He said they did a follow-up scan earlier this week, which showed good healing of the sesamoid bone
, but they're going to wait two weeks before the next scan.
In the selected CT images with WW = 2350 HU, WL = 1180 HU settings and corresponding sections of the plastinated specimen; the metacarpal bone III and its sagittal ridge, the proximal sesamoid bones
, proximal phalanx, middle phalanx, distal phalanx, distal sesamoid bone
, branches of the suspensory ligament, collateral ligament, intersesamoidean ligament, deep digital flexor tendon, superficial digital flexor tendon, common and long digital extensor tendons were well determined.
WILLOUGHBY COURT, winner of the 2017 Neptune Management Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham, has been put down following surgery after an infection of the sesamoid bone
Patella is the largest sesamoid bone
in the human body (sesamoid bone
refers to any bone that's embedded inside a muscle or a tendon).
 It is the largest sesamoid bone
 and its fracture accounts for approximately 1% of all fractures in adults.
The patella is the largest sesamoid bone
which ossifies from one center in 77% and from two or three centers in 23% of children. Most of these ossification centers mutually fuse, but approximately 2% of them remain dissociated. Although bipartite patella is usually asymptomatic, it can become painful following overuse or injury.
The most prevalent fractures were the radius fractures (15.6%) and the least common were the sesamoid bone
Masaki, "An anatomical study of the interphalangeal sesamoid bone
of the hallux," Nihon Seikeigeka Gakkai Zasshi, vol.
The patella, which is the largest sesamoid bone
in our body, develops from a single ossification center in 77% of children, whereas in 23% of children this bone develops from 2 or 3 ossification centers.
Technically, it is a ligament (connecting bone to bone), but it has historically been referred to as a tendon because the patella is a sesamoid bone
. A bonepatellar tendon-bone (BTB) graft is the strongest of all biological substitutes; it achieves strong initial graft fixation using interference screws, allows bone-bone direct healing and offers rapid bony integration at the fixation points of the reconstruction [3,4].
The os peroneum is a round or oval-shaped juxta-articular sesamoid bone
that lies within the confines of the peroneus longus tendon.
The 7-2 second favourite for next month's Grade 1, has been ruled out for the season by Willie Mullins after suffering a chip to his sesamoid bone
