Ulnar Collateral Ligament of Wrist Joint

The ulnar collateral ligament (internal lateral ligament, ulnar carpal collateral ligament) is a rounded cord, attached above to the end of the styloid process of the ulna, and dividing below into two fasciculi, one of which is attached to the medial side of the triquetral bone, the other to the pisiform and flexor retinaculum.

Famous quotes containing the words joint and/or wrist:

    Your letter of excuses has arrived. I receive the letter but do not admit the excuses except in courtesy, as when a man treads on your toes and begs your pardon—the pardon is granted, but the joint aches, especially if there is a corn upon it.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    you show her the two hands
    that grip each other fiercely,
    one being mine, one being yours.
    Torn right off at the wrist bone
    when you started in your
    impossible going, gone.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
