This procedure is simpler to perform than deep transpositions, and it is warranted to ensure thorough release; all possible constriction sites must be double checked with careful dissection to protect the vascular bundles of the ulnar nerve and to preserve the motor branches to the flexor carpi ulnaris and flexor digitorum profundus [Figure 3].
We rated the severity of protozoal infection in the following manner: we removed a 2 x 1 x 1 cm section of muscle from the cranioventral flexor carpi ulnaris muscle, where the parasites were most commonly observed on gross examination, and placed it in formalin.
In the forearm, the first musclc innervated by the ulnar nerve is the flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU) followed by the ulnar half (ring and little finger) of the flexor digitorum profundus (FDP D4-D5).
The bird was restrained in dorsal recumbency, the wing was spread a part and after cleansing the sampling site with an antiseptic, the blood samples were drawn through basilica vein (venacutanea ulnaris superficialis) in the disposable syringe, using the safety clothes and gloves to avoid any contamination (Samour et al.
During the B-mode ultrasonography examination, increased diffuse homogenous echogenicity was observed in the flexor carpi radialis and flexor carpi ulnaris muscles (Figure 1).
A 5 mL volume of venous blood was collected from the ulnaris vein in the wing of one bird taken from each replicate.
Fascia of flexor carpi ulnaris was incised and splitting of underlying ligament was done.
Below the medial epicondyle between flexor carpi ulnaris and flexor digitorum profundus.
0 cm from the radiocapitellar joint, at which point it provides branches to extensor digitorum communis (EDC), extensor digiti mimimi (EDM), and extensor carpi ulnaris (ECU).
Distal stimulation was given 3 cm proximal to distal wrist crease just medial to the flexor carpi ulnaris tendon.
Motor examination of the ulnar nerve primarily focuses on the intrinsic muscles detailed in TABLE 3, (27-32) although the flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU) and flexor digitorum profundus (FDP) to the ring finger and small finger are also innervated by the ulnar nerve.
Incision was made through the deep fascia to the Extensor Carpi Ulnaris (ECU) and Extensor Digiti Minimi (EDM) muscles.
