The other most common entrapment sites may include the ulnar nerve at the wrist (Guyon's canal), the superficial radial nerve in the distal forearm, the peroneal nerve entrapment at the fibular neck, and the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve
at the inguinal ligament (meralgia paresthetica) (10).
Aizawa reported that the medial cutaneous nerve
branch and the adductor longus branches were the first two branches to leave the femoral nerve in the thigh .
The investigators noted three cases of transient lateral antebrachial cutaneous nerve
symptoms, which resolved; no instances of posterior interosseous nerve injury were seen.
Key Words: Lateral antebrachial cutaneous nerve
, neuropathy, malingering
To ensure that a radial forearm free flap is sensate, the medial or lateral antebrachial cutaneous nerve
must be anastomosed to the glossopharyngeal or greater palatine nerve.
The lateral antebrachial cutaneous nerve
runs superficially between the biceps and brachialis muscle (Fig.
One patient presented with new onset dysaesthesia in the distribution of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve
of the opposite leg after hip replacement surgery and was excluded from further analysis.
Therapy Plus is a hand-held, mechanical cutaneous nerve
stimulator for the relief of pain.
In contrast to the infraclavicular block, because the musculocutaneous nerve separates from the remainder of the brachial plexus above the axilla (eventually, to become the anterolateral cutaneous nerve
at the level of the forearm), a separate injection of this nerve is necessary if the surgery involves its sensory distribution (the lateral aspect of the forearm down to the wrist).
Twelve hours later the patient demonstrated complete femoral, obturator and sciatic nerve blockade (including motor block) (the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve
was not involved).
The medial brachial cutaneous nerve
innervates the skin of the posteromedial arm down to the level of the olecranon.
When performing an interscalene block, the dermatomes of the lower trunk may be missed (ulnar nerve, medial cutaneous nerve
of forearm and medial cutaneous nerve
