radial nerve n.
A nerve that arises from the posterior cord of the brachial plexus and divides into two terminal branches, designated superficial and deep, that supply muscular and cutaneous branches to the dorsal aspect of the arm and forearm.
This sort of resistance may stretch the radial nerve or its branches in a way that paralysis results.
Several crops of herpetic vesicles also developed over the distribution of the radial nerve in the hand.
The radial nerve divides into its superficial and deep (posterior interosseous) branches at the level of the lateral condyle.
