  FORELIMB STANCE AND STEP CYCLE IN CHASMOSAURUS IRVINENSIS (Dinosauria: Neoceratopsia) by Stefan Thompson and Robert ...
The splaying of the digits occurs because the metacarpus is strongly arched, the curvature of which closely matches the arc described by the distal end of the epipodium.
When the epipodium is articulated with the metacarpus, and the humerus to the glenoid, the long axis of the humerus, viewed laterally, forms an angle of 37 degrees to the horizontal and, viewed anteriorly, is everted 27 degrees from the parasagittal plane.
In order to maintain the distal end of the ulna in close enough proximity to the metacarpus, the humerus was rotated about its long axis, resulting in a more ventrally directed deltopectoral crest and more laterally facing external surface of its proximal expansion (Figure 7.3).

Many people assign it to the metacarpus because it is located in virtually the same row as the metacarpal bones and is not exposed, as are the first internodes [phalanges proximales] (D in figs.
Moreover, they include the first bone of the thumb with the metacarpus perhaps because the second bone [phalanx proximalis] of the thumb is articulated with the first in nearly the same way (C, D in fig.
In the middle of their course along the length of the metacarpus, since the bones are much thinner than their epiphyses, they are separated from each other and stand apart by a noticeable interval (S in figs.

 Concentration of gentamicin in distal limb synovial structures and bones using local antibiotic perfusion of the distal ...
Standardized bone samples were harvested immediately after euthanasia from the dorsodistal aspect of the metacarpus (DM), the dorsoproximal aspect of the proximal (PP), middle (MP) and distal (DP) phalanges, and proximal (PSB) and distal (DSB) sesamoid bones from the treated and control limbs.
The results of this study suggest that standing intraosseous perfusion of 2.2 mg/kg of gentamicin may be a particularly useful for the treatment of any infected synovial structures of the distal limb and osteomyelitis of the distal phalanx and navicular bone.
DM: dorsodistal aspect of the metacarpus, PP: dorsoproximal aspect of the proximal phalanx, MP: dorsoproximal aspect of the middle phalanx, DP: dorsoproximal aspect of the distal phalanges, PSB: proximal sesamoid bone, DSB: distal sesamoid bone.

The metacarpus is the intermediate part of the hand skeleton that is located between the fingers distal ly and the carpus which forms the connection to the forearm.
It consists of five cylindrical bone s which are numbered from the radial to the ulnar side ( ossa metacarpalia I-V); each consists of a body and two extremities.
The lateral part of this surface serves for the attachment of the fourth Interosseus dorsalis; the medial part is smooth, triangular, and covered by the Extensor tendons of the little finger.

Accelerometers were mounted on the hoof and on the third metacarpus above the leg support.
Two dependent variables were analyzed at both the hoof and third metacarpus: peak axial deceleration was measured in g's, and asymptotic frequency, above which contributions to total power in the accelerometer signal were negligible, was measured in Hertz.
Therefore, differences between leg support conditions were evaluated at the third metacarpus for each variable at the trot and gallop.
