E) Its function is to abduct the 5th digit to approximately a 45-degree angle. (f) This muscle performs a digastrics function with the flexor Carpi ulnaris. As the origin of the abductor digiti minimi is on a sesamoid bone (flouting bone), it makes the flexor Carpi ulnaris to contract each time the abductor digiti minimi is used to steady the pisiform bone. Paralysis of the Flexor Carpi ulnaris produces a significant weakness of the Abductor Digiti minimi, because the insertion of the muscle moves.
