Wrist and Hand - a Review

  1. 1. MINETTE RICO FERNANDEZ, PTRP WRIST and HAND
  2. 2. Wrist and Hand  The hand and the wrist are the most active and the most intricate parts of the upper extremity. (Magee, David; Orthopedic Physical Assessment 4th Ed)  Vulnerable to injury and does not respond well to serious trauma. (Magee, David; Orthopedic Physical Assessment 4th Ed)  In addition to being an expressive organ of communication, the hand has a protective role and acts as both a motor and a sensory organ, providing information such as temperature, thickness, texture, depth, and shape as well as the motion of an object. (Magee, David; Orthopedic Physical Assessment 4th Ed)
  3. 3. Topic contents:  Bones  Joints  Muscles  Common Hand Conditions  Assessment / Special Tests  Mini Quiz
  4. 4. Bones of the Wrist and Hand  Styloid process of ulna & radius  8 carpal bones Proximal row: scaphoid, lunate, triquetrum, pisiform Distal row: trapezium, trapezoid, capitate, hamate  5 metacarpals  14 phalanges
  5. 5. The Carpals Some Lawyers Tender Proposals That They Cannot Handle
  6. 6. The Carpal Bones  Navicular/ Scaphoid - most frequently fractured carpal bone  Lunate – most frequently dislocated carpal bone  Pisiform – smallest; lies on diff plane; last to ossify  Capitate – largest carpal bone, center of wrist, first to ossify  Hamate – with hook like process
  7. 7. How do you remember that the trapezium comes before the trapezoid? TRAPEZIUM Greater Multangular  (TrapeZOOM) The trapeziUM supports the thUMb TRAPEZOID Lesser Multangular The trapezoid’s on the inZOID
  8. 8. Joints of the Wrist and Hand Carpus/Wrist complex • Distal Radioulnar Joint (magee) • Radiocarpal joints (norkin) • Midcarpal joints • Intercarpal Joint • Carpometacarpal jts • Intermetacarpal jts.  Fingers & thumb • Metacarpophalangeal • Interphalangeal
  9. 9. Joints of the Wrist and Hand  Distal Radioulnar Joint • uniaxial pivot • one degree of freedom. • RP – 10 degrees supination • CP – 5 degrees supination • CPP – pain at extremes of rotation  Radiocarpal Joint • biaxial ellipsoid joint (2 degrees Freedom of Movement) • Scaphoid and lunate articulates with radius • Lunate and triquetrum articulates with triangular cartilaginous disc (triangular fibrocartilage complex- TFCC) • RP – neutral with slight ulnar deviation • CP – extension • CPP – flexion and extension equally limited
  10. 10. Joints of the Wrist and Hand  Midcarpal Joint • Articulation between proximal and distal carpal rows • Compound sellar joint; Two degrees of freedom • RP – neutral or slight flexion with ulnar deviation • CP – extension with ulnar deviation • CPP – flexion and extension equally limited  Intercarpal Joints • The joints between individual bones of proximal carpal row and joints between individual bones of distal carpal row. • RP – neutral or slight flexion • CP – extension • CPP – no capsular pattern
  11. 11. Joints of the Wrist and Hand  Carpometacarpal Joints (CMC) • 1st CMC – sellar with 3 degrees freedom of movement • 2nd-5th – plane joints (allow only gliding movements; 2nd and 3rd relatively immobile)  RP – Thumb, midway between abduction and adduction, and midway between flexion and extension  Fingers, midway between flexion and extension  CP – Thumb, full opposition; Fingers, full flexion  CPP – Thumb, abduction, then extension  Fingers, equal limitation in all directions
  12. 12. Joints of the Wrist and Hand  Intermetacarpal Joints • have only a small amount of gliding movement between them and do not include the thumb articulation. They are bound together by palmar, dorsal, and interosseous ligaments  Metacarpal Joints • Condyloid joints with 2 degrees of freedom • RP - slight flexion • CP – full opposition ; fingers full flexion • CPP – flexion then extension
  13. 13. Joints of the Wrist and Hand  Interphalangeal Joints • Uniaxial hinge joint with 1 degree of freedom • RP - slight flexion • CP – full extension • CPP – flexion then extension

  19. 19. Common Wrist and Hand Conditions Dupuytren’s Contracture  Due to the contracture of the palmar fascia  Common among men  Usually seen in the 50- to 70- age group  Fixed flexion deformity of the MCP & PIP joints  Usually seen in the ring or little finger
  20. 20. Common Wrist and Hand Conditions Swan-Neck Deformity  Result of contracture of the intrinsic muscles  Often seen after trauma or in patients with RA  Flexion of the MCP & DIP joints & extension of the PIP joint
  21. 21. Common Wrist and Hand Conditions Boutonniere Deformity  Result of the rupture of the central tendinous slip of the extensor hood  Most common after trauma or in RA  Extension of the MCP & DIP joints & flexion of the PIP joint
  22. 22. Common Wrist and Hand Conditions Mallet Finger  Result of the rupture or avulsion of the extensor tendon where it inserts in the distal phalanx of the finger  Distal phalanx rests in a flexed position
  23. 23. Common Wrist and Hand Conditions Jersey Finger  Caused by rupture of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon  Common among football players  Occurs most often in the ring finger  Inability to flex the affected DIP joint which becomes apparent when the patient is asked to make a fist  Positive sweater finger sign
  24. 24. Common Wrist and Hand Conditions Ulnar Drift  Due to weakening of the capsuloligamentous structures of the MCP joints & the accompanying bowstring effect if the extensor communis tendons  Commonly seen in patients with RA  Ulnar deviation of the digits
  25. 25. Common Wrist and Hand Conditions Claw Fingers  Intrinsic minus hand  Loss of intrinsic muscle action & the overaction of the extrinsic muscles on the proximal phalanx of the fingers  Combined median & ulnar nerve palsy  MCP joints are hyperextended & the PIP & DIP joints are flexed
  26. 26. Common Wrist and Hand Conditions Ape Hand Deformity  Median nerve palsy  Wasting of the thenar eminence of the hand  Inability to oppose or flex the thumb

  40. 40. 7. WRINKLE / SHRIVEL TEST PROCEDURE - Pt FINGER PLACE IN WARM WATER FOR 5 TO 20 MINS. POSITIVE - NO WRINKLING OF PULP INDICATIVE - DENERVATION
  41. 41. Allen Test for Radial & Ulnar Nerve Patency Tests for … Patency of the radial & ulnar arteries Position Sitting with forearm free to move, elbow bent with fingers pointing up toward the ceiling. Stimulus Compress the radial & ulnar arteries at the wrist, one thumb on the ulnar artery & the other on the radial artery. Pt. should open & close fist quickly. PT then releases the pressure on the one artery & observes the filling pattern of the vessels in the palm. Do the same for the other artery. (+) Response Blanching remains in the palm after pressure is released from the artery. Can also be used to test individual fingers.
