Gunther [29], also found that the ligament can exist in the absence of a real supracondylar process, that it originates from the anteromedial humeral surface approximately 5 cm above the elbow, that it extends to the anterior part of the medial epicondyle where its fan-like insertion is clearly separate from the more superior and posterior insertion of the medial intermuscular septum.
At the lower end of the groove the nerve pierced the lateral intermuscular septum and passes into the anterior compartment along with the descending branch of posterior circumflex humeral artery which started accompanying the radial nerve in the middle of the radial groove thereby replacing the anterior division (radial collateral)of Profunda brachii artery which usually accompanies it.
