Nerves

Median Nerve

The Median Nerve is one of the five nerves that emerges from brachial plexus in axilla by two roots: (a) lateral and (b) medial. The lateral root (C5, C6, and C7) emerges from lateral cord of brachial plexus and the medial root (C8 and T1) emerges from

Ulnar Nerve

The Ulnar Nerve grows within the axilla from the medial cord of brachial plexus (C8 and Tl). The ventral ramus of C7 contributes to the ulnar nerve. The C7 fibers in the ulnar nerve supply flexor carpi ulnaris. Course of Ulnar Nerve Axilla The nerve lies medial

Brachial Plexus

The Brachial plexus is a plexus of nerves which is made up of the C4, C5, C6, C7, C8 and T1 spinal nerves. The C4 to C8 spinal nerves are the anterior (ventral) rami of the lower four cervicals and T1 is the first thoracic nerve. The

Nerves of Upper Limb

The nerve supply to the upper limb is provided by the brachial plexus. The five major nerves supplying the upper limb are: Axillary nerve. Musculocutaneous nerve. Radial nerve. Median nerve. Ulnar nerve. The study of five major nerves of the upper limb should be studied thoroughly and

Axillary Nerve

The Axillary Nerve is a major peripheral nerve of the upper limb that originates from the brachial plexus. Type: mixed sensory and motor nerve. Origin: it emerges from the posterior cord of the brachial plexus. Course:it passes through the quadrangular space with the posterior circumflex humeral artery.
