1

radiocarpal joint
-carpal bones involved

scaphoid
lunate
triquetrum articulates via a fibrocartilaginous disc

2

how does the ulna articulate at the wrist joint?

does not articulate with the carpal bones
has a fibrocartilaginous disk to the radius

3

distal radioulnar joint
-how are the radius and ulna attached
-how do they articulate at this joint?

attached the entire extent of the forearm by an interosseus membrane
distal radioulnar joint has an articular joint with the ulnar notch of the radius "rolling" on the ulna

4

radiocarpal ligament names

radial and ulnar collateral ligaments

5

ligaments of the MCP, PIP and DIP joints

radial and ulnar collateral ligaments

6

where is the longitudinal axis in the hand

through the 3rd finger

7

thumb actions

radial abduction/adduction
palmar abduction/adduction
opposition
MP flexion/extension
IP flexion/extension

8

finger MCP actions

flexion/extension
abduction/adduction
rotation

9

finger PIP and DIP actions

flexion/extension

10

finger rotation is technically_____, since the MCP has ____ degrees of freedom

technically circumduction, a movement that outlines a cone
MCP has only 2 degrees of freedom

11

thumb radial abduction/adduction
-what is another name?
-where does this motion occur
-what plane is it in?

flexion/extension of thumb
occurs at CMC joint
in frontal (coronal) plane

12

palmar abduction/adduction
-what is another name
-where does this motion occur
-what plane is it in

abduction/adduction
occurs at CMC
in sagittal plane

13

fascia of wrist and hand
-continuation of
-fascial thickenings occur where and are named _____

continuation of antebrachial fascia (deep fascia of forearm)
thickenings
-near distal end of forearm
-flexor retinaculum (anterior)
-extensor retinaculum (posterior)

14

flexor and extensor retinaculi of wrist
-function

fulcrums for the tendons of the forearm flexors and extensors

15

flexor retinuaculum of wrist
-function (apart from acting as a pulley)
-some texts say ____ performs this function

closes off the carpal groove (sulcus) for the formation of the carpal tunnel
some texts say a transverse carpal ligament performs this function

16

flexor retinaculum of wrist vs. transverse carpal ligament

flexor retinaculum
-made of superficial collagen fibers running transversely as part of antebrachial fascia
transverse carpal ligament
-attached to
--carpal bones
--tubercles of the scaphoid and trapezium (radially)
--pisiform and hook of the hamate (ulnar side)
we will consider them to be the same in this class

17

deep fascia of the palm
-thin over...
-thickened along...

thin
-thenar eminence
-hypothenar eminence
dthick
-middle of palm as palmar aponeurosis

18

what marks the lateral and medial boundaries of the central compartment of the palm
-central compartment is separated from...

lateral and medial septa mark the boundaries
separates from the thenar (lateral) and hypothenar (medial) eminences

19

central compartment of palm
-palmar extension of...
-carries...
-this fascial space is continuous with...

palmar extension of carpal tunnel
carries
-tendons of the superficial and deep digital flexor muscles
continuous with the fascial plane separating the superficial and deep muscles of the anterior compartment of the forearm

20

if the central compartment of the palm is penetrated (such as by puncture wounds from a drill bit), what can happen?

uncontrolled infection can spread into the forearm

21

what other areas on the palm can be potential spaces for harboring infections

thenar eminence
hypothenar eminence
adductor pollicis muscle

22

dorsal surface of the hand surface markings

tendons of extensor digitorum (best seen with digits extended and abducted)
veins
-part of the dorsal venous plexus of the hand
-a number can be seen to enter the cephalic vein on the lateral side of the wrist

23

palmar surface of the hand surface markings

transverse and longitudinal fissures
-within thick skin of palm
digital flexion creases
-mark the levels of the MCP joint (proximal digital crease), PIP (middle digital crease), and DIP (distal digital crease)

24

nerves of the hand

nerves of the forearm
median
ulnar
radial

25

which muscles in the hand do the median and ulnar nerves control

short muscles of the hand

26

what muscles of the hand does the radial nerve control

entirely sensory over the dorsolateral part of the hand and thumb

27

median nerve
-enters hand via ____ and with _____

enters hand via carpal tunnel with...
tendons of
-flexor digitorum superficialis
-flexor digitorum profundus
-flexor pollicis longus

28

median nerve recurrent branch
-location
-function

location
-seen on the surface of the thenar eminence
-moved deep and proximally to be seen branching just distal to the flexor retinaculum
function
-motor nerve to thenar eminence muscles (except adductor pollicis)

29

median nerve motor function

motor innervation to lumbricals 1 and 2

30

median nerve sensory innervation
