Anatomy of the forearmdr: Yasser Seddeg


Anatomy of the forearm dr yasser seddeg

  • Forearm = antebrachium

  • Two bones: ulna and radius

  • Two compartments: flexor and extensor

  • Each compartment has a supf. and deep part

  • Flexor compartment mainly median nerve

    (median nerve for superficial part

    anterior interosseus nerve for deep part)

  • Extensor compartment mainly radial nerve

    (posterior interosseus nerve after it has pierced supinator m.)

COMPARTMENTS OF THE FOREARM

  • 2 compartments:

  • Flexor Compartment:anterior part of forearm

  • Extensor Compartment:posterior part of forearm

Bones of the elbow

Bones of the Elbow

The lower end of the humerus flairs out as epicondyles. These provide a mechanical advantage to the forearm muscle groups that attach at these sites.

FRONT OF FOREARM

  • MUSCLES

  • 5 superficial muscles : all cross elbow joint

  • 3 deep muscles : do not cross elbow joint

  • Flexors = more bulky - antigravity muscles & used for grip

  • ARTERIES

  • Superficial radial; deep ulnar

  • Anterior interosseous a. (branch of ulnar) supplies deepest structures on front of forearm

  • NERVES

  • Median nerve (with its ant. Interosseous branch) is main nerve of front of forearm

  • Radial nerve (with its post. Interosseous branch) is main nerve of back of forearm


Anatomy of the forearm dr yasser seddeg

SUPERFICIAL MUSCLES : FRONT OF FOREARM

  • Pronator Teres(PT)

  • Flexor Carpi Radialis (FCR)

  • Palmaris Longus (PL)

  • Flexor Carpi Ulnaris (FCU)

  • Flexor Digitorum Superficialis(FDS)


Superficial muscles of the anterior forearm

Superficial Muscles of the Anterior Forearm

  • 5 superficial muscles

  • From the common flexor tendon arising from the medial condyle of the humerus

  • Cross the elbow but have no function at that joint

Thumb = pronator teres

5th digit (tucked under) = flexor digitorum superficialis

2nd digit = flexor carpi radialis

3rd digit = palmaris longus

4th digit = flexor carpi ulnaris

SUPERFICIAL MUSCLES : FRONT OF FOREARM

  • ADDITIONAL ORIGINS

  • Deep (ulnar) head of PT

  • Medial margin of coronoid process of ulna

  • Ulnar head of FCU

  • Medial margin of olecranon

  • FDS (ulnar & radial heads)

  • Ulnar head

  • Sublime tubercle on medial border of cornoid process,

  • Radial head

  • Anterior border of radius


Anatomy of the forearm dr yasser seddeg

  • INSERTIONS

  • PT

  • middle 1/3 lateral surface shaft of radius

  • FCR

  • base 2nd & 3rd mertacarpal bones

  • PL

  • flexor retinaculum;

  • FCU

  • pisiform bone

  • FDS

  • forms 4 tendons for medial 4 fingers; opposite bases of proximal phalanges each tendon is perforated by tendon of FDP; split tendon inserts into 2 sides of shaft of middle phalanx

FRONT OF FOREARM

  • NERVE SUPPLY

  • FCU:ulnar nerve

  • PT, FCR, PL, FDS :median nerve

  • ACTION

  • PT : main pronator of forearm & hand

  • FCR, PL, FCU : chief flexors of wrist

  • FCR : abducts hand

  • FCU : fixes pisiform bone during contraction of hpyothenar muscles; abducts little finger


Deep muscles of the anterior forearm

Deep Muscles of the Anterior Forearm

  • 3 Deep Muscles

Thumb

Fingers

Wrist

  • Arise from the ulna (pronator quadratus, flexor digitorum profundus) and radius (flexor pollicis longus)


Anatomy of the forearm dr yasser seddeg

FRONT OF FOREARM : FDP

  • Origin

  • Upper anterior & medial surfaces of shaft of ulna

  • Medial surfaces of olecranon & coronoid processes of ulna

  • Insertion

  • Palmar surface of base of distal phalanges

  • Innervation

  • Medial 1/2 - ulnar nerve

  • Lateral 1/2 - anterior interosseous nerve

  • Action

  • Flexion of distal phalanges


Anatomy of the forearm dr yasser seddeg

FRONT OF FOREARM : FPL

  • Origin

  • Upper 3/4 of anterior surface of shaft of radius

  • Adjoining part of anterior surface of

  • interosseous membrane

  • Insertion

  • Palmar surface of base of distal phalanx of thumb

  • Innervation

  • Anterior interosseous nerve

  • Action :Flexes distal phalanx of the thumb

PRONATOR QUADRATUS

  • Origin

  • lower 1/4 of anterior surface of shaft of ulna

  • Insertion

  • lower 1/4 of anterior surface of radius

  • Innervation

  • Anterior interosseous nerve

  • Action

  • Superficial fibers pronate forearm

  • Deep fibers bind lower ends of radius & ulna

Median nerve

Median Nerve

  • All forearm muscles are innervated by the MEDIAN nerve EXCEPT:

    1 ¬Ĺ muscles

    • flexor carpi ulnaris
