Morphology of the cubital tunnel: an anatomical and biomechanical study with implications for treatment of ulnar nerve compression.

Abstract

PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to provide a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the cubital tunnel and to outline specific anatomical parameters of the cubital tunnel retinaculum (CuTR) that might aid in the management of ulnar nerve problems. The hypotheses of this study are (1) that the nerve elongates with elbow flexion and (2) that the cross… (More)
