The elbow is an articulation of the upper limb
which joins the arm
to the the forearm
, and particularly three bones: humerus
, radius and ulna
Also called alecranon articulation, the elbow is composed in three articulations, which allow different moves of the arm: flexion/extension, rotation, pronation
Elbow pathologies are common (dislocations, tendinits...), almost for old people with arthritis
problems affecting cartilage.
