Medial epicondyle fractures most commonly result from a valgus moment to the elbow leading to an apophyseal avulsion.
If symptoms persist, steroid injection at the epicondyle can also be very helpful.

The epicondyles of the distal humerus also should be visualized, including at least 11/2 inches distal to the elbow joint.
The thigh reference frame was defined by the hip and knee joints and the epicondyle makers.
Next, we obtained radiographs of the left thigh, and used Kwon's method (Kwon et al., 2009) to describe the mediolateral and superior-inferior relationships between the NEP for each muscle and bony landmarks; a line joining the pubic tubercle and the greater trochanter of the femur was designated as the horizontal reference line (H); a line joining the pubic tubercle and the medial epicondyle of the femur was designated as the longitudinal reference line (L) (Fig.
A line is drawn connecting the two humeral epicondyles. Medial to the point of intersection of this line and the biceps tendon is the brachial artery.
The bony anatomy of the lateral and medial epicondyles is palpable and serves as the origins for the mobile wad and the flexor/pronator groups, respectively.
Our previous studies have shown that the interepicondylar line (IEL) linking the two epicondyles of humerus was useful for locating the medial and lateral antebrachial cutaneous nerves (Wongkerdsook et al., 2011; Damwan et al., 2014).
In most cases the muscular origins at the epicondyles are also disrupted.
Measurements: We used some bony landmarks, such as the most prominent point of the medial (MEH) and lateral epicondyles of the humerus (LEH) and the prominent point of the styloid process of the ulna (SPU) and radius (SPR).
