Answer

Ulnar compression [37] in the medial epicondylar region is generally from a valgus deformity of the bone. If a patient is placed in standard anatomic position with the palms rotated toward the front and the thumb away from the midline, a valgus deformity means that the elbow would be deformed away from midline of the body.
