Closed, easily reduced fractures of the metacarpus
are managed with coaptation using a reinforced splint (curved-edge splint) and figure-of-8 bandage, especially if the minor metacarpal bone is intact or the fracture is too proximal for fixation hardware.
described a positive correlation between the grip strength and the circumference of the metacarpus
, wrist, and upper arm .
In addition, compared with the proximal dorsum of the metacarpus
, there is more abundant soft tissue coverage around the lateral side of the metacarpal neck and fixation of both the fourth and the fifth metacarpal fractures can be undertaken with only one incision.
Radical amputations of the upper limbs at the level of the forearm, the wrist and the metacarpus
cause rupture of all the anatomical structures, i.e.
Comparing the forelimbs of CCB-1 with those of Dollo's goniopholidid, one of the most complete goniopholidid skeletons in existence, differences in robustness can also be observed; the carpus, metacarpus
and phalanges of CCB-1 are much shorter and more robust than in Dollo's goniopholidid.
It is probable that the skeletal development in distal elements of quail wing happens around the end of the first week with special mention of development in metacarpus
, and digits area.
is essential for the anatomical structure of the hand and for the motion of the fingers.
Length of head, toe, femur, tibia, metacarpus
, and mouth opening were highest loading variables on each component, respectively.

Ultrasonographic evaluation of the metacarpus

Neck length 149-169 [micro]m, 23% to 26% of body; cylindrical procorpus, metacarpus
swollen; basal bulb oval with transverse valves.
Thirty six reflective markers were attached to the subject's skin on the following anatomical landmarks: sterno-clavicular joint, xiphoid process, 7th cervical vertebra, 10th thoracic vertebra, and for both hemi-bodies, occipital and frontal bones, gleno-humeral joint, lateral humeral epicondyle, ulnar styloid process, radial styloid process, 3rd process of the 3rd metacarpus
, anterior superior iliac spine, posterior superior iliac spine, lateral tibia, lateral malleolus, heel, head of the 2nd metatarsus.
