Ulna

The ulna is the inner and longer bone of the forearm, which is also referred to as the 'lower-arm'.

It articulates with the humerus and radius bones at the upper (strictly the 'proximal') end of the ulna, and with the radius at the lower ('distal') end of the ulna.

The location of the ulna is indicated in the diagram.

For more information about the adjacent bones see hand bones and arm bones.
