Intertubercular Groove

By | 2018-02-21T09:15:01+00:00 February 21st, 2018|Anatomy, Areas, Upper Limb|

A deep intertubercular sulcus a.k.a. bicipital groove or intertubercular groove divides the lesser and greater tubercles and afterwards proceeds interiorly over the proximal shaft of the humerus. The tendon of the long head of the biceps brachii travels via this sulcus. It contains: Long head of biceps, surrounded in the synovial sheath. Ascending division of [...]

Glenoid Cavity

By | 2018-02-20T09:16:26+00:00 February 20th, 2018|Anatomy, Areas, Upper Limb|

The scapula is a flat triangular bone and consists of three processes: the glenoid process, the acromial process, along with the coracoid process. The lateral angle of the scapula is represented by a shallow, somewhat comma-shaped glenoid cavity, which interconnects along with the head of the humerus in order to create the glenohumeral joint. [...]

Conoid Tubercle

By | 2018-02-01T07:27:22+00:00 January 16th, 2018|Anatomy, Areas, Upper Limb|

The conoid tubercle is a bony protrusion at the inferior surface of the lateral third of the clavicle. Location The conoid tubercle is located near the posterior border on the junction of the lateral one-fourth along with medial three-fourth of the clavicle on the inferior surface. The trapezoid ridge spreads forwards as well as laterally [...]

Acromion Process

By | 2018-02-01T08:34:35+00:00 January 10th, 2018|Anatomy, Areas, Upper Limb|

The acromion process is an anterolateral protuberance of the spine that arcs over the glenohumeral joint and articulates with the clavicle via a small oval facet on its distal end. From the lateral end of spine it protrudes forwards nearly at right angle and overhangs the glenoid cavity. It has subcutaneous superior surface. One of [...]

Head of the Humerus

By | 2018-02-01T08:37:50+00:00 January 10th, 2018|Anatomy, Areas, Upper Limb|

The humerus, a.k.a. the upper arm bone is the largest and longest bone of the upper limb. It is a comparatively thick bone with a large, smooth head at the proximal end and a number of projections a.k.a. “process” at the distal end. Head of Humerus Proximal Humerus/Head The proximal end of the [...]

Olecranon Fossa

By | 2018-02-01T07:41:49+00:00 December 20th, 2017|Anatomy, Areas, Upper Limb|

Olecranon fossa is a depression situated directly superior to trochlea, at the posterior part of the distal end of the humerus. The olecranon process of ulna fits into olecranon fossa during full extension of elbow. Olecranon fossa is the largest of all three fossae in the region. The capsule of elbow joint is connected above [...]

Medial Condyle

By | 2018-02-01T07:42:03+00:00 December 20th, 2017|Anatomy, Areas, Upper Limb|

Located at the terminals of a bone, a condyle is a round protrusion, which most commonly is an articulation with another bone and is a portion of a joint. It is among the anatomical or indicating markings or features of bones. Elbow Joint The two articular parts of the condyle connect with the two bones [...]

Capitulum of The Humerus

By | 2018-02-01T07:42:23+00:00 December 20th, 2017|Anatomy, Areas, Upper Limb|

In humerus bone, the lateral portion of the lower articular surface of the humerus consists of a smooth, rounded eminence, which is called the capitulum of the humerus. It is located laterally and is hemispherical in shape. Capitulum of Humerus The lower end of the humerus consists of several features: Condyle, which consists [...]

Anatomical Neck of Humerus

By | 2018-02-01T07:42:38+00:00 December 20th, 2017|Anatomy, Areas, Upper Limb|

The anatomical neck is created by a narrow contraction directly distal towards the head of humerus. It is located near the head along with the greater and lesser tubercles laterally. Anatomical Neck of Humerus It provides connection to the capsular ligament of the shoulder joint, except superiorly in which the capsule is deficient. [...]
