abstract

  • This anatomy has important implications for surgical repair of these tendon injuries. Rupture of the deep triceps insertion alone can occur and lead to weakness of elbow extension with the elbow flexed beyond 90 degrees . Triceps strength should be tested with the elbow fully flexed when injury to the tendinous insertion is suspected.
