Volar aspect of forearm
Nerve supply to flexor pollicis longus muscle
The muscle has been elevated and its fascicles separated or cut away in part to expose the intramuscular course of its nerve.

2 . Brachioradialis muscle (tendon of insertion)
3 . Extensor carpi radialis longus muscle (tendon of insertion)
4 . Extensor can radialis brevis muscle (tendon of insertion)
5 . Radius
6 . Flexor digitorum superficialis (radial head, cut off)
7 . Pronator teres muscle (insertion)
8 . Muscular branch anterior interosseous nerve
9 . Ulnar artery
10 . Flexor pollicis longus muscle (elevated)
11 . Flexor digitorum profundus muscle
