Carpal tunnel syndrome - Fracture or dislocation to lower radius or ulna or carpal or metacarpal bone Factor

Definitions

·    A fracture

·    Dislocation includes subluxation which is a partial dislocation

The radius is the bone on the outer side or thumb side of the forearm.  The lower end of the radius articulates (forms a joint) with the ulna and the carpus (wrist).

The ulna is the inner and larger bone of the forearm, on the side opposite that of the thumb.  The lower end of the ulna articulates with the radius and the bones of the carpus.

The carpus (wrist) comprises 8 bones.  These carpal bones are:

·   Capitate

·   Scaphoid (navicular)

·   Hamate

·   Trapezium

·   Lunate

·   Trapezoid

·   Pisiform

·   Triquetrum

The 5 metacarpal bones in the hand extend from the carpus (wrist) to the phalanges (fingers).
