We report this case of isolated pisiform
fracture on account of its rarity, propensity to be missed and unfamiliarity of many general orthopaedic surgeons with this rare condition.
8) Tenderness of the TFCC during palpation distal to the ulnar styloid and proximal to the pisiform
, between the tendons of the ECU and flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU) indicates a positive ulnar fovea sign.
Its tendon began at almost same level as that of ulnar head, passed distally on the lateral aspect of the tendon of the ulnar head and slightly proximal to the wrist the two tendons joined together to form a common tendon which ended in the pisiform
Increased median nerve cross-sectional area at radioulnar and pisiform
levels for the patient group can be observed in figures 1 and 2.
A hypothetical case involving a very stiff, non irritable lower cervical joint was selected as it was thought to be the area of the spine where clinicians would use the maximum force through their thumbs without reverting to the use of alternative hand positions such as using the pisiform
(commonly used during thoracic and lumbar mobilisation techniques).
Phascogale tapoatafa, Neophascogale lorentaii), the muscle has only one insertion via a strong tendon onto the pisiform

The partial skeleton (ET 5417) consists of a cervical and a thoracic vertebra, two teeth, a pisiform
, and portions of a scapula and two metapodials.
bones can found on which part the human body?
At the Wrist: The SUA passed superficial to the flexor retinaculam just lateral to the pisiform
The reference electrode was placed over the pisiform
bone on one hand.
The ulnar nerve travels through the canal of Guyon (ulnar nerve tunnel) along the ulnar aspect of the wrist and is the most ulnar structure in the canal, in close proximity to the pisiform
and hook of the hamate.
