Study group discussion: Krukenberg in Medicine

What is..
Krukenberg tumor? 
Krukenberg procedure?
Krukenberg spindle?

Krukenberg spindle - Pigmentary glaucoma. 

Krukenberg tumor - Ovarian carcinoma metastasis, secondary from stomach. 

Krukenberg procedure - It's the procedure where the forearm is made into a pincer in case of amputation.

*An image of Krukenberg procedure was posted in the group, I can't paste it here due to copy right issues*

I have one doubt in the image.. The two bones Radius are ulna are separated to facilitate writing? Am I right?

Yes, they are separated n the flexors and extensor are positioned in such a way that the person can control the acts done by that forearm.

Very nice. Thank you!
