Variations In The Formation Of The Median Nerve

Praveen B Iyer*, Lakshmi Rajgopal*.

Abstract
Background: Variations in the formation of median nerve can result in misinterpretation of clinical signs
due to median nerve palsy and hence they are of great clinical significance. Thus this project was taken up to study
these variations and also to measure the distance of the site of formation of the median nerve from the tip of the
coracoid process of the scapula. Methodology: Ninety-eight formalin fixed upper limbs were used for the study (50
right, 48 left). The variations in the formation of the median nerve were noted. The level of formation of the median
nerve was measured from the tip of the coracoid process of the scapula. Results: The median nerve was formed from
an anterior cord of brachial plexus in two cases, both on the left side. Double lateral root of the median nerve was
present in 4 specimens, 3 on the left side and 1 on the right side. Conclusion: Variations in the formation of median
nerve have embryological basis and clinical significance and the distance of site of the union of two roots of the
median nerve from the tip of the coracoid process will be helpful to surgeons to locate median nerve in surgeries
around the shoulder. [Iyer P NJIRM 2016; 7(3):17 - 20]

Key words: variation, formation, median nerve, cord, brachial plexus.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
