Of all the study patients with cuts, 39 sustained trauma to the median nerve, 28 to the ulnar nerve
and only in one case the radial nerve was affected.
Rubbing alcohol was used to clean the skin before applying the electrodes over the median or ulnar nerve
Medial elbow pain coupled with parasthesias of the 4th and 5th digits is characteristic of cubital tunnel syndrome or ulnar nerve
The original orthopedic surgeon examined the child when she was 7 years old and determined that the flexor carpi ulnaris tendon had been completely severed with a partial injury to the ulnar nerve
Ultrasound examination identified a traumatic neuroma just before the ulnar nerve
branched into sensory termini and excluded neurotmesis.
Compression, traction, and subluxation/ dislocation of the ulnar nerve
at the cubital tunnel during prolonged elbow flexion or repetitive elbow flexion and extension are associated with the pathomechanics of UNEE.

But entrapment of the ulnar nerve
or the radial nerve, both of which run from the neck to the wrist and hand, also is very common.
Aetiologies of ulnar nerve
compression at the wrist include ganglia, fractures, anomalous muscles, thrombosis, bursitis, a thick pisohamate ligament and lipomas.
It is commonly caused by tennis elbow, ulnar nerve
injury, bursitis, and arthritis.
In order to administer anesthesia, the patient's right arm was secured to a padded arm board attached to the operating table and wrapped with a gel Pad to protect the ulnar nerve
The ulnar nerve
controls the feeling in your little finger, your ring finger and the back of your hand.
