There are 5 anatomic sites of ulnar nerve compromise at the elbow: (1) intermuscular (IM) septum of the distal arm (including the Areade of Struthers, medial IM septum, hypertrophy of medial head of triceps brachii, and snapping of medial head triceps brachii); (2) medial epicondylc secondary to a valgus deformity of the bone; (3) epicondylar groove (lesions within and outside of the groove and subluxation or dislocation of the nerve); (4) cubital tunnel (due to a thickened Osborne's ligament, a fibrous fascia running between the humeral and ulnar heads to the FCU) or as the nerve passes through the proximal edge of the FCU; and (5) as the ulnar nerve exits through the FCU.
