TERMINOLOGY

  • Abbreviations

    • Abductor digiti minimi (ADM)
    • Abductor pollicis brevis (APB)
    • Carpometacarpal (CMC)
    • Distal interphalangeal (joint) (DIP)
    • Dorsal palmar arch (DPA)
    • Extensor digitorum communis (EDC)
    • Extensor pollicis longus (EPL)
    • Extension, extensor (ext.)
    • Flexor digiti minimi (FDM)
    • Flexor digitorum profundus (FDP)
    • Flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS)
    • Flexion, flexor (flex.)
    • Flexor pollicis brevis (FPB)
    • Flexor pollicis longus (FPL)
    • Interosseus membrane (IOM)
    • Interphalangeal (joint) (IP)
    • Metacarpal (MC)
    • Metacarpophalangeal (joint) (MCP)
    • Opponens digiti minimi (ODM)
    • Opponens pollicis (OP)
    • Phalanx (phal.)
    • Proximal interphalangeal (joint) (PIP)
    • Retinaculum, retinacular (retinac)
    • Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)
    • Superficial palmar arch (SPA)
    • Volar plate (VP)
  • Definitions

    • For this text, hand will be defined as beginning at carpometacarpal joint
    • In anatomic position, hand is in supination
    • Radial: Toward radius and synonymous with lateral(ly)
    • Ulnar: Toward ulna and synonymous with medial(ly)
    • Mesial: Toward midline of structure
      • In the hand, for example, 3rd digit is more mesial than 2nd and 4th digits, which are more mesial than 1st and 5th digits
    • Opposition: Motion bringing thumb toward other digits; critical motion for grasping objects
