(OBQ12.231) A 32-year-old female sustains a proximal humerus fracture shown in Figure A. 1 Herniation may also result from injury or aging-related wear and tear. (B) Prior to tying of the sutures from the medial anchors, the … www.mskmedicine.com Biceps reflex (C5/C6) Brachioradialis reflex (C6/C5) Pronator Teres reflex (C6/C7) Triceps reflex (C7) Finger jerk reflex (C8) The anterior fat pad is usually concealed within the coronoid fossa or seen paralleling the anterior humeral line. Third, the external insertion on the tubercle of the radius enables it to act as a supinator of the radius and hand.
