Medial Triceps Branch to Axillary Nerve Transfer 1 Mackinnon SE1 Yee A1 May 11, 2011Disclosure: No authors have a financial interest in any of the products, devices, or drugs mentioned in this production or publication.The medial triceps branch to axillary nerve transfer is an available option for reconstructing patients with shoulder deficits that include an axillary nerve injury. Not presented in this tutorial, the accessory to suprascapular nerve transfer is additionally performed to stabilize the humerus during its range-of-motion in these patients. The triceps to axillary nerve transfer specifically innervates the deltoid and teres minor. The superior lateral cutaneous branch of the axillary nerve is provided with rudimentary sensation through an end-to-side nerve transfer to the sensory component of the radial nerve. The surgical approach involves proceeding between the long and lateral head of the triceps brachii on the posterior aspect of the arm.Keywords: sensory end-to-side nerve transferaxillary nervebrachial plexusnerve transfershoulder functionnerve injurymedial triceps branch of radial nerve You must login to view the full article and extended video on this page.
