Sorry, no etymologies found.
When this occurs, it is hypothesized that venous blood within the vessels of the palmar aspect of the foot is forced into the micro venous vasculature within the vascular channels of the ungular cartilage of the foot.
The STHD defines the angle of the bar/wall, and the relationship they hold to the palmar axial projections of the ungular cartilages as the primary instigators of pastern movement upon impact, this would explain why performance horses are capable of dealing with the energies created at speed, with less than healthy frogs.
All directional movement of the ungular cartilages, coupled with distal palmar movement of P2 would result in a variable restriction of blood flow proximally from the foot.
Its attachment to the ungular cartilages and extensor process could prove to be a vital piece of the puzzle in the search to define proper foot function.
The coronary band Pulvinus coronae lies in the coronary groove immediately distal to the periople corium, proximal to the parietal surface of the distal phalanx, and abaxial of the ungular cartilages of the foot.
It then becomes the amount of pressure, and the health of hoof capsule, connective tissue, ungular cartilages, and digital cushion that will determine haemodynamic response and energy utilization.
This rapid exchange of blood under pressure from the ungular cartilage, and coronary vasculature to the proper palmar digital vein would result in a negative pressure in the foot.
