Anatomy article structure (nerve)

Last revised by Frank Gaillard on 20 Mar 2022

As with all other articles, the introductory paragraph should introduce the anatomical term and aim to give an summary that captures the main features of the nerve including location, course and function. The first sentence should contain the title of the article in bold

  • location:
  • origin and course:
  • branches and supply:
  • relations:
  • you can provide links to other articles about the branches

Having information about normal variation as well as the frequency of such variation is key for radiological anatomy articles.

Helps understand variant anatomy.

Whenever appropriate, this section can clarify the etymology of an anatomical term or elaborate on the historical context of the term's name or eponym.

This section should include information about the structure that may be important in clinical work. For example, an interventional procedure or surgical approach that involves an anatomical structure. 

This section should include links to pertinent related pathology, particularly if the condition has an anatomical basis.
