• 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)
  • lateral
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • A common injury associated with the lateral epicondyle of the humerus is lateral epicondylitis also known as tennis elbow. (wikipedia.org)
  • Medial epicondyle of the humerus Common extensor tendon Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) Left humerus. (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)
  • humeral
  • Shank 12 is sized and shaped for attaching the humeral component in the medullary canal of the humerus. (google.com)
