Trigon of proximal phalanx - Trigonum phalangis proximalis

Description

The proximal phalanx (first phalanx) is composed by a proximal extremity (base), a shaft (body) and a distal extremity (head).

In horses, the palmar surface of the body shows a rough triangular area called the trigonum phalangis proximalis which is bounded by bony ridges.
