Tests revealed a rupture of the extensor carpi ulnaris tendon, but Cruz reported feeling no pain in the wrist on Friday.
A cadaver study also demonstrated that, in the absence of MCL contribution, the flexor carpi ulnaris and flexor digitorum superficialis are additional dynamic contributors to valgus stability of the elbow.
For the ulnar nerve, stimulation is given at the wrist (Medial/lateral to flexor carpi ulnaris) and at the elbow (Ulnar groove) and recording electrode is kept close to the motor point of the abductor digiti minimi (ADM).

Electrical stimulation of the ulnar nerve was done proximal to the active recording electrode at the wrist crease just lateral to the flexor carpi ulnaris tendon.
Motor and sensory conduction studies of the ulnar, median, radial and dorsal ulnar cutaneous (DUC) nerves of right hand and electromyography (EMG) of the abductor digiti minimi (ADM), flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU), flexor digitorum profundus (FDP), abductor pollicis brevis (APB), extensor indicis proprius (EIP), cervical 8 (C8) and thoracal 1 ([T.sub.1]) paraspinal muscles were performed to exclude lower brachial plexopathy or C8-T1 radiculopathy.
Flexor carpi ulnaris muscle (FCUM) is an important muscle in the forearm belonging to the anterior flexor compartment, and it provides strength to wrist flexion and ulnar adduction.
The following muscles were targeted for injection; Flexor digitorum superficialis, Flexor digitorum profundus, Flexor carpi ulnaris, Flexor carpi radialis, Brachialis, Biceps brachii, Triceps brachii, Extensor pollicis longus and Flexor pollicis Longus muscle, depending upon the type of focal dystonia.
The site of stimulation was at palmer aspect of the wrist just medial or lateral to the flexor carpi ulnaris tendon and slightly above the ulnar groove at the elbow.
They were subcutaneously tunneled to the following target muscles: adductor pollicis (AP), abductor pollicis longus (APL), flexor digitorum profundus (FDP), and extensor digitorum communis (EDC) for hand muscles; flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU), and extensor carpi radialis (ECR) for wrist muscles; brachioradialis (BRA) and triceps lateral head (TRA) for elbow muscles; biceps long head (BIL) and triceps long head (TRO) for shoulder-elbow double joint muscles; and pectoralis major clavicular head (PECM) and deltoid clavicular part (DELP) for shoulder muscles.
