Description

The intermetacarpal joints are formed by the articulations of the bases of the metacarpal bones with one another. These are plane synovial joints. The intermetacarpal joints are stabilized by the dorsal, palmar, and interosseous metacarpal ligaments and permit slight gliding between the articulations.
