Volar aspect of right hand
Flexor digitorum sublimis muscle (continued); tendons to second and fifth fingers
The superficial parts of the muscle (12) have been resected between the forearm and the third and fourth fingers. Remnants of the common synovial sheath (ulnar bursa) are visible over the flexor digitorum profundus (9) within the carpal canal, and distally over the lumbrical muscles (18).
