 DR V2.3: PAINFUL LEFT INDEX FINGER, AN OCCUPATIONAL HAZARD FOR BASSOONISTS   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Chester W. White, Jr., A.M., M.D. The left index finger is extremely important to performance on the bassoon, being required simultaneously to provide partial support for the instrument in the left hand while achieving fine movement to produce the rather variable halfhole which is essential to the clarity, pitch, and range of certain notes.
The integrity of motor and sensory functions of this finger, which like the entire radial (thumb) side of the palm, the middle finger and part of the ring finger is served by branches of the median nerve of the arm, is fundamental to all hand skills.
Sensation to the index finger is supplied by two small branches of the median nerve which enters the palm near its center at the wrist, promptly dividing into lesser radicles to each side of the thumb, index and middle finger and to the nearer side of the ring finger.

 Fracture Types
The index finger will be held fully extended as much in the way as possible, thus enhancing the chances of injury both to itself and to the remainder of the hand.
The coordinate ability to flex the index finger thus affected is either lost or is so dominated by the remaining voluntary function of extension that the patient must relearn to flex the involved member.
Amputation of the index finger proximal to the distal interphalangeal joint results in almost total precision loss which is, in turn, equivalent to functional loss of the digit since it is now only slightly longer than the thumb.

 Finger It Out
In women, the index finger (2D, second digit) is almost the same length as the ring finger, the fourth digit (4D), although it may be slightly longer or shorter; in men, the index finger is more often shorter than the fourth.
They worked out the ratio of the length of the index finger to the length of the ring finger for each child, and compared it with those of 34 of the children's healthy siblings, 88 of their fathers, 88 of their mothers, and a number of unrelated controls that were matched for sex and age.
In men, the 2nd finger is shorter than the 4th finger, while in women this difference is not evident, note Fleur R Cattrall from Monash University in Melbourne, Victoria, and her colleagues.

 Homosexuality and finger length
Here we examine the androgen-sensitive pattern of finger lengths1, and find evidence that homosexual women are exposed to more prenatal androgen than heterosexual women are; also, men with more than one older brother, who are more likely than first-born males to be homosexual in adulthood, are exposed to more prenatal androgen than eldest sons.
In women, the index finger (2D, second digit) is almost the same length as the fourth digit (4D), although it may be slightly longer or shorter; in men, the index finger is more often shorter than the fourth.
Finger measures indicate that men with more elder brothers, including those men who develop a homosexual orientation, might be exposed to greater than normal levels of prenatal androgen.

 How to put your finger on the meaning of finger length   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In women, the index finger (the second digit, or "2D") is usually about the same length as the ring finger (the fourth digit, or "4D").
With the index finger 96 percent of the length of the ring finger, their ratio is 0.96.
Studies showed that men with a low ratio (a ring finger longer than their index finger) are more fertile, aggressive and assertive, and have greater musical and sports ability.

 Gripping device - Patent 5770297
The flexible strip has a width approximating the width of a user's index finger or thumb and is sized in length to extend from a portion of a user's thumb, across the juncture between the user's thumb and a user's index finger and to extend along a portion of user's thumb.
The flexible strip 1 should cover at least a portion of the index finger, the juncture and a portion of the thumb and could be sized to extend from the index finger tip all the way to the thumb tip, if desired.
Prior to use, the gripping device 10 is fitted onto a user's hand by slipping the index finger of a user through the opening 13 formed by one band 3 with the thumb being inserted in the opening 13 formed by the other band 3.

 Academics find that finger of destiny points their way
The length of fingers is genetically linked to the sex hormones, and a person with an index finger shorter than the ring finger will have had more testosterone while in the womb, and a person with an index finger longer than the ring finger will have had more estrogen.
A survey of the finger lengths of over 100 male and female academics at the University by senior Psychology lecturer Dr Mark Brosnan has found that those men teaching hard science like mathematics and physics tend to have index fingers as long as their ring fingers, a marker for unusually high estrogen levels for males.
It also found the reverse: those male academics with longer ring fingers than index fingers — the usual male pattern — tended not to be in science but in social science subjects such as psychology and education.

 Pointing the Finger at Androgen as a Cause of Homosexuality
Previous studies have shown that, in general, a woman's index finger, or second finger (2D), is almost the same length as her ring finger, or fourth finger (4D), while a man's index finger is more often shorter than his ring finger.
The Breedlove survey confirmed that women's index and ring fingers were closer to equal size, meaning that their ratio is closer to one.
Scientists know that the ratio of the index finger to the ring finger is different in men and women, and is probably indicative of the level of exposure to the male hormone androgen in the womb.

 Broken Finger
Understanding the basic anatomy of the hand and fingers is very useful in understanding different types of finger injuries, broken fingers, and how some treatments differ from others.
Fingers are constructed of ligaments (strong supportive tissue connecting bone to bone), tendons (attachment tissue from muscle to bone), and 3 bones, called phalanges.
Fingers move by the pull of muscles, located in the forearm, on the tendons.

 Can Finger Length Predict Who Is Aggressive?
The ratio of the length of the index finger to the ring finger is smaller for men than for women.
Although researchers say finger length only accounts for a small portion of the differences in men's aggressive behaviors, they explain that the results are consistent with previous studies that have linked men's finger length to the amount of testosterone a fetus is exposed to in the womb.
The ratio of the index to the ring finger in men is smaller, meaning more similar in length, while women tend to have a bigger length difference between the two fingers.

 A man's index finger length relative to ring finger length can predict how physically aggressive that man might be   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Peter Hurd a psychologist at the University of Alberta, and his graduate student Allison Bailey, have found that a man's index finger length relative to ring finger length can predict how physically aggressive that man might be.
The shorter the index finger relative to the ring finger, the higher the amount of prenatal testosterone, and--as Hurd and Bailey have now shown--the more likely he will be physically aggressive throughout his life.
Hurd is conducting ongoing research on hockey players' finger lengths and cross referencing the results with each player's penalty minutes as well as a similar study showing that men with more feminine finger ratios are more prone to depression; a paper on this will be published later this year in Personality and Individual Differences.

A finger dislocation is a joint injury in which the finger bones move apart or sideways so the ends of the bones are no longer aligned normally.
Finger dislocations usually happen when the finger is bent backward beyond its normal limit of motion.
When a finger bone is pulled away from connected tendons, it is common for a fragment of bone to separate from the main bone and stay with the tendon, a condition known as an avulsion fracture.
