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.

Mentions: Seki et al. published a study of the LCLC in five osteoligamentous elbow preparations, which was a continuation of a previous study written in Japanese [28]. This Japanese study revealed that the LCLC of the elbow has a Y-shaped configuration, which consists of a superior, an anterior and a posterior band (Fig. 7).
