Based on the clinical and histopathological examination, a final diagnosis of Nevus lipomatosus cutaneous superficialis was made.
We used a four-channel EMG device (ME3000P8 muscle tester, Mega Electronics Ltd, Finland) for recording simultaneously four muscle groups; extensor carpi radialis, palmaris longus, pronator quadratus, flexor digitorum superficialis.
During the electromyography evaluation, comparison of the RMS records in the different evaluations only showed statistically significant data for the flexor digitorum superficialis muscle, which is innervated by the median nerve.
22) Likewise, resistance of the long finger proximal interphalangeal joint (IPJ) to flexion--a maneuver performed with elbow fully extended--assesses compression from the fibrous arcade of the flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS).
When the course of the variant artery in the midline of the forearm is superficial to the above-described one, it should be termed the superficial median artery (ACNM superficialis [ACNMS]).
68) To restore thumb extensor function, tendon transfers using the extensor indicis proprius (EIP), flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS), brachioradialis, or extensor carpi radialis longus (ECRL) can be used.
Flexor digitorum superficialis partially resected; PL: palmaris longus; FPL: flexor pollicis longus; M: median nerve; FDP: flexor digitorum profundus.
Flexor tendon of each digit passes through a fibro- osseous tunnel/sheath to reach its distal attachment, the middle phalanx in case of superficialis tendon and distal phalanx for the profundus tendon.
pseudotemporalis superficialis (Psd s) (Figure 2) is multipinulated and trilobed in shape (three oval portions in each component).
4,14) On its course from the cubital fossa to the medial side of the forearm midway between the elbow and wrist, the SUA descended superficial to the pronator teres, flexor digitor um superficialis and flexor carpi radialis muscles (Figure 1A).
Toldt7, an anatomist, in an article cited by Gillies 1923 was the first to illustrate and name the vessel arteria cervicalis superficialis which originated as a branch of thyrocervical trunk.
