Abstract :

 

The radial nerve is continuation of the posterior cord of the achial plexus. Variation in the anching pattern of the posterior cord of the achial plexus is common but variation in the anching pattern of the radial nerve is rare. A rare and unreported variation in the anching pattern of the radial nerve was noted in the left cubital fossa of an embalmed male cadaver during routine gross dissection. After division of radial nerve, the superficial anch enter in the forearm region by piercing between achioradialis and extensor carpi radialis longus in front of the lateral epicondyle and deep anch goes deep to supinator and wind around head of the radius. However, this present report demonstrates that the radial nerve lies posterior to the lateral epicondyle. The present report can be useful for pain managing therapists as well as surgeons dealing with nerve entrapment or compressive neuropathies and reconstructive surgeries and anaesthetists for ultrasonic pain therapy.
