• thumb
  • Since the median nerve provides sensory and motor functions to the thumb and three middle fingers, many symptoms may result. (nyhq.org)
  • Three phalanges are present on each finger and toe, with the exception of the thumb and large toe , which possess only two. (wikipedia.org)
  • The thumb and large toe do not possess a middle phalanx. (wikipedia.org)
  • The phalanx of the thumb has a pronounced insertion for the flexor pollicis longus (asymmetric towards the radial side), an ungual fossa, and a pair of unequal ungual spines (the ulnar being more prominent). (wikipedia.org)
  • The digits include a medial thumb (when viewed with the palm down), containing two phalanges, and four fingers, each containing three phalanges. (britannica.com)
  • The thumb is half the length of the hand and has two phalanges. (amphibiaweb.org)

  • The peripheral metacarpals (those of the thumb and little finger) form the sides of the cup of the palmar gutter and as they are brought together they deepen this concavity. (wikipedia.org)
  • toes of each foot
  • While the feet of most early paravians bore a single, large "sickle claw" on the second toe which was held retracted off the ground, Balaur had large retractable sickle claws on both the first and second toes of each foot. (wikipedia.org)
  • limbs
  • The skeletal manifestations affect the distal limbs and include short, proximally placed thumbs with hypoplastic thenar eminences, ulnar deviation of the second finger, clinodactyly of the fifth finger, short, medially deviated halluces, brachydactyly of the second to fifth toes, and shortening of the carpals and tarsals. (bmj.com)
  • Unlike other early members of the group Paraves, which includes Velociraptor, Troodon, and Archaeopteryx, this theropod had not just one but two large, retractable, sickle-shaped claws on each foot, and its limbs were proportionally shorter and heavier than those of its relatives. (wikipedia.org)
  • claw
  • The related genus Noasaurus has a raptorial ungual which was originally interpreted as a sickle-like claw on the foot, but has more recently been considered a claw of the hand. (wikipedia.org)
  • hoof
  • Chronic pain, by decreasing the willingness to bear weight on the foot, can induce secondary changes in the foot including contraction of the deep digital flexor tendon, hoof capsule, and remodeling of the distal phalanx. (thehorse.com)
  • Therefore
  • Alternatively, the loss of an abductable great toe and therefore the ability to grasp with the foot (a feature of all other primates) suggests A. afarensis was no longer adapted to climbing. (wikipedia.org)
  • normally
  • In humans and other great apes, another possible advantage of a plantigrade foot is that it may enhance fighting performance Plantigrade foot occurs normally in humans in static postures of standing and sitting. (wikipedia.org)
  • structures
  • The sheaths are tubular structures that surround part of the fingers. (nyhq.org)
  • Other terms are also used to describe the movement and actions of the hands and feet, and other structures such as the eye. (wikipedia.org)
  • causes
  • The causes of pain in the foot in laminitis vary with the phase of the disease and a differential diagnosis is essential to proper management. (thehorse.com)
  • large
  • We describe a large family with autosomal dominant inheritance of hypospadias, clinodactyly, and subtle foot malformations. (bmj.com)
