In vivo length changes of carpal ligaments of the wrist during dart-throwing motion.
Summary of "In vivo length changes of carpal ligaments of the wrist during dart-throwing motion."
The dart-throwing motion is an important movement pattern during most wrist actions. The aim of this study was to investigate length changes in the wrist ligaments in different positions of the dart-throw motion in vivo.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The articulations between the various CARPAL BONES. This does not include the WRIST JOINT which consists of the articulations between the RADIUS; ULNA; and proximal CARPAL BONES.
The articulations extending from the WRIST distally to the FINGERS. These include the WRIST JOINT; CARPAL JOINTS; METACARPOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and FINGER JOINT.
A number of ligaments on either side of, and serving as a radius of movement of, a joint having a hingelike movement. They occur at the elbow, knee, wrist, metacarpo- and metatarsophalangeal, proximal interphalangeal, and distal interphalangeal joints of the hands and feet. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Entrapment of the MEDIAN NERVE in the carpal tunnel, which is formed by the flexor retinaculum and the CARPAL BONES. This syndrome may be associated with repetitive occupational trauma (CUMULATIVE TRAUMA DISORDERS); wrist injuries; AMYLOID NEUROPATHIES; rheumatoid arthritis (see ARTHRITIS, RHEUMATOID); ACROMEGALY; PREGNANCY; and other conditions. Symptoms include burning pain and paresthesias involving the ventral surface of the hand and fingers which may radiate proximally. Impairment of sensation in the distribution of the median nerve and thenar muscle atrophy may occur. (Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p45)
Disease involving the median nerve, from its origin at the BRACHIAL PLEXUS to its termination in the hand. Clinical features include weakness of wrist and finger flexion, forearm pronation, thenar abduction, and loss of sensation over the lateral palm, first three fingers, and radial half of the ring finger. Common sites of injury include the elbow, where the nerve passes through the two heads of the pronator teres muscle (pronator syndrome) and in the carpal tunnel (CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME).
Most cases of carpal tunnel syndrome are idiopathic. One condition associated with carpal tunnel syndrome is a lipofibromatous hamartoma. We describe a case of a lipofibromatous hamartoma presenting a...
Accurate clinical and radiographic examination of a wrist is required to diagnose injury. Knowledge of basic wrist anatomy is the key to ensuring a complete assessment. We tested junior doctors' basic...
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to demonstrate that ultrasonography may allow a precise assessment of the primary stabilizers of pisotriquetral joint (pisohamate, pisometacarpal, and ulnar pisotr...
A four-corner arthrodesis of the wrist is a salvage procedure for the treatment of specific wrist disorders, to achieve a movable, stable and pain free joint. However, a partial arthrodesis limits the...
