Humerus: The humerus is a long bone that is located in the upper arm. There is one humerus in each arm, and they form a part of the appendicular skeleton. The humerus articulates with the scapula to make the shoulder joint and the radius and the ulna to create the elbow joint. The functions of the humerus include supporting movement of the extremities, creating insertion points for muscles, producing blood cells in bone marrow, and storing some minerals, such as calcium and phosphorus.
Conditions that can afflict the humerus include infection, trauma, fracture, bone cancer, leukemia, osteoporosis, osteomyelitis and dislocations.
