  • The only one I can identify now is the musculocutaneous.

    Body of Knowledge

  • The nerves of the joint are a twig from the ulnar, as it passes between the medial condyle and the olecranon; a filament from the musculocutaneous, and two from the median.

    III. Syndesmology. 6d. Elbow-joint

  • —The Coracobrachialis, Biceps brachii and Brachialis are supplied by the musculocutaneous nerve; the Brachialis usually receives an additional filament from the radial.

  • It crosses superficial to the musculocutaneous nerve and ascends in the groove along the lateral border of the Biceps brachii.

  • The lateral antibrachial cutaneous nerve (n. cutaneus antibrachii cutaneous lateralis; branch of musculocutaneous nerve) passes behind the cephalic vein, and divides, opposite the elbow-joint, into a volar and a dorsal branch (Figs. 811, 813).

    IX. Neurology. 6b. The Anterior Divisions

  • Some of the fibers of the median may run for some distance in the musculocutaneous and then leave it to join their proper trunk; less frequently the reverse is the case, and the median sends a branch to join the musculocutaneous.

    IX. Neurology. 6b. The Anterior Divisions

  • The branches to the Biceps brachii and Brachialis are given off after the musculocutaneous has pierced the Coracobrachialis; that supplying the Brachialis gives a filament to the elbow-joint.

    IX. Neurology. 6b. The Anterior Divisions

  • The musculocutaneous nerve presents frequent irregularities.

    IX. Neurology. 6b. The Anterior Divisions

  • The nerves of the brachial plexus bear the following relations to this part of the artery: on the lateral side are the lateral head and the trunk of the median, and the musculocutaneous for a short distance; on the medial side the ulnar (between the vein and artery) and medial brachial cutaneous (to the medial side of the vein); in front are the medial head of the median and the medial antibrachial cutaneous, and behind, the radial and axillary, the latter only as far as the lower border of the Subscapularis.
