Assessment of morphology of ulnar nerve in the human axilla & arm and to study its variations


Dr. Hema Narayan, Dr. Suman Kumar

The ulnar nerve is a major peripheral nerve of the upper limb. In this article, we shall look at the applied anatomy of the nerve – its anatomical course, motor functions and cutaneous innervation. We shall also consider the clinical correlations of damage to the ulnar nerve. The current study was planned on total 30 embalmed human cadavers in males as well as female sexes. The cadavers are of received from Department of Anatomy from Vardhman Institute of Medical Sciences Pawapuri. The upper limb of the specimens was dissected as per the guidelines in the Cunningham Practical Manual. Thus the awareness of these variations along the normal pattern are helpful for the interventional radiologists, orthopaedicians and neurologists in preventing untoward iatrogenic injury to the ulnar nerve during radiological procedures or operating on fractured patients or diagnostic therapy.
