Humérus - Humerus


The humerus is the only bone of the skeleton of the arm (thoracic stylopodium).

It is composed by three basic segments:

  • The proximal extremity, articulating with the scapula and bearing the head and the major and lesser tubercles
  • The body (shaft) bearing the deltoid tuberosity
  • The distal extremity bearing the humeral condyle and articulating with the radius and ulna
