Where is the superficial radial nerve palpable? where it crosses the EPL tendon
Superficial radial nerve dives directly beneath ______ and resurfaces __________________________. brachioradialis, wrist at dorsum of hand
What is the power pronator mm? pronator quadratus
what is the primary supinator mm? Biceps
What is the last mm innervated by post interosseus (rad n branches)? Extensor indicis
