Abstract

The nerve anatomy of the upper extremity is studied constantly through surgical findings, electrodiagnostic studies, and cadaveric dissections. Although it is recognized that the anatomy is not changing rapidly, knowledge of the anatomic relationships and their significance is increasing. The purpose of the current study is to provide a comprehensive analysis of the nerve anatomy of the upper extremity to include innervation patterns, critical landmarks, and clinical applications, with particular focus on recent contributions in the literature.
