Forrest found that the opponens
pollicis had double motor innervation in 20% of his cases, while Sala found it in one third of his cases.
The hook serves as a site of attachment of several structures including the flexor digiti minimi, opponens
digiti minimi, pisiohamate ligaments, and distal portion of the transverse carpal ligament.
Further, noxious heat applied to the lateral edge of the hand reduced the MEPs of FDI and opponens
pollicis muscles .
(13,14) Apart from this branch, the bulk of the ulnar nerve passes through the ulnar canal (Guyon's canal) at the wrist and divides into a superficial branch which provides motor innervation to the palmaris brevis and skin sensation to the palmar surface of D5 and medial half of D4.1314 The deep motor branch of the ulnar nerve then innervates the hypothenar muscles (abductor digiti minimi, flexor digiti minimi, and opponens
digiti minimi), lumbricale muscles to D4 and D5, and the ulnar intrinsics including the dorsal and palmar interassei and adductor pollicis.
The long opponens
thumb spica splint is commonly used; it immobilizes the wrist and CMC, while leaving the thumb interphalangeal joint free.
claim that these kinds of scientific facts are not true.
The following muscles and functions were tested when possible, and an average integer was reported per patient for hand and/or foot function: hand grip, opponens
pollicis (opposes thumb), abductor pollicis brevis (abducts the thumb), adductor pollicis (adducts the thumb), opponens
digiti minimi (opposes the little finger), abductor digiti minimi (abducts the little finger), third palmar interossei (adducts the little finger), foot dorsiflexion and plantar flexion.

Power of dorsal and palmar interosseous, flexor digiti minimi, opponens
digiti minimi were reduced.
(4) The opponens
pollicis is deeper and more radial and inserts along the radial aspect of the thumb metacarpal and functions more to flex the first metacarpal, aiding the APB in opposition.

At further stages of the condition, in situations when the nerve experiences severe compression, in thenar region pain and power and skill loss arise in hands and tenar region (in abductor pollisis brevis and opponens
brevis muscles innervated by motor branch of median nerve) atrophy is seen.
