Manns RA, Lee JR: Critical evaluation of the radial-head capitellum
view in acute elbow with an effusion.
In 2007, surgeons are, for the first time, using SBi's new UNI-Elbow[TM] Radio Capitellum
is less commonly injured than the radial head.
Laterally, the radial head articulates with the capitellum
of the distal humerus.
Surgical Technique and Short Term Results for the Radio Capitellum
It is now described as 1 cm distal and 1 cm anterior to the lateral epicondyle in a sulcus that can be felt between the radial head and capitellum

22) They also included other joint surfaces, such as the talar dome, femoral head, capitellum
, and humeral head.
The distal humerus is composed of the trochlea medially and the capitellum
It occurs with a fall from a height and results in the radial head impacting on the anterior articular cortex of the distal humerus, shearing off the capitellum
and the lateral ridge of the trochlea.
The radial collateral ligament, or lateral collateral ligament, has its origination at the lateral humerus at the midpoint of the trochlea and capitellum
on the axis of rotation of the elbow.
In order to determine the effects of two different headless screw designs on fixation of simulated capitellum
fractures six matched pairs of embalmed humeri had simulated capitellum
