The distribution of the DBRN within forearms possessing single or double tendons of the El muscle is investigated and its clinical significance is discussed.
In consideration of the clinical importance of the distri bution of the DBRN, we dissected 32 upper limbs to determine whether the branching pattern of the DBRN var ied between the forearms possessing single versus double tendons of El.
The DBRN traversed the supinator muscle between the superficial and deep layers, emerging in the posterior compartment deep to the superficial layer of the extensor muscles, immediately providing the short branches to the ED, extensor digiti minimi, and extensor carpi ulnaris muscles.
According to our observation, the DBRN after emerging from the supinator gives off short branches to the superficial extensor muscles.
In our study, the innervation of the deep extensor muscles is supplied by the long branches of the DBRN, including the nerve to the APL, nerve to the EPB, and the PIN.
Thus, we conclude that there are no differences in the branching pattern of the DBRN within forearms possessing either single or double tendons of EL In both cases, having longer branches to APL and EPL allow for the possibility of isolated neuropathy of these branches.
