The terminal branch of the anterior interosseous nerve is described anatomically and demonstrated histologically. Injury to this nerve can be the source of persistent, dull aching volar wrist pain. Suitability for partial volar wrist denervation is determined by functional testing before and after a diagnostic nerve block. Experience with twelve patients with this problem is presented.
