Abstract We present the MR and histopathologic findings of fibrolipomatous hamartoma (FLH) of the ulnar nerve in a 54-year-old woman, a lipomatous process that rarely affects the ulnar nerve. The case illustrated is further unusual as a local soft tissue recurrent mass developed over a remarkably long course of the disease.

    Chronic ulnar nerve subluxation out of its sulcus in the elbow region may be a rare reason for undefined chronic disorders in the medial elbow aspect. We present two cases, a 38-year-old male patient complaining of a recurrent painful disorder including paresthesia of the 4th and 5th fingers and...

    Total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) with the GSB III prosthesis was performed in 32 patients (36 elbows) with rheumatoid arthritis between 2001 and 2009. At final follow-up, 31 patients (35 TEAs) were available for clinical and radiological evaluation. The mean follow-up period was 6.3 (2.0-10.3)...

    A common cause for nerve conduction studies is diagnosis of ulnar nerve compression. The most common site of the lesion is in the elbow region, but due to technical factors exact localization of the site of the lesion could be difficult. This study was performed to investigate if additional...
