Example text

To the anterior interosseous nerve, along with the sensory fibers destined for the first two digits, are located posteriorly in the median nerve, and are prone to injury as it passes through the supracondylar region. When a patient has isolated anterior interosseous motor loss secondary to partial median nerve damage in the supracondylar region (not to the anterior interosseous branch), it is indicative of pseudo-anterior interosseous neuropathy. This more proximal damage also causes thumb and index finger numbness, which helps differentiate this injury from a true anterior interosseous neuropathy.

32 The deep motor division gives a small motor branch to the hypothenar eminence just before diving into the pisohamate hiatus. This branch innervates the three muscles of the hypothenar eminence: the abductor digiti minimi, flexor digiti minimi, and the opponens digiti minimi. The abductor digiti minimi (C8, T1) is tested when the patient abducts the fifth digit against resistance (Fig. 2–13). One should keep in mind that this muscle is delicate, with even normal strength being easily overcome.

Other points of possible ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow include between the two heads of the flexor carpi ulnaris (cubital tunnel syndrome) and by Osborne’s fascia, when present. Clinical Findings and Syndromes Ru_Ch02 ♦ Tardive ulnar palsy refers to a person with late-onset ulnar nerve compression at the elbow following an elbow fracture years earlier. In these patients, the fracture causes a capitus valgus deformity at the elbow (with the elbow extended, the forearm is not straight in relation to the 43 Chapter 2 The Diagnostic Anatomy of the Ulnar Nerve Ru_Ch02 6/24/06 11:48 AM Page 44 humerus, but instead angles laterally).
