Medial Antebrachial Cutaneous Nerve Graft Harvest 2 Mackinnon SE1 Yee A1 May 10, 2011Disclosure: No authors have a financial interest in any of the products, devices, or drugs mentioned in this production or publication.The medial antebrachial cutaneous (MABC) nerve is a viable donor for nerve grafts and our institution's preferred donor nerve graft for upper extremity nerve reconstructions. The MABC nerve is harvested from the medial aspect of the arm and is found branching distally into an anterior and posterior branch. The anterior and/or posterior branch can be harvested depending on the length and diameter required for nerve reconstruction. After harvesting the MABC nerve, the distal end of the MABC nerve is end-to-side transferred to an adjacent functional sensory nerve through an epineural window. in this case, the anterior branch of the MABC nerve is harvested for graft material and the anterior branch is end-to-side transferred to the posterior branch of the MABC nerve.Keywords: nerve graftingsensory end-to-side nerve transfermedial antebrachial cutaneous nervedonor nerve graft Standard Edition Table of Contents- Slow down- Frustration00:00:00 - Introduction00:00:10 - Orientation00:00:30 - Incision / Exposure00:01:10 - Identification of the Basilic Vein00:01:20 - Identifying the Anterior and Posterior Branches of MABC Nerve00:01:57 - Isolating the Anterior Branch of MABC Nerve00:02:13 - Neurolyzing the Anterior Branch from the MABC Nerve00:03:05 - Proximal Transection of the Anterior Branch of MABC Nerve00:03:20 - Harvesting Nerve Grafts from the Anterior Branch of MABC Nerve00:03:44 - Posterior Branch to Anterior Branch of MABC End-to-side Nerve Transfer00:05:07 - Insertion of the Pain Pump You must login to view the full article and extended video on this page.
