Transcript

  • 1. PALMAR SPACES
  • 2. The PALM20 Intrinsic muscles9 Flexor tendonsUlnar & Median Nerves.Palmar arterial archesWrapped in Fascial layers
  • 3. FOUR COMPARTMENTSTHENARHYPOTHENARINTERMEDIATEADDUCTOR
  • 4. THENAR• Abductor Pollicis Brevis• Flexor Pollicis Brevis• Opponens PollicisHYPOTHENAR• Abductor Digiti Minimi• Flexor Digiti Minimi• Opponens Digiti Minimi
  • 5. INTERMEDIATE• Flexor tendons covered by Synovial sheaths• lumbricals• Palmar arterial arches• Branches of Median and Ulnar nervesADDUCTOR• Adductor Pollicis
  • 6. • No well defined spaces inside the fascialcompartments• Become apparent when there is collectionof pus• Mid palmar septum/Intermediate palmarseptum divide intermediate comp intoThenar & Mid palmar spaces

  • 9. Palmar Spaces MidPalmar space Thenar space Hypothenar space Radial Bursa Ulnar bursa Interdigital Web spaces Pulp spaces Forearm space of Parona Dorsal Sub aponeurotic space
  • 10. Midpalmar space• Anterior – Palmar aponeurosis,superficial palmar arch,flexor tendons of medial 3 digits covered in ulnarbursa and medial 3 lumbricals• Posterior - Fascia covering 3rd& 4thinterossei andmetacarpal bones• Medial – Medial Palmar septum• Lateral - Midpalmar septum• Proximal – distal margin of flexor retinaculum• Distal - medial 2 web spaces thru lumbrical canals
  • 11. Thenar Space• Anterior - Palmar aponeurosis,superficial palmar arch,flexor tendon of index finger covered withsynovial sheath, tendon of FPL• Posterior – fascia covering adductor pollicis• Lateral - Lateral palmar septum• Medial MidPalmar septum.• Proximal – distal margin of flexor retinaculum• Distal - 1stweb space thru lumbrical canal
  • 12. Hypothenar Space• Posterior – 5thMetacarpal• Lateral – Hypothenar septum• Medial & Ant– Hypothenar Muscles
  • 13. •
  • 14. Radial Bursa• Synovial sheath surroundingFlexor Pollicis Longus tendon• Extends from forearm( 2 cm prox to Flexorretinaculum) to base of terminal phalanx ofthumb
  • 15. Ulnar Bursa• Common synovial sheath surroundingtendons of Flexor digitorum superficialisand profundus• Extends from forearm( 2 cm prox to Flexorretinaculum) to mid palm level where itends as cul-de-sac .• Continuous with digital sheath aroundflexor tendons of little finger
  • 16. Web Spaces• 4 Subcutaneous spaces• From its free margin – extends to level ofMCP joint.• CONTENTS - S/C fatSuperficial transverse metacarpal ligament,interosseous and lumbrical tendons,digital nerves and vessels.
  • 17. • Inflammation of synovial sheath• Little finger – infects Ulnar bursa• Thumb – infects Radial bursa• Horse Shoe abscess• Can extend to MidPalmar and Thenarspaces (Pus tanks)• Through lumbricals to Web spaces (Pustaps)
  • 18. Flexor TenosynovitisKanavel’s Cardinal SignsKanavel’s Cardinal Signs• finger in slight flexionfinger in slight flexion• fusiform swellingfusiform swelling• pain with extension.pain with extension.• tenderness alongtenderness alongtendon sheathtendon sheath
  • 19. Thenar space inf• Swelling of thenar area• Thumb abducted & extended• Index finger flexed.Midpalmar space inf• Dorsal swelling- inflated rubber glove• Inability to move long & ring fingers- pain
  • 20. Web space inf• Collar button abscess due to hour glassconfiguration• Begins beneath palmar callus – in labourers• Incisions – 1 dorsal and 1 palmar.• Web - not incised
  • 21. Pulp Space• Subcutaneous space between distalphalanx and skin of terminal digit.• Proximally – closed anteriorly by fusion offibrous flexor sheath to skin of digit at distalcrease• Posteriorly fusion of deep fascia toperiosteum of terminal phalanx.
  • 22. Contents• Subcutaneous fatty tissue• Loculated by tough fibrous septa -Extending from skin to phalanx.• Sensory nerves• Digital artery• ABSCESS – Whitlow/Felon• Complication - AVN of distal 4/5thofphalanx (thrombosis of diaphyseal br ofdigital artery
  • 23. Felon
  • 24. FOREARM SPACE OF PARONA• Located in forearm• Continuous with palmar space throughflexor tendons through carpal tunnel• Anterior boundary - flexor tendonscovered with tendon sheath• Posterior boundary - Pronator quadratus• Lateral – FPL• Medial - FCU• Infections - Incision either side of lower 3rdof forearm
  • 25. Management of InfectionIncise,Incise,Culture,Culture,Irrigate,Irrigate,Antibiotics,Antibiotics,Soaks,Soaks,ROM,ROM,Resting SplintResting Splint
