This structure is a flattened muscle that is a supernumerary variant of latissimus dorsi muscle, which emerges from it in the vicinity of the intertubercular sulcus of the humerus and runs down the medial side of the arm until it reaches the medial epicondyle or the olecranon (Testut).
Medial epicondyle avulsion fractures account for approximately 10% of pediatric elbow fractures, usually ages 7-15 years.
Medial epicondyle fractures most commonly result from a valgus moment to the elbow leading to an apophyseal avulsion.
Volar wrist braces have also been studied for conservative management of epicondyle pain.
Now site for femoral tunnel was marked approximately 1 cm distal and 5 mm posterior to the adductor tubercle, slight proximal to the medial epicondyle. Confirmation was done using C-arm.
Note the presence of a well-ossified medial epicondyle epiphysis (red arrow) and simultaneous absence of the radial head epiphysis.
Its humeral head is small, and originates from the medial epicondyle; the origin of the ulnar head is extensive, and it attaches to the medial margin of the olecranon and proximal two-thirds of the posterior border of the ulna.
The purpose of this case study was to report the surgical outcomes of a patient with malunion of the avulsed lateral humeral epicondyle and subluxation of the humeroradial joint.
One needle was inserted through the ganglion towards the wrist joint and the second needle was inserted at Large Intestine-11 (LI-11), which is located over the lateral epicondyle of the elbow.
Proximal to the elbow joint, the ulnar nerve passes into the posterior compartment of the arm and descends between the medial epicondyle of the humerus and olecranon process of the ulna to form the ulnar groove.
In our report, distal humeral bone fracture was divided into three types of fracture: Supracondylar, lateral condyle and medial epicondyle. After noting some fractures, we found that a total of 112 cases made this type of fracture the second most common.
