(13) further elucidated insertional anatomy with their description of how the lacertus fibrosus stabilizes the short head tendon and is disrupted in cases of significant proximal retraction of the distal biceps.
Se procedio a retirar la piel, se prescindio de la fascia superficial, los elementos vasculares de la region cubital y el lacertus fibroso.
It courses down the arm adjacent to the brachialis muscle, crosses the antecubital fossa under the lacertus fibrosus, and then travels between the superficial and deep heads of the pronator teres muscle.
(38-40) Of note, the tendon rarely retracts significantly into the arm because it is partially tethered by the bicipital aponeurosis, also known as the lacertus fibrosis.
For example, there are expansions of pectoralis major muscle to the brachial fascia, continuing via lacertus fibrosus and biceps muscle to the antebrachial fascia and flexor carpi radialis, then to the flexor retinaculum, and finally to the palmaris longus muscle connecting to the fascia of the thenar eminence [13].
lacertus blotches, the blotches in the two rows offset and reminiscent of the dark squares on a checker-board; lateral scale rows 38-42 2b.
The level of lacertus reaction of NADPICDG activity also was lower in all stages of disease.
When Albert distinguishes two kinds of muscle, musculus and lacertus, a distinction which does not correspond to any made by modern medical terminology, the translators settle reluctantly for 'muscle' and 'lacertus-muscle'.
Se procedio a retirar la piel, se prescindio del tejido adiposo subcutaneo, la fascia superficial, los elementos vasculares de la region cubital y el lacertus fibroso.
The exam maneuver is performed by having the patient actively flex the elbow to 90[degrees] and fully supinate the forearm, and with a normal test, the examiner should be able to insert the index finger about 1cm deep to a cord like structure in the antecubital fossa, approached from the lateral side to avoid false positives from the intact lacertus aponeurosis.
(4,5) A third head (10%) to the biceps brachii is occasionally found arising at the upper and medial part of the brachialis, with the fibers of which it is continuous, and inserted into the lacertus fibrosus and medial side of the tendon of the muscle.
