Stability of the elbow joint: relevant anatomy and clinical implications of in vitro biomechanical studies.

de Haan J, Schep NW, Eygendaal D, Kleinrensink GJ, Tuinebreijer WE, den Hartog D - Open Orthop J (2011)

Bottom Line: The aim of this literature review is to describe the clinical anatomy of the elbow joint based on information from in vitro biomechanical studies.The clinical consequences of this literature review are described and recommendations are given for the treatment of elbow joint dislocation.The PubMed and EMBASE electronic databases and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials were searched.Studies were eligible for inclusion if they included observations of the anatomy and biomechanics of the elbow joint in human anatomic specimens.Numerous studies of the kinematics, kinesiology and anatomy of the elbow joint in human anatomic specimens yielded important and interesting implications for trauma and orthopaedic surgeons.

Figure 5: Insertion (type 1 and 2) of the lateral collateral ligament and annular ligament onto the ulna. *Reprinted from Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery American, 1997, volume 79, 2, Rotatory instability of the elbow. The anatomy and role of the lateral stabilizers, Cohen MS and Hastings H, 225-233, with permission from Rockwater and Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery.

Mentions: Cohen et al. examined 40 elbows of human anatomic specimens to characterise the anatomy of the LCLC [22]. The LCL and the AL formed a broad conjoined insertion onto the proximal aspect of the ulna in all 40 specimens (Fig. 5). This conjoined tendon became taut with the forearm upon supination. In 22 specimens, the LCLC had a double, bidirectional insertion onto the ulna. In 18 specimens, a single broad conjoined ligament inserted onto the ulna. A separate band from the lateral epicondyle to the ulna, such as the LUCL in Fig. (3), was not identified.
