Cut the muscle close to its origins and reflect it laterally. The lateral and medial pectoral nerves supply the pectoralis major and the underlying pectoralis minor muscle. Note that the pectoralis major muscle is inserted into the crest of the greater tubercle of the humerus. 7. Define the underlying clavipectoral fascia which lies between the clavicle and the upper border of the pectoralis minor. This fascia splits above to enclose the subclavius muscle lying below the clavicle and the pectoralis minor below.

The innervation of muscles is both motor and sensory. The stimulation of the motor nerve causes a contraction of the muscle. The sensory nerve carries information about the nature of the force of contraction, degree of stretch, etc. of the muscle it innervates. Peripheral Nerves Knowledge of the anatomy of a nerve must include its origin, course, relations, distribution and surface anatomy. Origin Many peripheral nerves arise as branches of a larger nerve trunk, but others arise directly from a plexus.

These nerves are branches of the cervical plexus and supply the skin of the upper pectoral and shoulder regions; (b) the anterior cutaneous branches of the intercostal nerves lateral to the sternum which are accompanied by perforating branches of the internal thoracic artery. These nerves and vessels emerge about 3 cm from the midline; and (c) the lateral cutaneous branches of the intercostal (thoracic) nerves which emerge along the midaxillary line and divide into anterior and posterior branches.
