It is generally thought that functional limitations following a proximal biceps rupture are relatively minimal, due to the work of other flexors and supinators, including the brachialis and brachioradialis.
Where in the human body would you find the brachialis muscle?
Underneath that is a muscle called brachialis, and then there's a third muscle called brachioradialis that kind of helps with elbow flexion.
Similar osseous changes to the distal left humerus and both proximal ulnae are visible in the areas of origin and insertion for the brachialis muscle.
Among the 3 slices (50% of upper arm, 10 mm distal and proximal), the same investigator calculated the muscle CSA of the biceps brachii and the brachialis twice; the mean value was used for calculations.

The anterior medial approach is performed with an incision from triceps and biceps brachii clearance to enter, to avoid splitting the brachialis muscle tissue, and reduce intra-operative bleeding.
When the origin of AM is located proximally above the elbow level from the brachial artery (arteria brachialis [AB]) or from the axillary artery (arteria axillaris, AA), such a variant should be termed the brachiomedian artery (ABM), as proposed by Rodriguez-Niedenfuhr et al.
