  • Olecranon
  • Styloid process
  • Extensor pollicis brevis
  • Abductor pollicis longus
  • “Anatomical snuff box”
  • Bodies of metacarpal bones
incisions
Incisions

The upper arm incisions will continue downward to the wrist. A circular incision will be made at the wrist.

Make an incision down the

midline of dorsum of the hand to the root of the middle finger (A to B). Make transverse incisions across the knuckles to the lateral and medial margins of hand (B to C, then B to D).

Cutaneous nerves of the forearm and hand are just deep to the skin.

Basilic and Cephalic veins are also only “skin deep”.
