Radius - Posterior Approach
Play

Step by step

Superficial dissection

Skin

Mark

Mark the skin over the dorsal tubercle of the radius and just anterior to the lateral epicondyle of the humerus. Connect the dots to mark the incision line over the dorsal aspect of the forearm.

Proximal radius access

In case access to the proximal radius is required, an anterior approach should be used. This is to reduce the risk of injuring the posterior interosseous nerve. For a more detailed elaboration of this, refer to the course:”Radius – Anterior Approach“.
