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.

The anterior and posterior bands of the anterior bundle (AMCL) tighten in reciprocal fashion as the elbow is flexed and extended; they are separated by isometric fibres (arrows).

Figure 6: The anterior and posterior bands of the anterior bundle (AMCL) tighten in reciprocal fashion as the elbow is flexed and extended; they are separated by isometric fibres (arrows). Reprinted from Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery American, 1997, volume 79, 8, Biomechanical evaluation of the medial collateral ligament of the elbow, Callaway GH, Field LD, Deng XH, et al. 1223-1231, with permission from Rockwater and Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery.

Mentions: Callaway et al. examined the anatomy of the anterior bundle of the medial collateral ligament (AMCL) in 28 anatomic specimens [24]. The AMCL consisted of anterior and posterior bands that tightened in reciprocal fashion as the elbow was flexed and extended. The anterior band of the AMCL is taut in extension and relaxed in flexion; the posterior band of the AMCL behaves in a reciprocal fashion. Isometric fibres are found between the anterior and posterior bands of the AMCL (Fig. 6).
