Radial Nerve Injury and Entrapment
The radial nerve, which innervates the upper limb together with the median nerve and the ulnar nerve, is one of the most important peripheral nerves. Its damage can cause loss of active extension error of the wrist and digits. Because it runs along the humerus, it is susceptible to damage by compression and fractures. Entrapment neuropathy may occur, because it passes through the anatomical entrapment point around the elbow joint.
