BACKGROUND The purpose of our study was to quantify the dimensions of a surgically safe zone along the proximal part of the radius, from the posterolateral aspect. METHODS The posterolateral approach between the anconeus and the extensor carpi ulnaris was performed in thirty-two cadaveric specimens, and the posterior interosseous nerve was exposed. Forearms were measured from the radial styloid process to the radiocapitellar joint. The distance from the capitellum to the point where the… CONTINUE READING
