The inter-tubercular (bicipital) groove looks forward, and lies in a line drawn vertically through the biceps muscle.
There is no bicipital groove, and the tuberosities coalesce.
Its tendon, which is highly developed in the solipeds, occupies the bicipital groove.
The great tuberosity is always large and often overhangs the bicipital groove, it is especially large in Titanotherium (Brontops).
In some instances lameness is mixed as in joint ailments, involvement of the bicipital bursa (bursa intertubercularis), etc.
It corresponds almost exactly to the bicipital groove, and has the advantage of avoiding the great vessels and nerves.
Chronic inflammation of the bicipital bursa is occasionally met with wherein both members are affected.
