Summary Information: Carpals

Carpals: The carpals are a group of bones located in the wrist and hand area. There are eight small carpals in each wrist, and they form a part of the appendicular skeleton. The carpals articulate with each other and the radius, ulna, and the metacarpals to form the wrist joint. The functions of the carpals include supporting movement of the extremities, creating insertion points for ligaments, and storing some minerals, such as calcium and phosphorus.

The carpals include the lunate, scaphoid, trapezium, trapezoid, Triangular bone, pisiform, hamate, and capitate. Conditions that can afflict the carpals include infection, trauma, fracture, osteoporosis, osteomyelitis and dislocations.
