Palm layer 6



We have now arrived at the layer of the deep flexor tendons.  There is only one deep long flexors and that is the tendons of the flexor digitorum profundus. To recap we have removed flexor digitorum superficialis tendons and the common synovial flexor sheaths. We can now see the deep tendons clearly, The carpal tunnel and the flexor digiti minimi which is the last muscle of the hypothenar eminence. The deep tendon layer consist of deep long flexors, carpal tunnel, palmar ligaments of metacarpophalangeal joints, adductor pollicis, palmar metacarpal arteries and the deep branch of ulnar nerve and artery.  In sum, we have exposed the fibrous flexor sheath and the carpal tunnel.
