CU: ARTERIA COLATERAL CUBITAL. BS: ARTERIA BRAQUIAL SUPERFICIAL.
Ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow, generally defined as cubital tunnel syndrome, represents the second most common compression neuropathy of the upper extremity.[1],[2],[3] Etiology varies from either static factors due to bony and soft-tissue disorders (including osteoarthritis, cubitus valgus, ganglion, tumor, facial strictures, or accessory muscle) or dynamic components, such as minor repetitive injury secondary to increasing pressure within the cubital canal during elbow flexion or subluxation of the ulnar nerve.[2],[4],[5],[6]
The axilla and the arm were dissected to expose brachial plexus & musculocutaneous nerve from origin up to cubital fossa.
In this study, the entrapments in the medial epicondyle distal were considered as HUA lesions (cubital tunnel syndrome), which was the terminology used by Campbell (14).
I'm talking about things like compressive neuropathies such as carpal and cubital tunnel syndromes, neck strain, eyestrain (if not full-blown computer vision syndrome), back pain, headaches and other problems that, at their most severe, have resulted in prolonged absences or even reluctant early retirement.
Anatomically, the BrA is the radial artery (arteria radialis, RA), featuring a "high origin", which means that the RA originates not as a terminal branch of the brachial artery (arteria brachialis, BA) by bifurcation within the cubital fossa (fossa cubitalis), but more proximal, either from the BA anywhere along the course of the arm, or directly from the axillary artery (arteria axillaris, AA).
CardioFlex successfully treats all levels of arm injuries, including finger, wrist, and elbow fractures, tendonitis, bursitis, tenosynovitis, bone breaks, ORIF fracture surgeries, bicpes tears, muscles tears, strains, sprains, DeQuervain's Syndrome, cartilage damage, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, carpal tunnel, radial & ulnar nerve impingement, dislocated fingers, wrist, & elbows, cubital tunnel, triceps tears, nerve damage, peripheral neuropathy, neurological conditions, neuro disorders, cysts, contractures, and pre & post surgical patients.
It terminates in the cubital fossa into radial & ulnar arteries.
The operative notes stated that there was an abscess, 5 cm by 3 cm, soft to firm in consistency, extending for up to 5 cm along the ulnar nerve proximally from the cubital tunnel.
