Özet

Objectives: The Problems encountered during recovery of traumatic brachial plexus injuries despite adequate treatment has important socioeconomic impacts. Neurotization of median nerve with brachialis muscle branch of musculocutaneous nerve has become popular recently. Whether it is superior to transfer of brachialis muscle to finger flexors is still unclear. Our research on human cadavers is aimed at examining the possibility of this nerve transfer by quantitatively describing the courses of related nerves.
