The carpometacarpal joints with the exception of the carpometacarpal joint of the thumb, which is a saddle joint, are type of plane synovial joints. Functionally as well as medically, the most important joint is the first carpometacarpal joint. The distal side of the carpals of distal row articulates with the base of metacarpals. There are [...]

Coracoacromial Ligament

By | 2018-02-01T08:29:46+00:00 September 22nd, 2017|Anatomy, Joints, Upper Limb|

Coracoacromial ligament guards the superior aspect of the joint and develops within coracoid and acromion processes. The ligament is often illustrated as containing two marginal bands as well as a thinner intervening part, the two bands being connected specifically towards the apex along with the base of the coracoid process, and also merging at the [...]

Coracohumeral ligament is a strong strap of fibrous tissue that enters from the base of the coracoid process to the anterior element of the greater tubercle of the humerus. Origin of Coracohumeral Ligament Coracohumeral ligament enters obliquely downwards and laterally to the front of the greater tubercle of the humerus, where the coracohumeral [...]

It is rectangular in shape and has roughly the shapes and size of a postage stamp.Like a postage stamp, it presents two surfaces and four borders.The flexor retinaculum is a robust fibrous band created by the thickening of deep fascia in front of the carpus (anatomical wrist). Attachment The flexor retinaculum of the [...]

Coracoclavicular Ligament

By | 2018-02-01T09:30:40+00:00 August 28th, 2017|Anatomy, Joints, Upper Limb|

The coracoclavicular ligament is in fact two ligaments, the trapezoid and the conoid. The trapezoid and the conoid ligaments have identical dimensional, viscoelastic behavioral and structural characteristics, regardless of their morphologic differences. It plays an important function in sustaining the integrity of the joint however lies little far from the joint itself. Structure [...]

By | 2018-02-01T09:31:29+00:00 July 24th, 2017|Anatomy, Joints, Upper Limb|

Type Acromioclavicular Joint lies in the middle of the lateral end of the clavicle and acromion process of the scapula. It is a normal kind of synovial joint. Around 2.5 cm medial to the point of the shoulder lies the acromioclavicular joint. Articular Surfaces These are small facets found on the lateral end of clavicle [...]

Sternoclavicular Joint

By | 2018-02-01T09:32:39+00:00 July 24th, 2017|Anatomy, Joints, Upper Limb|

Type The Sternoclavicular Joint is a saddle kind of the synovial joint. Articular Surfaces The circular sternal end of clavicle and the hollow socket articulates with each other at the nearby part of the 1st costal cartilage and at the superolateral angle of the manubrium sterni. The medial end of clavicle improperly fits [...]

Shoulder Joint (Glenohumeral Joint)

By | 2018-02-01T09:33:17+00:00 July 24th, 2017|Anatomy, Joints, Upper Limb|

The Glenohumeral Joint is a synovial ball and socket articulation between the head of the humerus and the glenoid cavity of the scapula. It's multiaxial with a broad range of movements provided in the cost of skeletal stability. Joint stability is provided, instead, by the rotator cuff muscles, the long head of the biceps brachii [...]

Radio-Ulnar Joints

By | 2018-02-01T09:33:27+00:00 July 24th, 2017|Anatomy, Joints, Upper Limb|

The Superior radio-ulnar joint and the Inferior radio-ulnar joint are the two joints formed between the radio and ulna. The Superior radio-ulnar joint is formed at the upper end, while the Inferior radio-ulnar joint is formed at the lower end of radius and ulna. Both these Radio-Ulnar Joints are synovial joints of pivot variety. Both [...]
