BACKGROUND: The human elbow maintains its stability mainly through its bony structure. Stability is enhanced by ligamentous structures. To allow the ligamento-muscular reflex, which protects against strain and stress, mechanoreceptors are embedded in the ligament. This report describes the existence and the distribution of the elbow medial collateral ligaments (MCLs) mechanoreceptors. HYPOTHESIS: 1) the bony attachment site has the highest density of mechanoreceptors, and 2) the anterior part has the highest density of mechanoreceptors...

Snapping triceps corresponds to subluxation of the medial head of the triceps brachii over the medial epicondyle during active elbow flexion. It is a rare and misleading condition that is often associated with ulnar nerve instability. The latter can result in the snapping triceps being missed. Diagnosis requires a detailed clinical examination. Surgical treatment consists of anterior translocation of the nerve with an adipose flap to stabilize it and transfer of the distal attachment of the medial head of triceps brachii...

BACKGROUND: The medial triceps brachii is vascularized by the middle collateral artery and the arterial circle of the elbow. This vascularization allows a distal pedicled use to cover soft tissue defects of the elbow. We report our experience using this flap to cover traumatic and postsurgical wounds. METHODS: Patients who underwent a pedicled medial triceps brachii flap procedure between 2008 and 2015 were included. Data concerning characteristics of the patients, wound size, surgical technique, and complications were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: There has been no study on radiologic changes after medial ulnar collateral ligament (MUCL) reconstruction and related clinical features. METHODS: Data from 39 baseball players who underwent MUCL reconstruction were collected and analyzed. The baseball players were classified into 2 groups according to the starting point of the humeral tunnel: (1) the lower tip of the medial epicondyle (group NA, n = 21) and (2) the remnant of the MUCL (group A, n = 18)...

BACKGROUND: Femoral rotational alignment is considered an essential factor for total knee arthroplasty because malrotation of femoral components results in poor outcomes. To obtain proper alignment, we developed a superimposable computed tomography (CT) scan-based template to intraoperatively determine the accurate surgical epicondylar axis (SEA), and evaluated the effectiveness of this CT template. METHODS: In the experimental group (n=55), three serial slices of CT images, including medial and lateral epicondyles, were merged into a single image, and SEA was overlaid...

Medial-sided elbow pain is becoming more common among pediatric overhead sport athletes. One potential cause of this is a partial or complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL). Because the growth plate remains open in many of these athletes, the most common injury experienced is an avulsion at the medial epicondyle. However, although rare, there is a potential to tear the UCL, with the most common tears occurring at the anterior bundle. However, tears to the posterior bundle are quite rare in pediatric patients...

Edie Benedito Caetano, João José Sabongi Neto, Lucas Augusto Ayres Ribas, Edson Vinícius Milanello
Anatomical variations of the flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS) muscle and tendon unit are frequently reported by anatomists and clinicians. Anatomical muscle variations of the FDS and its tendons may include variations of muscle belly, presence of accessory or duplicate tendons, abnormal tendon connections, and absence of muscle or tendon components. Such variations may or may not have clinical implications. This report presents a case not described previously: a unilateral accessory muscle of the flexor digitorum superficialis which was connected by a thick tendon to the flexor digitorum superficialis muscle; it was directed proximally to the insertion of the medial epicondyle of the humerus, next to the superficialis head of the pronator teres muscle...

Background: Medial instability of the patellofemoral joint is a rare but known phenomenon that may result from an incompetent lateral patellofemoral ligament (LPFL). Surgical reconstruction of the LPFL has been described. However, anatomic details of the ligament have not been the subject of scrutiny. Purpose: To describe the anatomic origin and insertion of the LPFL. Study Design: Descriptive laboratory study. Methods: Ten fresh-frozen, unpaired human cadaveric knees (mean age, 57 years) were dissected to identify the LPFL...

BACKGROUND: Rotational malalignment of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a potential cause for revision surgery; therefore, it is important to have valid criteria for evaluation of normal component rotational alignment. Because computed tomography (CT) is considered the most accurate method to assess the rotational alignment of prosthetic components, the objectives in this study were define the femoral component (FC) rotation by measuring the posterior condylar angle (PCA) and the condylar twist angle (CTA) in a patient population that underwent gap-balancing TKA; determine the reliability of the FC rotation by using these measurements; evaluate the inter-relationship between the PCA and CTA; and finally evaluate the frequency and agreement in identification of the medial epicondyle sulcus (MES)...

BACKGROUND: Medial collateral ligament (MCL) reconstruction of the elbow mandates precise characterization of where the centerline of elbow rotation projects onto the medial epicondyle (ME). A muscle-splitting approach allows the flexor-pronator muscles to remain attached to the ME and facilitates visualization of the MCL remnant, the sublime tubercle, and the ulnohumeral joint line. Knowledge of where the centerline of rotation intersects the ME relative to the ulnohumeral joint line may assist the surgeon during placement of the proximal drill hole...

The median nerve passes through the humeral and ulnar heads of the pronator teres muscle (PT), although variations such as absence of the ulnar head may exist. We observed histological sections of the upper extremity from 24 embryos and fetuses. In the early stage, the PT extended between the radius and the medial epicondyle of the humerus, but no candidate for the ulnar head was found. In mid-term fetuses, the ulnar margin of the PT was attached to the elbow joint capsule. Moreover, in late-stage fetuses, a small deep part of the PT arose from the thick joint capsule of the humero-ulnar joint near the coronoid process of the ulna...

Humeral medial epicondyle fractures constitute around 15% of pediatric elbow fractures. Up to 60% occur in association with elbow dislocations. Knowledge of potential imaging pitfalls when examining acute elbow fractures in children contributes significantly to accurate diagnosis. Nevertheless, management of missed pediatric medial epicondyle fractures has rarely been reported. We present an 11-year-old boy with a neglected and severely displaced medial epicondyle fracture with concurrent ulnar nerve palsy...

Temminck's ground pangolin is the only pangolin present in South Africa. It is a myrmecophagous mammal with a bipedal gait. The thoracic limbs are used to break open ant nests, dig for food, and expand previously occupied burrows. This study describes the osteology and radiological anatomy of the thoracic limbs of this threatened species. Thoracic limbs from four Temminck's ground pangolins, which succumbed from electrocution or natural causes, were digitally radiographed in situ. The individual bones were then cleaned, described and digitally radiographed...
