The origins and insertions of the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) were examined histologically in serially sectioned fresh-frozen cadaver wrists.

The floor of the extensor carpi ulnaris sheath also originated firmly from the dorsal side of the fovea of the ulna, through an arrangement of Sharpey's fibres. Loose… CONTINUE READING
