Femoral section was done with appropriate femoral rotation with reference to epicondylar line or Whiteside line.
The dorsoepicondylar medial muscle described in this case includes anatomical origins that involve the latissimus dorsi and the pectoralis major muscles, the dorsi-pecturum-medial epicondylar being the most accurate designation since it was the latissimus dorsi muscle that contributes most in its formation.
Fractures Involving the Medial Epicondylar Apophysis (3rd ed).
The peer reviewed paper titled, "First clinical experience with a new injectable recombinant human collagen scaffold combined with autologous platelet-rich plasma for the treatment of lateral epicondylar tendinopathy (tennis elbow)" was published in the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery.
We defined the femoral coronal plane by the epicondylar axis and the lowest point of the lesser trochanter.
The right ulnar nerve was observed expanded at the level of the right retro epicondylar groove (14.2 [mm.sup.2]) (Figure 4).
An additional option for defining the rotational orientation of the femoral component is not implemented to the pinless verification workflow as freehand navigation techniques have not been able to demonstrate superior precision of rotational implant orientation due to the difficult digitization of landmarks for short axes, for example, epicondylar axis [19-21].
The Effectiveness of Kinesio Taping for Athletes with Medial Elbow Epicondylar Tendinopathy.
There are 5 anatomic sites of ulnar nerve compromise at the elbow: (1) intermuscular (IM) septum of the distal arm (including the Areade of Struthers, medial IM septum, hypertrophy of medial head of triceps brachii, and snapping of medial head triceps brachii); (2) medial epicondylc secondary to a valgus deformity of the bone; (3) epicondylar groove (lesions within and outside of the groove and subluxation or dislocation of the nerve); (4) cubital tunnel (due to a thickened Osborne's ligament, a fibrous fascia running between the humeral and ulnar heads to the FCU) or as the nerve passes through the proximal edge of the FCU; and (5) as the ulnar nerve exits through the FCU.
