CADAVERIC STUDY OF COMMUNICATION BETWEEN MEDIAN AND MUSCULOCUTANEOUS NERVE
Author: Soma Sekhar R., Raju Sugavasi
Background: Communications between the branches of brachial plexus is a common phenomenon and it has several clinical and surgical implications. The knowledge of communications between musculocutaneous and median nerves is also important in the anterior approach for the fracture of the humerus and regional nerve blocks
Methods: Cadaveric study was carried out on 100 upper limbs by using 50 embalmed cadavers to find out the communication between median and musculocutaneous nerve
Results: out of 100 upperlimbs, the variation was found in 2 specimens.
Conclusion: The occurrence of such type of communication is clinically important for surgeons and anesthetists to perform pain management Therapies in related to the upper limb.
Keywords: Median nerve, Musculocutaneous nerve, Communication
