Handgrip strength is an independent predictor of phalangeal
BMD in highly trained male athletes.
Congruity, or correspondence in character, is ascribed to the normal relationship between the MT and phalangeal
Each metacarpal segments to produce the final phalangeal
formula of 1-2-3-2 (from pre- to postaxial).
In a previous study Oyster and Smith compared measures of vertebral and phalangeal
bone density with bone strength.
This study was designed to outline the anatomy and MRI appearance of the normal ligaments and tendons in the hands including the UCL at the metacarpal phalangeal
joint (MCPJ) of the thumb, the central slip, the terminal tendon, and the flexor digitorum profundus (FDP) using cadaveric specimens and normal volunteers, review the common sports-related fingers and thumb deformity due to ligamentous and tendinous injuries, discuss the mechanisms of injuries, and illustrate the characteristics of MRI using the surgically proven cases of ligamentous and tendinous injuries.
Physical examination revealed anesthetic distal phalangeal
atrophy associated with severe deformity of the hands, hypochromic, anesthetic macular lesions (Figure 1), atrophy of the metatarsals and phalanges with severe deformity of the feet, and bilateral plantar perforations (Figure 2).
On her visit, the consulting surgeon noticed an improperly placed below elbow cast which was well past her metacarpal phalangeal
joints, greatly restricting movement of her left fingers.
The plain radiograph of his wrists showed cone-shaped epiphyses of the middle phalanges of the second digit of both hands with moderate deviation of the phalangeal
axis (Figures 4(a) and 4(b)).
Sole haemorrhage and necrosis of distal phalangeal
apex could be observed after hoof trimming (Fig.
Fixation choices for closed simple unstable oblique phalangeal
and metacarpal fractures.
bones are affected in 60% of cases, metacarpals in about 40%.
