OBJECT Sensation in the palmar surface of the digits is supplied by the median and ulnar nerves, with the boundary classically being the midline of the ring finger. Overlap and variations of this division exist, and a communicating branch between the ulnar and median nerve could potentially explain further variations in digital sensory innervations. The aim of this study was to examine the origin and distribution of the communicating branch between the ulnar and median nerves and to apply such… CONTINUE READING
