Anatomy and physiology of the fingertip

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The anatomy of the fingertip is complex as it is such a specialized anatomical area. The skeletal, vascular, nervous, soft tissue, and cutaneous anatomies are discussed, including the highly developed nail complex. The basis for understanding of function and pathology of the fingertip is dependent upon a basic understanding of its anatomy and physiology.
