Ulnar nerve entrapment

What is Ulnar nerve entrapment?

Because of the anatomic positioning of the ulnar nerve, it is subjected to entrapment and injury by a wide variety of causes. It is the second most common entrapment neuropathy in the upper extremity (the first being the median nerve and its branches). Because of its superficial position at the elbow, it is often injured by excessive pressure in this area.
