Talk:Interphalangeal joints of the hand
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
Fingers and toes
I think these joints are found only in the fingers and toes, but this article doesn't mention that. Can anyone confirm this fact? Also, how can I flag this article as 'containing insufficient background for a layperson'? Cheers --Dan|(talk) 09:46, 2 July 2006 (UTC)
- The thumb got one interphalangeal joint as mentioned at the end of the article. Maybe the metacarpophalangeal joint of the thumb should not be mentioned in the article, though.

- More clear, I hope: The bones of the fingers and toes are the only human bones called phalanges. So, yes, these joints are only found in the fingers and toes.

The page does not state from what direction you count the joints when you identify the PIP and DIP joints.

This should be uncontroversial, unless the phrase "interphalangeal articulations of hand" is known to be the accepted term. I don't know much about anatomical terminology. :) Same thing goes for Interphalangeal articulations of foot. — Quuxplusone (talk) 17:13, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
