• condyles
  • In non-avian archosaurs, including crocodiles, the capitellum and the trochlea are no longer bordered by distinct ect- and entepicondyles respectively, and the distal humerus consists two gently expanded condyles, one lateral and one medial, separated by a shallow groove and a supinator process. (wikipedia.org)
  • muscles
  • The lateral epicondyle of the humerus is a small, tuberculated eminence, curved a little forward, and giving attachment to the radial collateral ligament of the elbow joint, and to a tendon common to the origin of the supinator and some of the extensor muscles. (wikipedia.org)
  • abduction
  • Furthermore, the novel humeral component described herein necessitates the removal of the tuberosities of the humerus (which oftentimes impedes abduction) which are left in place by the use of the standard Stanmore prosthesis. (google.com)
  • It inserts on the greater tubercle of the humerus, and assists in abduction of the shoulder. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgical
  • The interest of this study is in improving the knowledge of animal humerus biomechanics and its application in orthopaedic design and surgical treatments. (hindawi.com)
  • humeral
  • Shank 12 is sized and shaped for attaching the humeral component in the medullary canal of the humerus. (google.com)
  • Baumann's angle, also known as the humeral-capitellar angle, is measured on an AP radiograph of the elbow between the long axis of the humerus and the growth plate of the lateral condyle. (wikipedia.org)
  • shoulder
  • An X-ray of the humerus is a safe and painless test that uses a small amount of radiation to make images of the upper arm (between the shoulder and elbow). (kidshealth.org)
  • A novel humerus element is provided which forms part of a total shoulder prosthesis. (google.com)
  • The humerus (/ˈhjuːmərəs/, Plural: humeri) is a long bone in the arm or forelimb that runs from the shoulder to the elbow. (wikipedia.org)
  • The word "humerus" is derived from Latin: humerus, umerus meaning upper arm, shoulder, and is linguistically related to Gothic ams shoulder and Greek ōmos. (wikipedia.org)
  • shaft
  • The body or shaft of the humerus is almost cylindrical in the upper half of its extent, prismatic and flattened below, and has three borders and three surfaces. (wikipedia.org)
  • upper
  • A humerus X-ray can help find the cause of common signs or symptoms such as pain, tenderness, swelling, or deformity of the upper arm. (kidshealth.org)
  • body
  • Although there's some risk to the body with any exposure to radiation, the amount used in a humerus X-ray is small and not considered dangerous. (kidshealth.org)
