        On the Cover: When the elbow is placed in the supine-suspended position for elbow arthroscopy, the standard anterior portals used to access the lateral side of this right elbow are easily visualized. The arm is secured across the patient's chest using a mechanical arm holder. The standard lateral portals include the proximal anterolateral portal (PALP), midanterolateral portal (MALP), and the anterolateral portal (ALP).
