Complex Upper Limb Anatomy

11 months ago

Case description

The speaker is Tom Cosker, head of anatomy for the University and a consultant orthopedic oncology surgeon at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Center. The lecture covers key points on upper limb anatomy that could appear in the frcs examination. Nerve supply to muscles in the upper limb includes the suprascapular nerve for supraspinatus and infraspinatus, the axillary nerve for deltoid and teres minor, and the musculocutaneous nerve for biceps, brachialis, and coracobrachialis. Finger flexion and extension are supplied by intrinsic muscles of the fingers and hand as well as the long faces extensors, supplied by all three major nerves: radial, median, and ulnar nerves. The brachial plexus includes roots (C5 to T1), trunks (upper, middle, and lower), divisions (anterior and posterior), cords (lateral, posterior, and medial), and terminal branches. An easy way to identify the parts of the brachial plexus is to look for the letter M lying on the axillary artery, which represents the median nerve.
