Sample text

Test Maneuver First volar: Ulnarly deviates the second digit. Second volar: Radially deviates the fourth digit. Third volar: Radially deviates the fifth digit. Pitfalls First volar: If electrode is inserted too superficially it will be in the second dorsal interosseus; if inserted too deeply, it will be in adductor pollicis. Second volar: If electrode is inserted too superficially it will be in the third dorsal interosseus. Third volar: If electrode is inserted too superficially it will be in the fourth dorsal interosseus; if inserted too deeply it will be in opponens Comments (a) These muscles show the same variability in innervation as the dorsal interossei.

Deep Head: Ulnar Nerve, Medial Cord, Anterior Division, Low Trunk, C8, T1. Origin Superficial Head: Ridge of the trapezium and the flexor retinaculurn Deep Head: Ulnar side of first metacarpal. Insertion Superficial Head: Radial side of the base of the proximal phalanx thumb. Deep Head: Ulnar side of base of proximal phalanx of the thumb. 32 Flexor Pollicis Brevis 33 Position Hand in full supination. Electrode Insertion (X) Superficial Head: A line is drawn between the ulnar aspect of the metacarpophalangeal joint (MP-I) and the pisiform (P).

19 20 Anatomical Guide for the Electromyographer Electrode Insertion (X) At the free edge of the first web space. The needle is directed toward the proximal end of the first metacarpal bone.

Comments (a) The most distal muscle innervated by the ulnar nerve. (b) Paresis or paralysis of this muscle results in Froment’s sign (substitution of flexor pollicis longus on attempted adduction of thumb).
