Introduction. The coronoid process of the mandible, part of the ramus mandibulae of the mandible; The coronoid process of the ulna, a triangular eminence projecting forward from the upper and front part of the ulna coronoid process of the ulna radial fossa of the humerus coronoid fossa of the humerus radial notch of the ulna. It acts as a bony buttress to prevent posterior dislocation; additional stability is provided by its three soft insertions, namely the anterior joint capsule of the elbow, the brachialis muscle and the medial ulnar collateral ligament. One or more fragments of bone may fracture from inner aspect coronoid process immediately adjacent to humeral head/apex coronoid process. The proximal end of the ulna articulates with the trochlea of the humerus. Distal. The Ulna's coronoid process is a triangular eminence projecting forward from the anterior proximal portion of the ulna. Regan W, Morrey B. Which structure is highlighted? Trochlear notch –Formed by the olecranon and coronoid process. The Ulna's coronoid process is a triangular eminence projecting forward from the anterior proximal portion of the ulna. Coronoid process –This elevation of bone projects outwards anteriorly, producing part of the trochlear notch.. Olecranon –A large prominence of bone that extends proximally, making part of trochlear notch.It can be palpated as the ‘tip’ of the elbow. A lateral elbow radiograph demonstrates about half of the radial head superimposed by the coronoid process of the ulna.Which of the following occurred? To enable movement at the elbow joint, the ulna has a specialised structure, with bony prominences for muscle attachment. b. The patient was referred to an orthopaedic surgeon who recommended conservative management, which consisted of relative rest, ice, compression, and pain-free progressive therapeutic exercise focusing on regaining full elbow extension and function. A review of thirty-five patients who had a fracture of the coronoid process of the ulna revealed three types of fracture: Type I--avulsion of the tip of the process; Type II--a fragment involving 50 per cent of the process, or less; and Type III--a fragment involving more than 50 per cent of the process. O’Driscoll SW, Jupiter JB, Cohen MS, Ring D, McKee MD. The ulna is a long bone found in the forearm that stretches from the elbow to the smallest finger, and when in anatomical position, is found on the medial side of the forearm. Medial Distal Ring D. (2006) “Fractures of the coronoid process of the ulna.” Ulnar coronoid process, Fracture, Complication, Therapy. Ulnar coronoid process (UCP) fracture, a type of fracture uncommon in clinical practice, is a complex intra-articular fracture. 71(9):1348-54.

Important landmarks of the proximal ulna are the olecranon, coronoid process, trochlear notch, radial notch and the tuberosity of ulna: The ulna's coronoid process is the bony prominence on the most proximal portion of the ulna’s volar surface. (2003) :Difficult elbow fractures: pearls and pitfalls.” Instr Course Lect 52:113–134. The muscle of triceps brachii attaches to its superior surface. head. In connection with the olecranon process, it forms the greater sigmoid notch which articulates with the distal humerus at the elbow joint.

The coronoid process is a triangular projection on the anterior surface of the third olecranon bone. It serves as a buttress, preventing posterior displa … a. The pathogenic mechanism of UCP fracture is very complicated and thus it is misdiagnosed or neglected usually. The hand and wrist were rotated laterally and not in a true lateral position.
