  • These elements build up a groove for the distal phalanges but ultimately do not fuse with them.
  • No other tendon has this same effect on the distal phalanx and the condition is correctly diagnosed without difficulty. Cited from Lameness of the Horse, by John Victor Lacroix
  • In the foot, the distal phalanges are flat on their dorsal surface.
  • A portion of the lateral aspect of the distal phalanx is occasionally exposed without fear of infection.
  • The distal phalanges are cone-shaped in most mammals, including most primates, but relatively wide and flat in humans.
  • Moreover, of all the bones of the hand, the distal phalanges are the first to ossify.
  • Some elements in the hands of the Talpa, formally described as distal phalanges, are actually the first to ossify.
  • Dorsal branches innervates the distal phalanges of the index, middle, and half ring fingers.
  • It finally attaches onto the base of the distal phalanx of the thumb.
  • The muscle fans out into four tendons (one to each of the second to fifth fingers) to the palmar base of the distal phalanx.
  • Therefore the hand is usually in the so-called interosseal position, with flexion of the proximal and extension of the middle and distal phalanges. Cited from Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine, Gould/Pyle
  • Tendonectomy involves cutting the deep digital flexor tendon of each claw, resulting in the cat being unable to move its distal phalanges.
  • The tendons then diverge on the back of the hand, and are inserted into the middle and distal phalanges of the fingers in the following manner.
  • Aside from the broken bones, the distal phalanges and the collar bone can undergo slow progressive deterioration.
  • This action can partially or completely rupture the FDP tendon at or near its attachment point on the distal phalanx.
  • However, Vulcanodon does not have reduced distal phalanges, which are seen in Shunosaurus and all more derived sauropods.
  • When clubbing is observed, it is helpful to check whether acroosteolysis of distal phalanges of fingers is present.
  • The distal phalanges of the elephant do not directly touch the ground, and are attached to the respective nail/hoof.
  • Passing through the third tendon compartment, it is inserted onto the base of the distal phalanx of the thumb.
  • Among the few known phalanges, the proximal phalange is shorter than the middle one and the distal phalanges are narrow and clawlike.
