Zusammenfassung

Der N. ulnaris (Abb. 125) geht aus den Wurzeln C7, C8, Th1 hervor. Seine Fasern ziehen zunächst im Fasciculus medialis des Plexus brachialis. Er verläuft in der Axilla hinter A. und V. axillaris, bedeckt vom M. pectoralis minor. Im Bereich des Oberarmes zieht er medial der A. brachialis und lateral der V. brachialis zusammen mit dem N. medianus und N. musculocutaneus als neuro vaskuläres Bündel distalwärts in einer Rinne, die dorsal vom langen und medialen Kopf des M. triceps brachii und lateral vom M. coracobrachialis gebildet wird. Etwa in der Mitte des Oberarms tritt der N. ulnaris durch das Septum intermusculare mediale und gelangt auf die Streckseite des Oberarms.
