Median a. changes to ______ at carpus

medial palmar a.

2

Medial palmar a.

main blood supply to the digit, divides to form palmar digital a. Just proximal to the fetlock

3

Medial palmar digital a.

on abaxial surface of proximal sesamoid bones, terminates as the terminal arch

Lateral palmar digital a.

on abaxial surface of proximal sesamoid bones terminates as the terminal arch

Median n. splits at level of carpus into...

-medial palmar n.
-Lateral palmar n.

7

Lateral palmar n.

connects med & lat palmar n. at level of the mid-metacarpal bone

Median n. change at the level of the fetlock...

Medial palmar digital n. & lateral palmar digital n.

9

Deep br. of lateral palmar n. (@level of carpus)

dives into suspensory ligament, just palmar to MCIII

Lateral palmar metacarpal n.

close association w/ axial surface of splint bone (4th metacarpal)

lateral palmar n.

16

Ulnar n.

-like dog: found b/t medial humoral epicondyle and tuber olecranon
-supplies cutaneous innervation to distal medial aspect of the brachium and caudal aspect of the antecrachium
-bifurcates just above the carpus

17

Dorsal br. of ulnar n.

to skin-Lat/Dor metacarpal area

18

Palmar br. of ulnar n.

joins w/ lat br. of the median n. to form the lateral palmar n.

Musculocutaneous n. action

flexes elbow (biceps)

22

Axillary n. action

flex the shoulder

23

Median and ulnar n. action

flex carpus and digits

24

What nerve is likely damaged in a horse resulting in the muscle atrophy referred to as "Sweeny"?

Suprascapular n.

25

In a dog: which artery may be seen coursing toward the axillary lymph node, supply the deep pectoral, and travel w/ a nerve of the same name?

Lateral thoracic n.

26

A dog sustained an injury to the dorsal aspect of his antebrachium. You poke his paw with a pin and determine that he has no sensation to the dorsal aspect of his paw over digits 1-4. Sensory branches of what nerve have likely been damaged?

Radial nerve (under lateral belly of triceps)

27

Diagnostic nerve blocks

work from most distal towards proximal
