Carpus



Definition

The carpus includes the bones of the wrist - eight in total - which form a channel through which the tendons, ligaments, and arteries pass. It consists of the scaphoid, lunate, pyramidal, ancillary, trapezium, trapezoid, capitate, and the hamate. The carpus enables movements of the forearm in association with the metacarpus. In cases of falls, fractures are common, especially of the scaphoid bone, which takes a long time to heal.
