Also, Frykman and Johansson (51) reported UCL reconstruction with a slip of the abductor pollicis longus (APL), which they passed through a transverse metacarpal tunnel from radial to ulnar and secured to the base of the proximal phalanx ulnarly.
The Radial Loop--Pattern runs in the direction of ulna and the triradius and the central part are located ulnarly. Topologically is classified as the presence of an ulnar component (value 2) and the absence of radial (value 0) and is traditionally labelled by R.
Thereby, suggests an incision ulnar to the ring finger axial line curving to the ulnarly when crossing the WFC (Taleisnik).
Intraoperatively, an incision was made over the dorsal aspect of the thumb metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint, coursed along the radial insertion of the thenar muscles, curving ulnarly along the distal wrist crease, and extending longitudinally over the flexor carpi radialis (FCR) and palmaris longus (PL) tendon.
The mechanism of injury is an excessive loading force applied to a dorsiflexed and ulnarly deviated wrist6.
The muscle belly was then retracted ulnarly to expose the pronator quadratus which was vestigial and predominantly tendinous.
Typing postures require ulnar deviation of approximately 15[degree] to 19[degree] (Serina et al., 1999), thus one would expect greater activity in the extensor carpi ulnaris, which acts to extend and ulnarly deviate the wrist.
The extensor digitorum communis (EDC) tendons are retracted ulnarly and the extensor carpi radialis brevis muscle (ECRB), extensor carpi radialis muscle (ECRL), and EPL are retracted radially exposing the underlying joint capsule.
The radial artery is carefully retracted radially, while the tendons of the FCR and FPL are retracted ulnarly. The pronator quadratus is divided at its most radial aspect, leaving a small cuff of muscle for later reattachment.
Also consistent with our earlier work is the observation that the left wrist was slightly more ulnarly deviated than the right wrist (14.6[degrees] vs.
This is a thick and fibrous band that attaches to the scaphoid tuberosity and trapezium radially, and the pisiform and hook of the hamate ulnarly. Contents of the carpal tunnel include the nine flexor tendons and the median nerve.
