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).
Two patients had carpal bone
The clinical picture arising due to fracture of the pisiform associated with other fractures of the carpal bones
is dominated by signs and symptoms arising due to concomitant fractures, resulting in failure to detect the pisiform fracture.
The posteroanterior (PA) radiograph of a 51-year-old female patient showed an intraosseous lytic lesion of the right capitate bone (Figure 1(a)) that was associated with a marked radionuclide uptake in all carpal bones
using bone-granulocyte scintigraphy (Figure 1(b)) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated low to intermediate signal intensity of the lesion without soft-tissue extension (Figure 1(c)).
CBM for radicarpal joint is a physical therapy technique that includes moving the proximal row of carpal bones
either dorsally to promote wrist extension or to the palmar side to promote wrist flexion.
MRI often reveals carpal bone
cysts, commonly called bone ganglia, and demonstrates their relation to cortical defects, ligament injuries and associated soft tissue ganglia.
5 cm, bounded by carpal bones
and transverse ligaments attached to scaphoid, trapezoid, and hammate.
Scaphoid fracture is the most common fracture of the carpal bones
, representing 60%-70% of all carpal fractures.
showed delayed ossification and irregular margins.
The carpal tunnel is defined as an inelastic fibro-osseous structure composed by the carpal bones
and flexor retinaculum.
The trapezoid is infrequently injured due its position within the wrist, situated within strong intercarpal ligaments and between the base of the second metacarpal and carpal bones
(Afifi and Lu, 2011).
2,3,7) Manual workers tend to have more repetitive trauma to the carpal bones
leading to degenerative changes and subsequent loss of lunate blood supply.
In this case, not only scaphoid fracture and rupture of scapholunate ligaments were seen, but also excessive displacement due to severity of trauma resulted in carpal bones
free of any ligamentous attachment.
Only a true lateral view will show the dorsal displacement of the metacarpals relative to the carpal bones
Interosseous ligaments refer to ligaments connecting carpal bones
, whereas extraosseous ligaments connect the ulna and radius to the carpal bones
