Ligaments of the wrist and hand: Dorsal view (English)

The interosseous intercarpal ligaments are visible. These ligaments lie within the joint capsule and provide stability to the intercarpal joints. The interosseous intercarpal ligaments include the scapholunate, lunotriquetral, trapeziotrapezoidal, trapezoideocapitate and the capitohamate interosseous ligaments.Located between the dorsal and palmar metacarpal ligaments are the interosseous metacarpal ligaments. These ligaments stretch between adjacent metacarpal bones aiding in stabilizing movement.The dorsal carpometacarpal ligaments of metacarpals 2-4 are composed of two ligaments each of which attach to the base of the metacarpals. Similar to its palmar counterpart, the 5th metacarpal has only one dorsal carpometacarpal ligament.
