A Study of Absence of Palmaris Longus Tendon and its Association with other Anatomical Anomalies - A Central Indian Population Study

Dr. Abhilasha Wahane, Dr. Charulata Satpute

Palmaris Longus is considered to be a dispensible tendon because its absence dose not significantly affects the function of the wrist. It assumes great importance when used as a donor tendon for transfer or transplant. In this study an attempt has been made to correlate the absence of Palmaris longus with other anatomical anomalies. Material and Methods The presence of Palmaris longus was clinically determined in 300 normal Indian men and women using the standard technique. Allen`s test was done to assess the palmar arches. All the subjects were examined for the presence of Flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS) to the little finger. Results The overall prevalence of absence of the Palmaris longus was 26.9 %.
