Example text

5 Martin-Gruber and Riche-Cannieu Anastomoses As mentioned in Chapter 1, the median and ulnar nerves may communicate with each other in the forearm via the anterior interosseus nerve (MartinGruber anastomosis). A second communication may occur in the deep palm between the thenar motor branch of the median nerve and the deep motor division of the ulnar nerve (Riche-Cannieu anastomosis). Minor and major shifts in motor innervation of the hand may occur through these two potential routes of communication.

Clinically, this entrapment has been reported to cause insidious onset of forearm and hand weakness, with variable sensory loss in a median distribution. A deep aching pain is often present in the proximal forearm, which occasionally worsens with repetitive pronation/supination, or during strength testing of the pronator teres or flexor carpi radialis. On examination, weakness, and even muscle wasting, may occur in any median nerve–innervated muscle. 15 - 10:25 Median Nerve median nerve passes under the ligament of Struthers.

The flexor carpi ulnaris tendon and the more distal pisiform bone (first bump in the wall described earlier) form the proximal, medial wall of the tunnel. In the distal half of the tunnel, the lateral wall is formed by the hook of the hamate (second bump in the wall described previously), whereas the shorter medial wall is formed by the pisiform bone. The distal floor is formed initially by the pisohamate ligament, then by the pisometacarpal ligament. The ulnar nerve passes superficial to both of these ligaments.
