Now free the median nerve [held by the forceps] from the deep surface of flexor digitorum superficialis [held by retractor]. Identify the muscular branches of the median nerve to the following muscles: palmaris longus muscle, flexor carpi radialis muscle, flexor digitorum superficialis muscle, and pronator teres muscle. Through most of the forearm, the median nerve passes in the plane between the flexor digitorum superficialis muscle and flexor digitorum profundus muscle.
