One possible explanation for this difference is the lower impedance in the ventral skin (used for median nerve stimulation) compared to the dorsal skin (used for ulnar nerve
stimulation) of the arm .
27) No other studies document the findings of ulnar nerve
problems at or distal to the wrist in dental personnel.
In our opinion, the persistence of ulnar nerve
symptoms in the patient necessitated surgical exploration in spite of relatively negative, inconclusive investigations.
With the arm in extension, the ulnar nerve
was noted in the cubital tunnel and the adjacent triceps muscle was in the expected normal position posterior to the apex of the medial epicondyle on extension (Figs 1 and 2).
Physiologic data obtained after ulnar nerve
stimulation in a study of brachial nerve block technique in mallard ducks.
The five terminal nerve branches are the musculocutaneous, axillary, radial, median, and ulnar nerves
In addition to these clinical symptoms and signs, median nerve conduction slowing indicates upper plexus compression, whereas ulnar nerve
conduction slowing suggests lower plexus compression.
Chapter Two, "The Anatomy of Nerve Injury," explains the three major nerves in the arm, the median, radial and ulnar nerves
, and gives an overview of the nonsurgical treatment options available to injured patients.
Medial elbow pain coupled with parasthesias of the 4th and 5th digits is characteristic of cubital tunnel syndrome or ulnar nerve
There are numerous case reports in the literature of ganglion and cysts arising from the elbow causing compressive neuropathies of the radial, posterior interosseus, and ulnar nerve
Compression, traction, and subluxation/ dislocation of the ulnar nerve
at the cubital tunnel during prolonged elbow flexion or repetitive elbow flexion and extension are associated with the pathomechanics of UNEE.
CardioFlex successfully treats all levels of arm injuries, including finger, wrist, and elbow fractures, tendonitis, bursitis, tenosynovitis, bone breaks, ORIF fracture surgeries, bicpes tears, muscles tears, strains, sprains, DeQuervain's Syndrome, cartilage damage, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, carpal tunnel, radial & ulnar nerve
impingement, dislocated fingers, wrist, & elbows, cubital tunnel, triceps tears, nerve damage, peripheral neuropathy, neurological conditions, neuro disorders, cysts, contractures, and pre & post surgical patients.
