Radial Nerve Innervation of the Brachialis Muscle in the Ghanaian Population

SUMMARY Background. The dual innervation of the brachialis muscle by musculocutaneous and radial nerves has been described and adopted, despite being traditionally known to have singular innervation as other flexors in the anterior compartment of the arm. However, the prevalence, course and patterns of distribution of its radial innervation varies in different population, and in the Ghanaian population, no … Continued

Intermuscular Connections in Anterior Brachium: its Implications in Radial Nerve Entrapment Neuropathy

SUMMARY Background. Radial nerve (RN) is the largest branch arising from the brachial plexus, which supplies the extensor muscles and skin. This nerve may go for entrapment anywhere in its course. Muscular and tendinous variations have been implicated in various nerve entrapment syndromes along with other causes. The goal of this investigation was to observe … Continued
