Ulnar Nerve Transposition

The ulnar nerve runs from the neck down to the ring and little fingers. It controls some of the motion in the hand and forearm. This nerve can become entrapped in an area called the cubital tunnel, found behind the inner elbow. The nerve can become compressed by fibrous bands of tissue near the bony bump inside the elbow, leading to pain, weakness in the hand, and numbness or tingling of the ring and little fingers. Surgical correction is sometimes needed to free the nerve and the surgeon may decide that ulnar nerve transposition will work best. During this procedure, the ulnar nerve is moved from its current location to a new place in front of the elbow, either on top of, within, or under the muscle. Physical therapy or occupational therapy may be helpful to help restore normal function.
