OBJECTIVE We sought to describe the operative technique in ulnar nerve compression caused by the epitrochleoanconeus muscle and a prominent medial head of the triceps. These anatomic features make the approach to the ulnar nerve at the elbow peculiar and may create technical difficulties during surgical treatment of this area. METHODS We reviewed patients who underwent surgery for cubital tunnel syndrome between November 1997 and December 2004. The presence of the epitrochleoanconeus muscle… Expand
