Finger sprains and dislocations are common hand injuries. A sprain happens when the tough tissue that supports a joint is stretched too far. This tissue, called a ligament, can be partially or completely torn. I
Despite surgical stabilization of complex elbow trauma, additional fixation to maintain joint congruity and stability may be required. Multiple biomechanical constructs include static external fixator (SEF), hinged external fixator (HEF), Internal Joint Stabilizer (IJS), or a hinged elbow orthosis (HEO). Optimal adjunct fixation to surgical reduction is yet to be determined.
The ECU tendon, or extensor carpi ulnaris, is one of the major wrist tendons. It is on the ulnar side of the wrist, the same side as the small finger. The tendon starts on the back of the forearm and crosses the wrist joint directly on the side.
Woodworking is a skill that requires precision and patience. Strong, functional hands are crucial to woodworking and it is important to protect them from potentially dangerous tools and accidents. Knowing the basic anatomy of the human hand and becoming familiar with symptoms for common conditions can be helpful when it comes to protecting yourself from injury during woodworking.
Fractures of the wrist and hand bones, or sprains with ligament injuries of the wrist are frequent traumas, which are easy to incur by falling while performing simple, everyday activities or while doing sports.
