Description

The humerus is the longest and largest bone of the upper extremity that runs from the shoulder to the elbow.

As well as its true anatomical neck, the constriction below the greater and lesser tubercles of the humerus is referred to as its surgical neck due to its tendency to commonly get fractured, thus often becoming the focus of surgeons.
