Test your knowledge: anatomy of the wrist
There is something about the wrist:
A. The tendon m. flexor pollicis longus is lying outside the capral Tunnel.
B. The Pronator quadratus muscle is innervated by a nerve with it’s origin at C8-Th1 (a branche of the median nerve).
C. Scaphoid-Lunate instability can be reduced by a reconstruction of the ulnar collateral ligament, named ‘Brunelli surgery’.
D. The Triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) is formed by the triangular fibrocartilage discus (TFC), the radioulnar ligaments (RUL’s) and the ulnocarpal ligaments (UCL’s)
E. During radial deviation of the wrist the Scaphoid bone is sliding to ventral/palmair
Which of these sentences are true and which are false?
A. False, it is lying inside the carpal tunnel together with the 8 tendons of the flexor digitorum superficialis and profundus.
C. False, the surgery name is right (Brunelli), but the ligament which is reconstructed is the Scapulo-Lunate ligament.
