Victor Horsley, in 1887, is credited to be the ﬁrst surgeon to remove such a tumor; however, the association to sciatica was not recognized. In fact, the ﬁrst successful removal of a herniated disk took place in 1901 via laminectomy under the hands of Fedor Krause (1857–1937) (Fig. 7) and Hermann Oppenheim. They removed what they had thought was an “enchondroma” . And the evidence continued to mount. It wasn’t until 1911 when Joel Goldthwaite (1866–1961), building upon Middleton and Teacher’s work of the same year, conceived the hypothesis that there existed a precise correlation between herniated disk and sciatic pain.
It is particular to Paninae in that it is, literally, triangular, and as it has insertions bored into it by the coracobrachialis, the ﬂexor of the humerus over the scapula and by the biceps brachii caput breve, the ﬂexor of the radius over the humerus. From these observations it can be hypothesized that Australopithecines used this structure of the upper limbs for the arboreal part of its locomotor repertoire. The humerus is not long, measuring about a mere 23 cm. Its head is rounded, like a “half ball,” and slightly elongated vertically; its anatomical neck is very pronounced, almost as much as that in a chimpanzee; its very long tuberculum minus is prominent above the bicipital groove, and as it bears an important insertion of the subscapularis muscle, it can be presumed that the internal arm rotational movements and humerus adduction over the scapula were developed.
