Fingers 手指 Pulp space of the fingers 指髓间隙 The deep fascia of the pulp of each finger fuses with the periosteum of the terminal phalanx just distal to the insertion of the long flexor tendons and closes off a facial compartment known as the pulp space. Each pulp space is subdivided by the presence of numerous septa, which pass from the deep fascia to the periosteum. Through the pulp space, which is filled with fat, runs the terminal branches of the digital artery that supplies the diaphysis of the terminal phalanx.. The pulp space is limited proximally by the firm adherence of skin and the distal flexion crease to the underlying tissue; this prevents pulp infection from spreading proximally along the finger.
