distal row

  • Then, one side of the arthroplasty is placed upon the distal row and the other side on the distal radius.
  • The distal row is more rigid as its transverse arch moves with the metacarpals.
  • The trapezoid is found within the distal row of carpal bones.
  • The capitate is found within the distal row of carpal bones.
  • First, the proximal row is removed and the distal row is fastened to the metacarpals.
  • There are three distal prolongations of the midcarpal joint cavity between the four bones of the distal row.
  • The hamate is found within the distal row of carpal bones, and abuts the metacarpals of the little finger and ring finger.
  • The trapezium is found within the distal row of carpal bones, and is directly adjacent to the metacarpal bone of the thumb.
  • The proximal transverse arch of the palm is formed by the distal row of carpal bones.
  • It is the smallest bone in the distal row.
  • Because the proximal row is simultaneously related to the articular surfaces of the radius and the distal row, it adapts constantly to these mobile surfaces.
  • The major portion of the cavity is located between the distal surfaces of the scaphoid, lunate, and triquetrum and proximal surfaces of the four bones of the distal row.
  • In the proximal row a limited degree of mobility is possible, but the bones of the distal row are connected to each other and to the metacarpal bones by strong ligaments that make this row and the metacarpus a functional entity.
  • In primitive fossil amphibians, such as Eryops, the carpus consists of three rows of bones; a proximal row of three carpals, a second row of four bones, and a distal row of five bones.
  • The carpometacarpal (CMC) joints are five joints in the wrist that articulate the distal row of carpal bones and the proximal bases of the five metacarpal bones.
  • The intercarpal articulations (articulations of the carpus) can be subdivided into three sets of articulations: Those of the proximal row of carpal bones, those of the distal row of carpal bones, and those of the two rows with each other.
  • The midcarpal joint is formed by the scaphoid, lunate, and triquetral bones in the proximal row, and the trapezium, trapezoid, capitate, and hamate bones in the distal row.
  • While flexion and extension consist of movements around a pair of transverse axes -- passing through the lunate bone for the proximal row and through the capitate bone for the distal row -- palmar flexion occurs mainly in the radiocarpal joint and dorsiflexion in the midcarpal joint.
