MEDIAL-Palpation of soft tissue

Keep the subject’s elbow almost completely extended and in full supination. Move the finger from the medial aspect of the medial epicondyle about 1-1.5 cm towards the anterior aspect. Palpate for a tough round structure. This is the common tendon of the flexors.0.5 em more distally, just below the inferior border of the epicondyle and with the elbow slightly flexed, a thick and round muscular mass is palpable: the musculotendinous junction of this flexor group consisting of, from medial to lateral: the flexor carpi uLnaris, the palmari longus, the flexor carpi radialis and the pronate
teres.Lateral to the common flexor tendon the media nerve is palpable as a round but soft structure.
