Flashcards in Block 2 - Cubital Fossa Deck (23):
What is contained in the anterior compartment of the arm?
3 muscles - biceps brachii, brachialis, coracobrachialis
What is found in the posterior compartment of the arm?
Profundii artery and veins
What runs anterolateral to the basilic vein in the arm?
The medial cutaneous nerve of forearm
Where does the medial cubital vein run?
Transversely anteriorly between cephalic and basilic veins
What is the relation of the short head of biceps brachii to long head?
The long head is more lateral
What pierces the coracobrachialis?
The musculocutaneous nerve
What holds the tendon of the long biceps head down at the shoulder?
The transverse humeral ligament
Besides the biceps brachii tendon, how else does the bicep hold down at the elbow?
Where does the biceps tendon insert?
What does the musculocutaneous nerves turn into below the elbow?
Lateral cutaneous nerve of forearm
What does the lateral cutaneous nerve of the forearm parallel from the cubital fossa into the forearm?
The cephalic vein
Which muscle is larger at the elbow, brachialis or coracobrachialis?
Where does the median nerve not have branches?
Which nerve (and its branches) typically follow the basilic vein in the arm?
Medial cutaneous nerve of forearm
What does the median nerve run with and cross mid-arm? How?
Brachial artery, from lateral to medial
Where does the ulnar nerve travel at the elbow?
Where does the superior ulnar colateral artery run at the elbow?
Posterior to medial epicondyle
What passes anterior to the ellbow, between the brachialis and the pronator teres?
Inferior ulnar colateral artery
What are the boundaries of the cubital fossa?
Pronator teres (medial)
Epicondylar line (superior)
Bicipital aponeurosis and antebrachial fascia (roof)
What are paired veins called?
What is between the brachial artery and median nerve (deep) and the superficial veins?
What two structures run in the radial groove?
