antérieur


Explanation:
volar (adj): qui se rapporte à la face antérieure

'volar surface of ulna' = 'face antérieure du cubitus'

Donc, j'imagine que vu le contexte, il s'agit de l'arrière du genou...

faces intérieure et postérieure


Explanation:
oups... Toute réflexion faite, par recoupement avec "volar: Of or pertaining to the palm of the hand or the sole of the foot." il s'agit peut-être plutôt de la face "intérieure", c'est-à-dire le côté (intérieur). À voir dans le contexte.

Voir figure 1 et 2 de la référence antérieure (juste si tu y tiens vraiment!)
