1. A new local muscle flap for elbow coverage-the medial triceps brachii flap: anatomy, surgical technique, and preliminary outcomes. (PubMed)

A new local muscle flap for elbow coverage-the medial triceps brachii flap: anatomy, surgical technique, and preliminary outcomes. The medial triceps brachii is vascularized by the middle collateral artery and the arterial circle of the elbow. This vascularization allows a distal pedicled use to cover soft tissue defects of the elbow. We report our experience using this flap to cover traumatic and postsurgical wounds.Patients who underwent a pedicled medial triceps brachii flap procedure (...) between 2008 and 2015 were included. Data concerning characteristics of the patients, wound size, surgical technique, and complications were retrospectively reviewed. An independent observer examined patients and assessed outcome of the coverage procedure: wound healing, scar length, range of elbow motion, and patient satisfaction.Eight patients were included (70.6 ± 17.7 years old at the time of surgery). All patients had serious comorbidities and risk factors of poor wound healing. Defects were due

2. Understanding the medial ulnar collateral ligament of the elbow: Review of native ligament anatomy and function (PubMed)

Understanding the medial ulnar collateral ligament of the elbow: Review of native ligament anatomy and function The medial ulnar collateral ligament complex of the elbow, which is comprised of the anterior bundle [AB, more formally referred to as the medial ulnar collateral ligament (MUCL)], posterior (PB), and transverse ligament, is commonly injured in overhead throwing athletes. Attenuation or rupture of the ligament results in valgus instability with variable clinical presentations. The AB (...) or MUCL is the strongest component of the ligamentous complex and the primary restraint to valgus stress. It is also composed of two separate bands (anterior and posterior) that provide reciprocal function with the anterior band tight in extension, and the posterior band tight in flexion. In individuals who fail comprehensive non-operative treatment, surgical repair or reconstruction of the MUCL is commonly required to restore elbow function and stability.

3. Insertional anatomy of the anterior medial collateral ligament on the sublime tubercle of the elbow. (PubMed)

Insertional anatomy of the anterior medial collateral ligament on the sublime tubercle of the elbow. Acute injuries to the anterior medial collateral ligament (AMCL) can occur due to valgus trauma or during other dislocating events to the elbow. AMCL lesions are often associated with bony lesions, such as radial head fractures or fractures of the coronoid process. We analyzed the insertion of the AMCL on the sublime tubercle in relation to surrounding osseous structures. We aimed to increase (...) the understanding of the involvement of the AMCL in bony lesions to the sublime tubercle.We investigated 86 elbows from 43 embalmed human specimens. We measured the most ventral extensions of the AMCL at the sublime tubercle in relation to a clearly defined and reproducible landmark. We used as our landmark a horizontal line (baseline) originating on the lesser sigmoid notch in a right angle to the ulnar ridge.The mean distance of the coronoid process tip to the baseline was 4.0 mm (standard deviation [SD], 1.3

8. Osseous anatomy of the distal humerus and proximal ulna: implications for total elbow arthroplasty. (PubMed)

Osseous anatomy of the distal humerus and proximal ulna: implications for total elbow arthroplasty. Cortical thickness and multiple intramedullary canal diameters were measured in sequential axial sections from 27 human cadavers. No age or side differences were identified. The intramedullary humeral canal shape changed along the length of the bone in both male specimens and female specimens. Anteroposterior and male minimal humeral canal diameters increased proximally from the elbow. Male (...) and female medial-lateral humeral diameters decreased proximally from the elbow. All ulnar canal diameters decreased distally in a uniform fashion. The minimal ulnar and humeral canal diameters did not occur in either the sagittal or coronal plane. Humeral and ulnar cortical thickness did not vary within axial sections. Only ulnar cortical thickness changed between sections, decreasing distally. On the basis of these data, a cylindrical humeral stem and an ulnar stem tapering in all planes may be optimal

19. Elbow Arthroscopy Made Simple: Indications and Techniques. (PubMed)

Elbow Arthroscopy Made Simple: Indications and Techniques. Elbow arthroscopy is a technically demanding procedure. A comprehensive understanding of the elbow neurovascular anatomy combined with a very detail-oriented technique for portal placement helps to minimize risk and facilitates performing elbow arthroscopic procedures effectively and safely for the appropriate indications. The technique for establishing all portals is critical regardless of which portals are used. Care should be taken (...) the joint before portal placement is that insufflation increases anterior capsular tension, making penetration of the capsule with the blunt trocars easier and more reliable. In summary, elbow arthroscopy is a reliable procedure that requires a clear understanding of the anatomy to be able to safely access the joint.Copyright © 2019 Arthroscopy Association of North America.

20. Editorial Commentary: Safety in Anteromedial Elbow Portal Placement? Go North! (PubMed)

Editorial Commentary: Safety in Anteromedial Elbow Portal Placement? Go North! Since iatrogenic injury to surrounding structures is more likely in the elbow than in the other major joints, many studies have examined the relationship of elbow arthroscopy portals to the at-risk anatomy. In accessing the anterior compartment of the elbow from the medial side, the brachial artery and median, ulnar, and medial antebrachial cutaneous nerves are at risk. Factors that improve the safety (...) of this approach include the use of a proximal versus distal anteromedial portal, a distended versus and nondistended joint, and a flexed versus extended elbow position, all of which result in an approximate margin of safety of 2 cm from the deep at-risk structures.Copyright © 2019 Arthroscopy Association of North America.
