What stabilizes the DRUJ, provides dual articular surfaces, seperates radioulnar from radiocarpal joint, and provides cushion to the ulnar side of the wrist? the TFCC
What are the primary articulations of the wrist? (there are 4) DRUJ, radiocarpal, midcarpal, and carpometacarpal
What kind of joint is the radiocarpal joint? How many degrees of freedom? condyloid, 2
What is the open packed position of the radiocarpal joint? slight flexion
What is the closed packed position of the radiocarpal joint? full extension & radial deviation

The midcarpal joint is said to have a _______ configuration rather than a convex on concave. functional
The midcarpal joint has __ degrees of freedom. 2
Motion at the midcarpal joint favors ______ over _______ extension over flexion
The axis of rotation for flexion/extension at the wrist occurs in a _________ axis between the lunate and capitate. coronal
The axis of rotation for rad/ulnar deviation at the wrist occurs in a _________ axis between the lunate and capitate. sagittal
Lichtman describes the carpus as a _______ system. ring
What is the idea behind the ring system? Bones within each row are tethered together by interosseous ligaments
Extension of the wrist is initiated at the _______ carpal row.(proximal/distal) distal
radial deviation & ulnar deviation are limited in extremes of wrist flex and ext due to what? ligamentous constraints
How much extension do you have at the wrist? 70-80 degrees
How much flexion do you have at the wrist? 85-90 degrees
How much radial deviation do you have at the wrist? 20-25 degrees

What are the contents of the carpal tunnel? FPL, FDP, FDS, Median nerve
What are the contents of Guyon’s canal? Ulnar artery and ulnar nerve
The arthrokinematic motion of the midcarpal row is in the ______direction as the radiocarpal jt. Opposite (i.e. in flexion, the radiocarpal jt glides dorsally and the midcarpal row glides anteriorly)
Axis of rotation for wrist flex/ext =? Coronal between lunate and capitate
