Pisiform: a small wrist bone that articulates only with the triquetral
Source: WordNet 2.1
Pisiform: The pisiform is one of eight small carpal bones, which are located in each wrist. The pisiform is also a sesamoid bone and articulates only with the triangular bone. Its function is different than other carpal bones, which allow for the movement of the wrist. The pisiform's function is to provide one insertion point and increase the torque of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle of the forearm.
The pisiform bone forms a part of the appendicular skeleton. Conditions that can afflict the pisiform bone include infection, trauma, fracture, osteoporosis, osteomyelitis and dislocations.
