Hello:

I am looking for information about dimensions of the distal human humerus,
both size of the bone and also ligament origin or insertion near the elbow
joint. I have heard that data bases of CT Scan data or possibly
cadaveric measurements may be available on the internet and I thought
someone may be able to point me in the right direction.

As part of an undergraduate Mechanical Engineering course in
biomechanical design, my group is designing a new humeral stem for a
semi-constrained elbow implant for cases of severely deficient bone stock.
Specific dimensions of the humerus are desirable if available, but any
pertinent information is welcome.

Thank you,
Nicole Baker
