Nerve injury is a common complication during anterior shoulder surgery. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the musculocutaneous nerve (MN) anatomically and to clarify the relationship of the MN to the glenoid labrum and coracoid process in different arm positions. The study was carried out on 40 shoulders of 20 adult cadavers fixed in 10% formaldehyde. The minimum distance of the MN at the entrance point of the nerve into the coracobrachialis to the anteromedial aspect of the coracoid tip… CONTINUE READING
