Example text

The lateral leg of the letter M is the musculocutaneous nerve; the medial leg is the ulnar nerve. The center, V-shaped convergence is the lateral and medial cords merging to become the median nerve. 15 - 10:25 Ulnar Nerve Fig. 2 Course of the medial brachial and antebrachial cutaneous nerves. Before the medial cord becomes the ulnar nerve, it yields two important sensory branches, the medial brachial cutaneous and the medial antebrachial cutaneous nerves, which innervate the medial half of the arm and forearm, respectively.

The mobility of the ulnar nerve changes as it passes down the medial arm. When anterior to the intermuscular septum in the upper half of the arm the ulnar nerve is mobile. However, it subsequently becomes immobilized in the lower half of the arm by being embedded in the triceps muscle, and under the arcade of Struthers, when present. The ulnar nerve becomes once again mobile just proximal to the postcondylar groove of the elbow. ⬧ In many individuals, there is a C7 contribution to the ulnar nerve, which originates from the lateral cord.

First, while the patient abducts the fifth digit, observe and palpate the flexor carpi ulnaris tendon just proximal to the wrist (▶ Fig. 9). The flexor carpi ulnaris contracts to stabilize the pisiform so that the abductor digiti minimi may abduct the fifth digit. Next, have the patient flex the wrist against resistance in an ulnar direction (▶ Fig. 10), which is the primary action of this muscle. Fig. 9 Flexor carpi ulnaris (C7, T1) assessment, stabilizing the pisiform: While the patient abducts the ipsilateral fifth digit, observe and palpate the flexor carpi ulnaris tendon just proximal to the wrist.
