    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Interphalangeal articulations of hand) The interphalangeal joints of the hand are the hinge joints between the phalanges of the fingers that provide flexion towards the palm of the hand. There are two sets in each finger (except in the thumb, which has only one joint):

    In the wrist there is the radiocarpal joint between the radius and carpus. Between the carpal bones are the intercarpal articulations and the midcarpal joint. The carpometacarpal joint connects the carpal bones to the metacarpus or metacarpal bones which are joined at the intermetacarpal articulations.

    This should be uncontroversial, unless the phrase "interphalangeal articulations of hand" is known to be the accepted term. I don't know much about anatomical terminology. :) Same thing goes for Interphalangeal articulations of foot. — Quuxplusone 17:13, 21 May 2009 (UTC) Survey

    The PIP joint ex­hibits great lat­eral sta­bil­ity. Its trans­verse di­am­e­ter is greater than its an­tero-pos­te­rior di­am­e­ter and its thick col­lat­eral lig­a­ments are tight in all po­si­tions dur­ing flex­ion, con­trary to those in the metacar­popha­langeal joint.

    The only move­ments per­mit­ted in the in­ter­pha­langeal joints are flex­ion and ex­ten­sion. 1. Flexion is more extensive, about 100°, in the PIP joints and slightly more restricted, about 80°, in the DIP joints. 2. Extension is limited by the volar and collateral ligaments. The mus­cles gen­er­at­ing these move­ments are: The rel­a­tive length of the digit varies dur­ing mo­tion of the IP joints. The length of the pal­mar as­pect de­creases dur­ing flex­ion while the dor­sal as­pect in­creases by about 24 mm. The use­ful range of mo­tion of the PIP joint is 30–70°, in­creas­ing from the index fin­ger to the lit­tle fin­ger. Dur­ing max­i­mum flex­ion the base of the mid­dle pha­lanx is firmly pressed into the retro­condy­lar re­cess of the prox­i­mal pha­lanx, which pro­vides max­i­mum sta­bil­ity to the joint. The sta­bil­ity of the PIP joint is de­pen­dent of the ten­dons pass­ing around it.

    Rheuma­toid arthri­tis gen­er­ally spares the dis­tal in­ter­pha­langeal joints. There­fore, arthri­tis of the dis­tal in­ter­pha­langeal joints strongly sug­gests the pres­ence of os­teoarthri­tis or pso­ri­atic arthri­tis.
