- Lateral epicondyle of the humerus
Bone: Lateral epicondyle of the humerus The Supinator. (Lateral epicondyle labeled at upper right.) Left elbow-joint, showing posterior and radial collateral ligaments. (Lateral epicondyle visible at center.) Latin e. lateralis humeri Gray's subject #51 212
The lateral epicondyle of the humerus is a small, tuberculated eminence, curved a little forward, and giving attachment to the radial collateral ligament of the elbow-joint, and to a tendon common to the origin of the Supinator and some of the Extensor muscles. In birds, where the arm is somewhat rotated compared to other tetrapods, it is termed dorsal epicondyle of the humerus.
