|Ligament: Radial collateral ligament (elbow)|
|Left elbow-joint, showing posterior and radial collateral ligaments. (Radial collateral ligament visible near center.)|
|Latin||ligamentum collaterale radiale|
|Gray's||subject #84 322|
|From||lateral epicondyle of the humerus|
The radial collateral ligament (external lateral ligament) is a short and narrow fibrous band, less distinct than the ulnar collateral, attached, above, to a depression below the lateral epicondyle of the humerus; below, to the annular ligament, some of its most posterior fibers passing over that ligament, to be inserted into the lateral margin of the ulna.
It is intimately blended with the tendon of origin of the Supinator.
