El musculo pronador teres (pronator teres) se inicio por dos ramas, una en el epicondilo medial y ligamento colateral y otra en proximal de la fosa coronoidea del humero, insertandose por un tendon aplanado en la cara dorsal del radio (Figura 8).

If the history and physical exam suggest a scaphoid fracture, the initial imaging studies should include plain radiographs in the conventional manner (anteroposterior, lateral, and oblique views), along with three specialized views (posteroanterior in ulnar deviation, pronator oblique, and supinated oblique) which increase the sensitivity of finding an acute scaphoid fracture.
Las masas pueden afectar un solo miembro, o bien, ser bilaterales (17, 18) y pueden encontrarse adheridas a la capsula articular del codo (15) o en los tendones de los musculos flexores del codo, como el musculo flexor digitalis profundus (13), musculo flexor digitalis superficialis (6, 13, 15), musculo flexor carpi ulnaris (18), musculo flexor carpi radialis (17, 18) o musculo pronator teres (13, 17)
