Ultrasonography of the ulnar nerve at the cubital tunnel and of the common peroneal nerve dorsal to the fibular head

WANG Yue-xiang,LI Jun-lai(Department of Ultrasound,PLA General Hospital,Beijing 100853,China)  
Objective To evaluate the ability of high frequency ultrasound to visualize the ulnar nerve at cubital tunnel and the common peroneal nerve dorsal to the fibular head in normal subjects.Methods A 14 MHz linear-array transducer was used to detect the nerve.The ultrasonographic characteristics of the nerve and its surrounding tissue were observed in 20 healthy adults.The longitudinal and transverse diameters and surface areas of the two nerves on both sides were measured respectively.Results Both nerves were visualized clearly in all subjects.The ulnar nerve demonstrated as round or oval hypoechoic structure between the ulnar olecranon and medial epicondyle on transverse section but a little hyperechoic when it passed through the muscles in the forearm.The common peroneal nerve demonstrated as slightly hyperechoic structure dorsal to the fibular head on transverse section.There were no significant differences between left-and right-side measurements for both ulnar nerve and common peroneal nerve.Conclusion High frequency ultrasound is useful in demonstrating the ulnar nerve at cubital tunnel and the common peroneal nerve dorsal to the fibular head.
