The oblique cord (oblique ligament) is a small, flattened band, extending downward and lateralward, from the lateral side of the tubercle of the ulna at the base of the coronoid process to the radius a little below the radial tuberosity.
Its fibers run in the opposite direction to those of the interosseous membrane.
It is sometimes wanting.
