ulnar nerve block
injection of a local anesthetic in the caudal aspect of the forelimb, proximal to the carpus, produces anesthesia on the anterolateral aspect of the metacarpus.

The sheath of FCR is dissected through and the FCR tendon retracted ulnarly.
The remaining tendon is then passed deep to the APL tendon and brought ulnarly to pass deep to the other half of the unharvested FCR tendon.
Perhaps typists pronate less and deviate ulnarly more with the left upper extremity than the right because they have to type more characters or special keys, such as the tab, with their left little finger than their right little finger, and it is easier to type these keys with reduced pronation and greater ulnar deviation.
Nakamura and colleagues (2) point out that the UCL, which is a thickened joint capsule ulnarly, did not have strong attachments to the ulnar styloid, while the ECU subsheath had a firm connection to the ulnar fovea.
The TFCC also extends the gliding surface of the radius ulnarly for carpal motion and stabilizes the ulnar carpus.
On average the participants tended to place their left wrists in a mean position that was approximately 5[degrees] more ulnarly deviated than the position of their right wrists (15.
The greater mean ulnar deviation of the left wrist (a 5[degrees] difference in our participants) generally agrees with the results of Hedge and Powers (1995), who found that participants ulnarly deviated their left wrists 2[degrees] more than their right wrists (15[degrees]-13[degrees] ulnar deviation for left and right wrists, respectively) when they typed on conventional keyboards.
0 cm distal to Lister's tubercle; it is bordered radially by the EPL and ulnarly by the extensor digitorum communis (EDC).
As described by Cailliet (1982), during radial deviation, the capitate glides ulnarly and toward the proximal row, creating a "packing" effect of the carpal bones.
The nonconstrained, ellipsoidal articulation is offset ulnarly and palmarly and designed to duplicate flexion-extension and radial-ulnar deviation of the native wrist.
0396 (lab 21 [degrees] /s, supermarket 29 [degrees] /s), and average velocity when radially and ulnarly deviating the wrist, F(1,17) = 6.
A further criticism of distal ulna resection is that it may contribute to ulnar translocation of the carpus by removing the bony support ulnarly.
