Reply: Anomalous Muscles in Carpal Tunnel Associated with Neurovascular Variation: Case Report and Brief Review
ABSTRACT
Gantzer’s muscle is an additional muscle in the forearm. We studied the incidence and the morphology of Gantzer’s muscle and its relation with neurovascular structures. However, unlike the previous suggestion by Eid et al., there is no significant difference in the frequency of the variations of these nerves whether Gantzer’s muscle is present or not.
