A non-articular strip is placed transversely in the trochlear notch of human ulna which divides the articular surface of trochlea into proximal and distal parts. Strips are covered in the fresh specimen and in life by a pannus of synovial membrane containing a little fat. Brash (1951) described that at the junction of union between the olecranon and coronoid process rough patches might be seen on the side which might strip around the floor of the trochlear notch. Hollinshead (1958) stated that the articular notch is sometimes completely interrupted at this level by a nonarticula strip. Warwick and Williams (1973) cited that olecranon and coronoid processes might be completely separated by a roughened narrow strip. Breathnach (1960) observed that a groove (strip) crosses the floor of the description of the groove or strip in the trochlear notch of ulna is available in the Grantâ€™s Text Book of Anatomy. The present study has been undertaken to observe the non-articular strips and their variation in the trochlear notch of human ulna, in both the dissected cadavers and ulnae of skeletal remains.
