPEZOID BONE; CAPITATE BONE; and HAMATE BONE.
The region of the upper limb between the metacarpus and the FOREARM.
A malignant neoplasm derived from cells that are capable of forming melanin, which may occur in the skin of any part of the body, in the eye, or, rarely, in the mucous membranes of the genitalia, anus, oral cavity, or other sites. It occurs mostly in adults and may originate de novo or from a pigmented nevus or malignant lentigo. Melanomas frequently metastasize widely, and the regional lymph nodes, liver, lungs, and brain are likely to be involved. The incidence of malignant skin melanomas is rising rapidly in all parts of the world. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 4th ed, p2445)

Impaction-fracture of the capitate and lunate: a case report. (8/11)

We report a 15-year-old girl who underwent a mid-carpal fusion for undiagnosed impaction-fractures of the capitate, lunate, and triquetrum after a fall on her outstretched left hand in a dorsiflexed and radially deviated position. The joint was dis-impacted, and the height of the lunate was restored using a cortical bone graft. The damaged proximal capitate articular surface was decorticated to facilitate fusion, as was the lunotriquetral articulation. Kirschner wires were inserted along the coronal plane. At the one-year follow-up, the patient had achieved a satisfactory range of motion and fusion of the capitate-lunate-triquetral articulations.  (+info)

10A. F. Gilulas lines are seen on AP or PA views of the wrist. This wrist must be in neutral radial ulnar deviation, and neutral flexion-extension. These lines represent the borders of the carpal bones. Three lines are present: (1) along the proximal margin of scaphoid, lunate, triquetrum; (2) distal margin of scaphoid, lunate, and triquetrum; and (3) proximal margin of capitates and hamate. Disruption in Gilula lines indicates dissociative ligamentous instability (Fig. 11). III. Lateral View of the Hand and Wrist A. The patient should be instructed prior to needle placement to advise the operator of any paresthesias or electric shock sensations in the distribution of the median nerve.

A digital traction system is disclosed in a hand application. A common traction plate spanning the length of the fingers and breadth of the hand may be mounted in a dorsal or is a palmar position. In the palmar position, the traction plate is anchored close to the base of the fingers or metacarpophalangeal joints by a hook and loop type fabric fastener such as that sold under the trademark VELCRO connecting the traction plate to a fingerless glove worn by the patient. Tension elements fastened to the traction plate are trained over rollers at the end of the plate and connected to finger traps which grip the patients fingers. In the dorsal position the plate is anchored by lugs fixed to the plate and passing between the fingers and engaging the crotches between the fingers. An auxiliary traction plate allows the thumb to be treated independently of the fingers if desired.
Calling the Fort Peck Rex three fingered is a bit of an exaggeration. Its not as if paleoartists are going to revert back to the practice of giving T. rex a more Allosaurus-like, three-fingered hand, as they had before good T. rex forelimbs were discovered in the latter half of the last century. The bone is actually a metacarpal, not a true digit, and is about the size of a human finger. It had no condyle, or knuckle, and didnt have phalanges connected to it. It wasnt a jointed finger. Further examination of the third metacarpal in this and other T. rex specimens reveals that it appears to have had some use in life, as its rather knobby, suggesting it had been injured and healed. [UPDATE: A kind commenter clarified, as I should have, that the metacarpal would have been contained within the hand, and not an extremity poking out of it. Its likely that the injury that may have occured to it was incidental, and not because it was specifically being used for something ...

The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Image) taken this afternoon at TRIA Orthopadedic Center revealed that forward Kevin Love suffered a re-fracture of his third metacarpal in his right hand. The injury occurred during the third quarter of Thursdays game at Denver. Love will be examined by Dr. Andy Weiland, a hand specialist at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, later this week. An update to Loves status will be provided after that examination. Love initially suffered a fracture of his third and fourth metacarpal in his right hand on Oct. 17. For the season, Love has played in 18 games and leads the Wolves in scoring (18.3 ppg), rebounds (14.0 rpg) and double-doubles (14). ...
In all surgeries with the patient standing under chemical and physical restraint, patient compliance is of the utmost importance. All fractures of the third metacarpal or metatarsal condyles and sagittal fracture of the first phalanx are not amenable to internal fixation with the horse standing, and young unhandled horses may not have a suitable disposition for standing surgical treatment of septic pedal osteitis, or implantation and removal of transphyseal screws.

Kienböck disease is a condition that typically occurs in the at-risk patient, in the at-risk aspect of the proximal condyle of the at-risk lunate. In the active male, repetitive loading causes the stress fracture that commences in the single layer proximal subchondral bone plate. The lunate fracture commences at the point the lunate cantilevers over the edge of the distal radius, and then takes on the shape of the radius. We postulate that the stress fracture violates the parallel veins of the venous subarticular plexus-leading to localized venous hypertension and subsequent ischemia and edema of the fatty marrow ...
1) Hook of the hamate fracture. The hamate bone is on the pinky side of the wrist and can cause pain and ultimately can break in any racquet or stick sport. Baseball players are most at risk. We believe that the pressure from the baseball bat exerts a force on this unusually shaped bone. Over time, pain can develop but initially it might be minor for some patients. But once the bone breaks, more significant pain develops. If not treated over months or years, other problems can develop related to nearby structures including flexor tendons and the ulnar nerve ...

In this study, the development of a mechanostatistical model of three-dimensional cortical bone remodelling informed with in vivo equine data is presented. The equine model was chosen as it is highly translational to the human condition due to similar Haversian systems, availability of in vivo bone strain and biomarker data, and furthermore, equine models are recommended by the US Federal Drugs Administration for comparative joint research. The model was derived from micro-computed tomography imaged specimens taken from the equine third metacarpal bone, and the Frost-based mechanostat was informed from both in vivo strain gauges and biomarkers to estimate bone growth rates ...

Six Bones for Six Bones was first performed in 2015 by the trombone studio of the College-Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati. Each movement of this sextet describes a different skeletal bone. The calcaneus, or ankle bone, is key in jumping or leaping; accordingly, the trombones repeatedly jump across partials. The ossicles are small bones in the inner ear, dysfunction of which can cause ringing in the ears, or tinnitus. The mandible, or jawbone, is essential in speech, or jawboning. The frontal bone overlies, and co-evolved with, the frontal lobe of the brain, responsible for higher functions, as in holding two contradictory thoughts at once. The femur or thigh bone is necessary for walking, or, as here, learning new dance steps. Grants textbook of anatomy states that, in forming a fist to strike a blow, the impact surface falls on the second and third metacarpals, or proximal bones of the dominant hand. So the last movement is something of a boxing match ...

Toggle abstract We consider specific additive decompositions d = d1 + ... + dn of metrics, defined on a finite set X (where a metric may give distance zero to pairs of distinct points). The simplest building stones are the slit metrics, associated to splits (i.e., bipartitions) of the given set X. While an additive decomposition of a Hamming metric into split metrics is in no way unique, we achieve uniqueness by restricting ourselves to coherent decompositions, that is, decompositions d = d1 + ... + dn such that for every map f:X → R with f(x) + f(y) ≥ d(x, y) for all x, y ε{lunate} X there exist maps f1, ..., fn: X → R with f = f1 + ... + fn and fi(x) + fi(y) ≥ di(x, y) for all i = 1,..., n and all x, y ε{lunate} X. These coherent decompositions are closely related to a geometric decomposition of the injective hull of the given metric. A metric with a coherent decomposition into a (weighted) sum of split metrics will be called totally split-decomposable. Tree metrics (and more ...
OKLAHOMA CITY - Timberwolves forward Kevin Love will undergo surgery next week to repair a fractured bone in his right hand and will miss at least eight to 10 weeks, the team confirmed Wednesday, Jan. 9.. Love flew to New York on Wednesday to be examined by hand specialist Dr. Andy Weiland, who recommended surgery on the third metacarpal bone that Love refractured during the third quarter of the Wolves game at Denver on Jan. 3. Love broke the third and fourth metacarpals on his right hand in October while doing knuckle push-ups at his home. Weiland examined Love for that injury but ruled he would not require surgery. Love was not as fortunate this time. Im disappointed for him, Wolves guard Luke Ridnour said before the Wolves game against Oklahoma City on Wednesday night. I know how bad he wants to be out there. To have this happen twice in the same year, you dont hear that too much. Its been our story all year. Weilands recommendation marks the latest setback in an injury-filled ...
In brain anatomy, the lunate sulcus or simian sulcus also known as the sulcus lunatus is a fissure in the occipital lobe found in humans and more often larger when present in apes and monkeys. The lunate sulcus lies further back of human brains but has a more frontal location in chimpanzees. The evolutionary expansion of the frontal areas of the lunate sulcus would have caused a shift in the particular location of the fissure. It has been hypothesized that evolutionary pressures resulted in the human brain undergoing internal reorganization to develop the capability of human language. Furthermore, this reorganization must have been implemented during early maturity and is likely responsible for eidetic imagery in some adolescents. During early development, the neural connections in prefrontal cortex and posterior parietal lobe rapidly expand to allow capability for human language, while visual memory capacity of human brain would become limited. Biological studies have demonstrated that the ...

Treatment of lunate and perilunate dislocations with a combined approach and anchor repair of the dorsal scapholunate interosseous ligament ...
Introduction: Perilunate and lunate dislocations are uncommon high energy injuries and have extensive soft tissue, cartilaginous and bony damage. The most common pattern is trans-scaphoid perilunate fracture dislocation which constitutes approximately 50% of these injuries. Unusual injury pattern like Scaphocapitate syndrome can occur with fracture through scaphoid waist and capitate that rotates the proximal capitate 180° so that its proximal articular surface points distally. With this case report, we would like to present a novel presentation of an uncommon wrist injury. Case report: We present a case of simultaneous lunate dislocation in one wrist and perilunate fracture dislocation (Scapho-capitate syndrome) in the contralateral wrist which occurred simultaneously in a young male following a two wheeler accident. The injury was missed initially at the primary treating centre. Upon diagnosis, the patient underwent open reduction and internal fixation along with ligament repair. The patient was

Osteoid osteoma is a painful, benign bony tumor affecting a predominantly young patient population, with 60% occurring between ages 10 and 20 years old and a male predominance.
Scaphocapitate arthrodesis with lunate excision was performed for treatment of advanced Kienböck disease in 17 patients (18 wrists). Ten were women and seven men. Five were Lichtmann Stage IIIA, 12 Stage IIIB, and one Stage IV. Minimum follow-up period was 24 months; mean follow-up was 10.7 years (range 2.3 to 22 years, SD 7.1). At the latest follow-up, six patients were very satisfied, nine were satisfied and two were disappointed. Pain was significantly decreased in all cases. Wrist mobility was unchanged. Grip strength was significantly increased. Consolidation of the arthrodesis was confirmed in 17 wrists. We encountered a scaphocapitate nonunion at 12 years follow-up and two cases of styloscaphoid arthritis at 17 and 22 years. Scaphocapitate arthrodesis with lunate excision performed in an advanced stage of Kienböck disease significantly alleviates pain, while preserving functional mobility and satisfactory grip strength in the long term. ...
Renowned paleoartist John Gurche brings the traditional techniques of figure drawing and anatomical art to the portrayal of our hominin ancestors. The result is a visual record of the evolving human form that feels alive in a way no scientific illustration could match. While science provides an underpinning to Gurches art, his works primary purpose is to forge an aesthetic connection to the hominins that preceded us on Earth, capturing their humanity. With essays by leading authorities, Lost Anatomies carries the story of human evolution from apes and early hominins; to Australopithecus; to archaic Homo sapiens, including Homo erectus; to derived Homo sapiens, including Neanderthals and other species that are our most recent ancestors ...
