A Tribute to Nick Short

It is with extreme sadness that we share the news that one of WikiVet’s founders, Nick Short, has passed away.

Nick was the driving force behind WikiVet and all that it stood for, and it is thanks to his vision, innovative approach and tireless enthusiasm and belief, that WikiVet is available as a free resource to veterinary professionals around the world today. Nick’s dedication and passion for veterinary education were truly inspirational and his very many friends, colleagues and students across the world have lost a true gem. He was an exceptional human being: gentle, good-natured, charming, generous and kind: he has left many legacies which will ensure that he will be remembered for many years.

Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this heartbreaking time. A book of remembrance has been set up for anyone that would like to leave a message of condolence for Nick and his family have asked that anyone who wishes to do so make a donation to BipolarUK, a charity that was close to Nick’s heart.

===Distal Interphalangeal (Coffin) Joint===
The coffin joint, between the distal trochlea of the [[Phalanges - Horse Anatomy#Middle Phalanx|middle phalanx]], [[Phalanges - Horse Anatomy#Distal Phalanx|distal phalanx]] and the [[Phalanges - Horse Anatomy#Distal Sesamoid (Navicular) Bone|distal sesamoid ('''navicular bone''')]], allows extension and slight flexion movements. The '''navicular bursa''' lies between the [[Phalanges - Horse Anatomy#Distal Sesamoid (Navicular) Bone|navicular bone]] and the deep digital flexor tendon. The joint capsule attaches to the articular periphery and has two pouches, a small dorsal and larger palmar pouch.  The dorsal pouch extends under the common digital extensor tendon to just proximal of the coronary band. The palmar pouch extends under the deep digital flexor tendon to the approximately half way up the [[Phalanges - Horse Anatomy#Middle Phalanx|middle phalanx]]. It dips between the [[Phalanges - Horse Anatomy#Distal Phalanx|distal phalanx]]  and sesamoid and bulges laterally where it is related to the collateral ligaments.

The '''collateral ligaments''' connect the distal part of the [[Phalanges - Horse Anatomy#Middle Phalanx|middle phalanx]] to the medial and lateral sides of the proximal [[Phalanges - Horse Anatomy#Distal Phalanx|distal phalanx]] .

The '''collateral sesamoid ligaments''' are fibroelastic ligaments that attach to the [[Phalanges - Horse Anatomy#Proximal Phalanx|proximal phalanx]] with the collateral ligaments of the pastern joint and insert to the proximal border of the [[Phalanges - Horse Anatomy#Distal Sesamoid (Navicular) Bone|navicular bone]] .
