Superficial Branch of Radial Nerve

Superficial Branch Of Radial Nerve

The superficial branch of the radial nerve passes along the front of the radial side of the forearm to the commencement of its lower third.

It lies at first slightly lateral to the radial artery, concealed beneath the Brachioradialis. In the middle third of the forearm, it lies behind the same muscle, close to the lateral side of the artery.

It quits the artery about 7 cm. above the wrist, passes beneath the tendon of the Brachioradialis, and, piercing the deep fascia, divides into two branches: lateral and medial.

Famous quotes containing the words nerve, branch and/or superficial:

    The American people is out to get the kaiser. We are bending every nerve and every energy towards that end; anybody who gets in the way of the great machine the energy and devotion of a hundred million patriots is building towards the stainless purpose of saving civilization from the Huns will be mashed like a fly. I’m surprised that a collegebred man like you hasn’t more sense. Don’t monkey with the buzzsaw.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    That man’s the true Conservative
    Who lops the mouldered branch away.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    To speak truly, few adult persons can see nature. Most persons do not see the sun. At least they have a very superficial seeing. The sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into the eye and the heart of the child.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
