Proximal vs. Distal Radial Nerve Injuries

Neuroanatomy and comparative pathophysiology and clinical presentations of two distinct types of radial nerve injury

Radial Nerve Paralysis from Brachial Plexus Injury

Notice extreme affect on gait and atrophy of tricipital and craniolateral extensor muscles

Radial Nerve Injury- Proximal Division

Notice knuckling, extreme gait deficit and lack of ability to support weight on the left thoracic limb

Source: Dr. Worthman

Radial Nerve Injury- Distal Division

Notice dog knuckles on slippery floor at first step and then compensates with an exaggerated forward phase to "fling" paw forward to land.
