Lee YM, Song SW, Sur YJ, Ahn CY. Flexor carpi radialis brevis: an unusual anomalous muscle of the wrist. Clin Orthop Surg. 2014;6(3):361-4.
During imaging studies or surgical procedures, anomalous forearm and wrist muscles are occasionally encountered. Among them, the flexor carpi radialis brevis is very rare. Because the trend is growing toward treating distal radius fractures with volar plating, the flexor carpi radialis brevis is worth knowing. Here, we report two cases with a review of the literature.
