Posterior aspect of tendons and muscles of the right hand

The extensor retinaculum (dorsal carpal ligament), a strong, fibrous band, extending obliquely downward and medialward across the back of the wrist can be observed. It holds the tendons of the extensor muscles in place. It is continuous with the palmar carpal ligament, which is located on the anterior side of the forearm.
