  • PurposeAs there are a few detailed anatomical studies of the active function of anconeus muscle in stabilizing the elbow, we aimed to look for anatomical features confirming its role as an active stabilizer of the humero-ulnar joint.MethodsThirty fresh unembalmed elbows from 15 cadavers were dissected. We examined the anatomy, insertions, relationships and orientation of the muscle fibres of the anconeus.ResultsThe anconeus lies in a separate compartment from the other forearm muscles, but in… CONTINUE READING
