• Radiocarpal
  • SLAC: Tenderness 1 cm above Lister's Tubercle Tests: Watson's test Finger extension test SNAC: Tenderness at the anatomical snuff box Painful pronation and supination when performed against resistance Pain during axial pressure Osteoarthritis between the radius bone and the carpals is indicated by a radiocarpal joint space of less than 2mm. (wikipedia.org)
  • anatomy
  • In human anatomy, the main role of the wrist is to facilitate effective positioning of the hand and powerful use of the extensors and flexors of the forearm, and the mobility of individual carpal bones increase the freedom of movements at the wrist. (wikipedia.org)
  • Read on to know about the definition, anatomy and functions of these bones. (primehealthchannel.com)
  • As far as what order to learn hand anatomy, it makes sense to start with the bones as they form the framework which all the other structures course through or attach to. (scrubnotes.com)
  • Due to the lack of published reports detailing feline carpal ligamentous anatomy, an assumption is made that the ligamentous structures of the ACB in cats are analogous to those of the dog ( Voss and others 2003 , Calvo and others 2009 ) (Fig 1). (bmj.com)
  • Carpal bone This article incorporates text in the public domain from the 20th edition of Gray's Anatomy (1918) Drake, Richard L. (wikipedia.org)
  • In older literature about human anatomy, the scaphoid is referred to as the navicular bone of the hand, since there is also a bone in a similar position in the foot which is called the navicular. (wikipedia.org)
  • articulation
  • It can be very difficult to imagine how the bones would look in articulation during excavation, and as such all material should be saved for closer inspection rather then losing valuable information (Larsen 1997). (wordpress.com)
  • Carpals in articulation. (wordpress.com)
  • The inferior surface is divided by two ridges into three facets, for articulation with the second, third, and fourth metacarpal bones, that for the third being the largest. (wikipedia.org)
  • it is bounded superiorly by a smooth, convex surface, for articulation with the scaphoid bone. (wikipedia.org)
  • The triquetral bone may be distinguished by its pyramidal shape, and by an oval isolated facet for articulation with the pisiform bone. (wikipedia.org)
  • radial
  • When palpated in this position, the bone will be felt to slide forward during radial deviation (wrist abduction) and flexion. (wikipedia.org)
  • ligament
  • The accessorioradial ligament originates from the radius and inserts on the medial proximobasilar aspect of the accessory carpal bone (ACB). (bmj.com)
  • The accessorioquartile ligament lies medial to this with a small insertion on the UCB but its main insertion on the fourth numbered carpal bone. (bmj.com)
  • it also affords attachment to the transverse carpal ligament. (wikipedia.org)
  • It may be the case that the ligament between the Capitate and the Scaphoid bone is also injured, is so this would be repaired at the same time. (wikipedia.org)
  • pterygoid bones
  • Also missing are the retroarticular process of the posterior (rear) lower jaw (another point of distinction from Tanystropheus), as well as additional teeth and a cavity between the pterygoid bones on the palate. (wikipedia.org)
  • On the palate of E. schroederi, the ectopterygoid bones overlap the pterygoid bones at their rear, as in Diploglossus and the gecko Coleonyx. (wikipedia.org)
  • acute
  • It is only when this cartilage degenerates that the bones scrape against one another and gives rise to pain that may range from mild to acute. (primehealthchannel.com)
  • medial
  • the medial and lateral surfaces are also articular where they are in contact with contiguous bones, otherwise they are rough and tuberculated. (wikipedia.org)
  • articulate
  • The presence of cartilage allows the bones or the joint to articulate and smoothly move against each another, without causing any discomfort or pain. (primehealthchannel.com)
  • It actually develops inside a tendon, and as such does not articulate with any other bone directly. (wordpress.com)
  • talus
  • In the foot, the talus bone was strongly reduced as in other titanosaurs, while the calcaneus was probably completely absent in Opisthocoelicaudia. (wikipedia.org)
