Abstract

Compression of the ulnar nerve can be understood in terms of the anatomic and dynamic factors. Although the ulnar nerve may be compressed at any point along its course, it is particularly susceptible at the elbow and at the wrist. Clinically relevant anatomy will be reviewed in an attempt to provide the reader with a logical framework for successfully diagnosing and managing typical and atypical ulnar nerve compression lesions.
