The results of proximal nerve injuries with nerve gaps are less than perfect and provide only extrinsic muscle function with sensation at the best; intrinsic muscle function recovery is rarely seen. The imbalance in the hand resulting from denervation of the intrinsic muscles is usually treated by tendon transfers in a second sitting; since the results of tendon transfer depend on multiple factors, the final outcome may not be predictable for the individual patient the aims and objectives of this. Study to know the anatomical feasibility of the distal expendable motor branches of the median nerve to selectively reinnervate the intrinsic muscles of the hand. The method used are10 upper limbs from 5 cadavers were dissected in this study.4X loupe magnification was used for the dissection. Length and width of nerves were measured with measuring scale & calipers.
