Position: prone. Incision: paramedian, between the midline and medial border of the scapula Fig. 2 The trapezius (T) is exposed and incised foramen and can easily be tamponade with Gelfoam and thrombin. 11. The trunks can be followed distally to divisions (Fig. 5). 12. The suprascapular nerve can be identified coming off the upper trunk going towards the suprascapular notch. 13. The long thoracic nerve arises from the posterior aspect of the upper ventral rami (C5–C7), within scalenus medius, and travels towards the serratus anterior outer surface.

In the Cubital Fossa (Fig. 4) 1. Midline anterior incision z-shaped to avoid crossing the elbow crease. 2. The antecubital vein may be encountered in the superficial fascia; it can be ligated and cut. 3. The deep fascia is opened and then the bicipital aponeurosis. 4. This exposes the contents of the cubital fossa with the brachial artery dividing into radial and ulnar arteries and the median nerve medial to the artery. 5. The median nerve gives off branches to the superficial flexor muscles except flexor carpi ulnaris.

Distally, it enters the posterior arm behind the medial intermuscular septum and then travels posterior to the medial epicondyle. Around the Elbow 1. Position: supine with the arm abducted and externally rotated and the elbow flexed. 2. Incision is made between the medial epicondyle and the olecranon process. It is extended cranially and caudally along the course of the nerve. A short incision is used for a simple decompression, but a longer (20 cm) incision is used for a transposition. 3.
