anconeal process
the projection of the ulna that occupies the olecranon fossa of the humerus when the elbow is extended and which develops as a separate ossification center in some dogs.
ununited anconeal process
a failure of the anconeal process to unite with the ulna, resulting in fracture through the growth plate. Seen mainly in young dogs of large breeds, causing varying degrees of weight-bearing lameness and arthritis. Demonstrated radiographically after 5 months of age and usually treated surgically by removal of the fragment. Called also elbow dysplasia.
