humerus -anatomical neck 
Lateral side of distal humerusand articulation point for thehead of the radius.
humerus -coronoid fossa
Anterior fossa just above thetrochlea for coronoid processof ulna to articulate withduring full flexion of the elbow
humerus -deltoidtuberosity
Lateral tuberosity wheredeltoid inserts, approximatelyat the midpoint of thehumerus.
humerus -greater tubercle
3 of 4 rotator cuff muscletendons insert here—supraspinatus, infraspinatus,and teres minorArticulate with glenoid fossa.Directed upward, medially,and posteriorly
humerus –intertubercular(bicipital) sulcushumerus -lateralepicondyle
Point of origin for extensors(including supinator), oftencalled the common extensororigin The common extensor origin is the site of pain in individuals lateral epicondylitis(commonly called “tennis elbow”). It isthought to primarily be a chronic overuseinjury with any motions causing repetitivewrist extension and/or forearm supination.Pain is often worst 1-2 cm distal to thelateral epicondyle.
humerus - lessertubercle
Projects anteriorly fromhumerus, insertion site for thesubscapularis muscle of therotator cuff 
humerus -medialepicondyle
Point of origin for flexors andpronator teres. Ulnar nerveruns in a groove behind thisstructureMedial epicondylitis (commonly called“little league elbow” or “golfer’s elbow”) isdue to repetitive motions causing wristflexion and/or forearm pronation.
humerus -olecranon fossa

humerus -trochlea
Spool-shaped or pulley-like;articulates with proximal end(trochlear notch) of ulnaused to take blood pressure readings. It ispalpated and traced to the cubital fossa,and the bell of the stethoscope is placedover this spotPICC lines (peripherally inserted centralcatheters) are one way of administeringchemotherapy, iv nutrition (TPN), and long-term antibiotics.
