Left Elbow Medial Epicondylectomy and Ulnar Nerve Release
This exhibit depicts a left elbow medial epicondylectomy and ulnar nerve release. The procedure begins with a 10 cm incision over the medial epicondyle of the humerus. The ulnar nerve is then identified and decompressed by unroofing the cubital tunnel. Soft tissue attachments are elevated off of the medial epicondyle, and the prominent epicondyle is rasped until smooth. Muscle attachments are then sutured back to the humerus, with the released ulnar nerve remaining beneath them.
