The additional margins are the distal palmar flexion
crease, palmar flexion
PIP crease and laterally at the dorso-lateral junction.
The lines, called palmar flexion
creases, allow us to do this without any excessive stretching or creating loose skin.
Movements Average (Mean + SD) Palmar flexion
57.1 with SD 3.5 Dorsiflexion 63.3 with SD 3.2 Radial deviation 17.6 with SD 3.0 Ulnar deviation 24.1 with SD 4.4 At the end of six months, four patients had stiffness of wrist with reduced radial deviation.
Range of motion was 90[degrees] (30[degrees] in dorsal flexion and 60[degrees] in palmar flexion
from the neutral position of the wrist).
In the goniometric evaluation of the wrist dorsal flexion (WDF) and palmar flexion
(WPF), no significant difference was observed between the three measurements (Table 3).

Medium thickness plantar skin graft for the management of digital and palmar flexion
(17) A positive Mill's test is indicated with pain being reproduced at the medial elbow on resisted palmar flexion
of the wrist with a straight elbow.
The investigator took ROM measurements for the metacarpophalangeal joints, the interphalangeal joints, and the wrist (palmar flexion
, hyperextension, radial flexion, ulnar flexion).
of the wrist was not limited but dorsal flexion was limited to 70 degree because of wrist pain.
Mishra's test II: The subject is asked to abduct the thumb against resistance with the wrist in slight palmar flexion
Reduction was done with wrist in palmar flexion
and ulnar deviation.
