|Nerve: Deep branch of the radial nerve|
|The suprascapular, axillary, and radial nerves. (Deep branch of radial labeled at right.)|
|Latin||ramus profundus nervi radialis, nervus interosseus dorsalis|
|Gray's||subject #210 944|
The deep branch of the radial nerve winds to the back of the forearm around the lateral side of the radius between the two planes of fibers of the Supinator, and is prolonged downward between the superficial and deep layers of muscles, to the middle of the forearm.
Considerably diminished in size, it descends, as the posterior interosseous nerve.
