     Following a traumatic fall and visit to the ER, you as the attending physician are presented with radiographs of the patient’s shoulder. A fracture at the tagged area will most likely damage which nerve?

    • A.

      Suprascapular

    • B.

      Axillary

    • C.

      Thoracodorsal

    • D.

      Radial

    • E.

      Dorsal scapular

    Correct Answer
    B. Axillary
    Explanation
    A fracture at the tagged area is most likely to damage the axillary nerve. The axillary nerve innervates the deltoid muscle and the teres minor muscle, both of which are important for shoulder movement and stability. Damage to the axillary nerve can result in weakness or paralysis of these muscles, leading to difficulty in raising the arm and performing certain movements.

    • A.

      Abduction

    • B.

      Adduction

    • C.

      Flexion

    • D.

      Extension

    • E.

      Medial rotation

    A patient complaining of shoulder pain undergoes an MRI, which reveals a cystic mass that is lodged within the tagged area. The mass is most likely to compress which structure?

    • A.

      Circumflex scapular artery

    • B.

      Dorsal scapular nerve

    • C.

      Axillary nerve

    • D.

      Suprascapular nerve

    • E.

      Dorsal scapular artery

    Correct Answer
    D. Suprascapular nerve
    Explanation
    The MRI reveals a cystic mass lodged within the tagged area, and the question asks which structure is most likely to be compressed by this mass. The suprascapular nerve is the most likely structure to be compressed because it runs through the suprascapular notch, which is located in the region where the cystic mass is found. Compression of the suprascapular nerve can cause shoulder pain and weakness, which aligns with the patient's complaint of shoulder pain.
