Özet

Objective: A detailed anatomical knowledge of the extensor tendons of the hand is essential for accomplishing successful tendon repair. The aim of this study was to investigate the similarities between the extensor tendon and the thickest intertendinous connections (IC) in the 4th intermetacarpal space, where Type 3 IC is most frequently seen.
