ulna

 [ul´nah] (L.)
the inner and larger bone of the forearm, on the side opposite the thumb. It articulates with the humerus and with the head of the radius at its proximal end; with the radius and bones of the carpus at the distal end.

ulna

(ŭl′nə)
n. pl. ul·nas or ul·nae (-nē)
1. The bone extending from the elbow to the wrist on the side opposite to the thumb in humans.
2. A corresponding bone in the forelimb of other vertebrates.

ul′nar adj.

ulna

[ul′nə]
Etymology: L, elbow
the bone on the medial or little finger side of the forearm, lying parallel with the radius. Its proximal end bulges into the olecranon and the coronoid processes and dips into the trochlear and radial notches. The ulna articulates with the humerus and the radius. Also called elbow bone. See also radius.

ul·na

pl. ulnae (ŭl'nă, -nē) [TA]
The medial and larger of the two bones of the forearm.

[L. elbow, arm, fr. G. ōlenē]

ulna

One of the pair of forearm long bones. The ulna is on the little finger side. At its upper end it has a hook-like process, the olecranon, that fits into a hollow at the back of the lower end of the upper arm bone (the humerus) and prevents the elbow from over-extending. When the hand is turned on the long axis of the arm, the radius bone rotates around the ulna.

ulna

the posterior of the two bones of the forearm of TETRAPODS which articulates proximally with the HUMERUS and distally with the CARPALS. see PENTADACTYL LIMB.

ulna

larger of the two forearm bones, articulating at the elbow with the humerus and at the wrist with the carpal bones. ulnar adj in descriptions of forearm structures: on or towards the side of the ulna, i.e. the fifth finger side. Figure 1.

ul·na

(ŭl'nă, -nē) [TA]

ulna

together with the radius, forms the skeleton of the forearm. See Table 10.

Of the 4 birds, 50% (2 of 4) of the ulna defects were healed with fibrous tissue covering the graft.
Graft healing with the combination of DBM and HA: At 3 weeks after implanting the DBM-HA graft combination, the ulna defects in all 4 birds were healed completely with fibrous tissue union (Fig 6).

In this study, HA, a synthetic bone graft material that is very slowly resorbed, was tested alone for efficacy in CSD healing of the pigeon ulna.

Con el test de Spearman rho para muestras no parametricas, en la ulna derecha e izquierda, radio izquierdo y humero izquierdo, no se encontro correlacion entre la longitud del hueso y el nivel de posicion del foramen nutricio.
El numero de foramenes nutricios que presentaron los huesos humero, ulna y radio, los promedios y desviacion estandar de las variables estudiadas, se encuentran en las Tablas I, II, III, y IV, respectivamente.
Los foramenes nutricios estan ubicados en la cara antero medial para el caso del humero, y en la cara anterior en la ulna y radio (Poirier; Orts Llorca; Chatain-Bustamante).
En el humero, la localizacion del foramen en relacion con la longitud total del hueso fue en el tercio medio, proximo al tercio distal; en la ulna y el radio los foramenes estaban presentes en el tercio medio, proximo al tercio proximal.
