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-sectional area of the cubital tunnel is inversely proportional to the degree of elbow flexion. METHODS Eleven fresh-frozen cadaver arms… CONTINUE READING
