In this study, we retrospectively reviewed long-term alterations in elbow range of motion (ROM) and functional outcomes of patients who underwent anterior subcutaneous transposition of the ulnar
nerve for cubital tunnel syndrome.
01) negative correlation with the conduction velocities of all sensory nerves except ulnar
There are 5 anatomic sites of ulnar
nerve compromise at the elbow: (1) intermuscular (IM) septum of the distal arm (including the Areade of Struthers, medial IM septum, hypertrophy of medial head of triceps brachii, and snapping of medial head triceps brachii); (2) medial epicondylc secondary to a valgus deformity of the bone; (3) epicondylar groove (lesions within and outside of the groove and subluxation or dislocation of the nerve); (4) cubital tunnel (due to a thickened Osborne's ligament, a fibrous fascia running between the humeral and ulnar
heads to the FCU) or as the nerve passes through the proximal edge of the FCU; and (5) as the ulnar
nerve exits through the FCU.
The comparative evaluation of the recordings from the second lumbrical muscles for median distal motor latencies and ulnar
distal motor latencies obtained from the interosseous muscles is another technique assessing the sensitivity of motor NCS.
Nerve conduction velocity of the above elbow segment was >10 m/s slower than the below elbow segment of the ulnar
His nerve conduction study suggested a left ulnar
axonal neuropathy, at the elbow joint.
The most common associated bony type of distal radioulnar injury is avulsion of the ulnar
2 patients had postoperative ulnar
nerve paresis in the form of tingling, numbness sensation along the ulnar
nerve distribution, which was managed conservatively and complete recovery took place within 6 months.

artery joined with the large first dorsal interosseal artery to form the SPA and supplied thumb and index finger in 8% of cases among 86 dissected cadaveric specimens, [sup] whereas in our case, it does not supply the index finger.
The significant improvement in ulnar
drift that occurred in patients who underwent SMPA versus no surgery remained even after adjustment for baseline severity, age, sex, and use of biologics.
Motor exam of intrinsic musculature innervated by the recurrent motor branch of the median nerve includes assessment of thumb abduction strength (assessed by applying resistance to the metacarpophalangeal joint [MCPJ] base towards the palm in the position of maximal abduction) and opposition strength (assessed by applying force to the MCPJ from the ulnar
