Example text

Reflect pectoralis minor from its origin. Identify the axillary artery and note that the pectoralis minor divides the course of this vessel into three parts. The first part is proximal to the muscle, the second part lies behind the muscle while the third part is distal to the muscle. At the same time clean the axillary vein. 12. Now examine the part of the brachial plexus lying in the axilla. Note that the brachial plexus lies partly in the neck, partly behind the clavicle and partly in the axilla.

Clean the deltoid muscle arising from the anterior aspect of the lateral third of the clavicle, lateral border of the acromion and the crest of the spine of the scapula. Note the insertion of the muscle into the deltoid tuberosity of the humerus. Examine the direction of the anterior, middle and posterior fibres of the muscle. 7. Cut the deltoid muscle close to its origin and push the muscle downwards and secure the axillary nerve lying on its deep surface. It supplies the deltoid and teres minor muscles.

The trunks are upper, middle and lower, and they too lie in the neck. The divisions lie behind the clavicle. The cords are lateral, posterior and medial, and they lie in the axilla. These cords are associated with the first and second parts of the axillary artery, and give rise to branches that are associated with the third part of the axillary artery. 13. Now proceed to clean the branches of the cords in relation to the third part of the axillary artery: (a) the medial cutaneous nerve of arm lying medial to the axillary vein, this supplies the medial side of the arm (do not waste time searching for it); (b) the medial cutaneous nerve of forearm running superficially between the vein and the artery, this supplies the medial side of the forearm; (c) the ulnar nerve, lying between the vein and the artery but in a deeper plane to the medial cutaneous nerve of forearm; (d) the median nerve lying lateral to the artery.
