The total number of studies reporting the grading of postoperative muscle strength with the musculocutaneous nerve
used as the recipient nerve was nine, and the pooled sample size was 95.
There were no statistically significant differences for the musculocutaneous nerve
, median nerve and ulnar nerve.
From a peripheral nerve standpoint, the pain pattern outlined above would suggest involvement of the DSN, long thoracic (lateral thoracic wall), suprascapular (scapular) and radial nerves (posterolateral arm and forearm) and possibly the axillary (posterolateral shoulder) and musculocutaneous nerves
In the present study, we also got one specimen of the left side in which the pronator teres was supplied by the musculocutaneous nerve
and that nerve was arising 10.9 cm above the intercondylar line.
Single, constant-current electrical stimuli (1 ms duration) were delivered to the musculocutaneous nerve
over the motor point of BB previously identified according to standard position sites (Digi timer, DS7A, UK, range from 1 to 100mA, fixed durations between 0.05 to2 ms).

(12) This transfer restores elbow flexion following loss of the musculocutaneous nerve
, a branch of the lateral cord.
The sensory areas in the skin were lateral side of forearm (musculocutaneous nerve
), thenar eminence (median nerve), hypothenar eminence (ulnar nerve) and radial dorsum of the hand (radial nerve).
The musculocutaneous nerve
is within the body of the coracobrachialis.
Based on the location and character of the symptoms experienced by the patients in this report, we suggest that this pain represents compression of the musculocutaneous nerve
by the subdermal capsule resulting in a "Norplant neuropathy."
