Nerve supply to left coracobrachialis, biceps and brachialis muscles, medial view
The muscles have been retracted to show the course of the musculocutaneous nerve.
1 . Radial nerve

6 . Triceps brachii muscle
7 . Superior ulnar collateral artery
8 . Ulnar nerve
9 . Medial intermuscular septum
10 . Median nerve
11 . Brachial artery
12 . Joint of humerus
13 . Middle cord of brachial plexus
14 . Upper pointer: Musculocutaneous nerve Lower pointer: Branches of musculocutaneous nerve (to coracobrachialis muscle)
15 . Lateral head of median nerve
16 . Posterior circumflex artery of humerus
17 . Coracobrachialis muscle
18 . Medial head of median nerve
