BACKGROUND We aimed to determine the presence of median and ulnar nerve communication in the forearm by anatomical and electrophysiological examinations in the Anatolian population. MATERIAL/METHODS 30 forearms from 15 preserved cadavers (2 females, 13 males, 42-65 years of age) were carefully dissected to observe median and ulnar nerve communication. We also performed median and ulnar nerve motor conduction studies by recording the thenar, hypothenar and first dorsal interosseous (FDI… CONTINUE READING
