Aponeurosis Length and Fascicle Insertion Angles of the Biceps Brachii

  title={Aponeurosis Length and Fascicle Insertion Angles of the Biceps Brachii},
  author={George P. Pappas and Scott L. Delp and John E Drace}
Magnetic resonance images and ultrasound images were used to examine the architecture of the distal biceps brachii muscle in 12 unimpaired subjects. The distal biceps brachii tendon continued as an internal aponeurosis that spanned 34 ± 4% of the length of the biceps brachii long head muscle on average. The distal muscle fascicles inserted at angles to this aponeurosis; fascicles anterior to the aponeurosis inserted at a significantly greater (p ≤ 0.05) angle (17◦) than the fascicles posterior… CONTINUE READING
