abstract

  • A patient with arteriovenous malformations of the volar forearm and hand arising from a persistent median artery with an associated bifid median nerve is presented. Surgeons should be aware of high median nerve bifurcations, particularly when a persistent median artery is identified, and should remember that additional structures that can lead to nerve compression may be present in the carpal tunnel. Specifically, more than one median nerve may need to be identified and protected in such cases.
