Özet

The lumbrical. muscles are located in the midpalm, dorsal to the palmar aponeurosis. The main function of these muscles is an indirect contribution to interphalangeal joint extension by decreasing the flexor effect of the flexor digitorum profundus muscle. Due to their minor biomechanical. functions and suitable constructions, these muscles have been preferred in reconstructive surgery as local transposition flaps or pedicled flaps. Despite the surgical and clinical importance, vascular anatomical studies of these muscles are not well represented in the current literature.
