The body of the hamate
lies on the dorsoulnar aspect of the wrist, with its hook (a.

Hook of the hamate
fractures tends to occur in the hand grasping the end of the club (the left hand for a right-handed-golfer).
Only the hamate
process of the prearticular is visible, being distinct, well developed and high.
5 cm, bounded by carpal bones and transverse ligaments attached to scaphoid, trapezoid and hamate
demonstrated successful treatment of nonunion of the hook of the hamate
with LIPUS (Fujioka et al.
The long axis (transverse diameter) and the short axis (anteroposterior diameter) of the median nerve, were evaluated on axial (transverse) plan evaluated on milimetric measurement of proximal (distal radioulnar joint level, RU), medium (pisiform bone level, P) and distal (level of the hamate
hook, H) parts of the carpal tunnel and the flattening ratio was established for each plane (by dividing long axis with short axis).
The proximal row of carpals includes the scaphoid, lunate, triquetrum and the pisiform; with the distal row containing the trapezium, trapezoid, capitate and hamate
The tendon is attached to the pisiform, and thence prolonged to the hamate
and fifth metacarpal bone by pisohamate and pisometacarpal ligaments.
In addition, the status of certain specific landmarks such as the ulnar sesamoid or hamate
bones can be used to obtain as estimate of the timing of the adolescent growth spurt.
He subsequently underwent surgery to remove the hook of the hamate
bone in his right hand.
In sports-related injuries, the bones most commonly involved are the scaphoid, hamate
, pelvis, talar dome, ribs and proximal femur.
This is most common in the ring and small metacarpals, and usually consists of a dorsal dislocation of the metacarpal bases on the hamate

Palm padding helps unload stress on the hamate
bone, where injuries frequently occur in sports that use a club, bat, or racquet," Dr.
