In high energy injuries and those associated greater arc injuries, a traction view may be beneficial if there is significant overlap of the carpal bones
or associated fractures.

and osteolysis of the proximal end of metacarpal bones as well as the resorbed distal end of ulna and radius.

The palmar carpal ligament (PCL) is a thick, dense estruture that firmly attaches to the carpal bones
and forms the dorsal wall of the CT (REEF, 1998).
ON typically develops in the hip, knee, shoulder, ankle joint, and carpal bones
. The collapse and deformity of the necrotized tissue can cause pain or functional impairment and may lead to the development of osteoarthritis, necessitating joint replacement or arthrodesis.
Depending on the carpal bones
, stopping at one basic rotation is sometimes better than performing two rotations or the full 3D transform.
An X-ray survey showed osteopenia, generalized (proximal tibia, distal femur, and proximal phalanges) epiphyseal dysplasia, and tubulation deformities in the carpal bones
and phalanges, but there were no abnormal findings in vertebral and pelvic bones (Figure 1).
Head Doctor Mario Malovic, MD, showed complete overview of the epidemiology, classification, diagnosis, conservative and surgical treatment of the fractures of carpal bones
and especially fractures in the area of metacarpal bones, illustrated with interesting cases.
This suggests that in cases of these conditions, coalition of carpal bones
should be considered as a differential diagnosis.
We also observed punched-out bony erosions in the carpal bones

The carpal tunnel is a closed compartment which is surrounded by carpal bones
on three walls and the transverse ligament on the roof.
Commonly fractures among the carpal bones
are scaphoid (7080%), triquetral (7-20%) and trapezium (5%)\ Fractures of the pisiform are extremely rare and frequently associated with other carpal or distal radial injuries.
Both fore limbs were pulled out of vulva and partial fetotomy was performed by cutting at knee joint of both limbs by retaining first row of carpal bones
to radius and ulna (Fig.1).
Scaphoid injury is the most common pathology of the carpal bones
