Morphologic Aspects of Abductor digiti minimi Muscle in the Hand
SUMMARY: The Abductor digiti minimi muscle, and the other hypotenar muscles, frequently presents anatomical variations.
In dissecations of 40 formolized hands, we objectified to study the morphology and variations of the Abductor digiti minimi muscle.
The results found in the research allow to affirm that the Abductor digiti minimi muscle is formed by two muscular beams in the biggest part of the cases.
KEY WORDS: Anatomy; Hand; Abductor digiti minimi muscle; Museles.
Muscle power were grade 5/5 in the shoulder girdle, 4/5 in the extensor digitorum communis, flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU), flexor carpi radialis (FCR) and 3/5 in the abductor pollicis brevis (APB), opponens pollicis (OP), dorsal and palmar interossei (10), abductor digiti minimi
