The carrying angle of the elbow is usually assessed in full elbow extension, with a protractor goniometer, or derived from X-ray images. Substantial differences in carrying angle values have been reported, possibly explained by methodological differences. Carrying angles tend to show higher values in women than in men. The aim of this study was to confirm the previously described progressive decrease of the carrying angle as a function of increasing elbow flexion. After assessment of the… Expand
