During the summer of 2016, a group of students from the University of Palermo attending the second year of medicine school took part in a four week course of Whole Cadaveric Dissection at the University of Malta. Within this project, we students worked on a male cadaver by using a surgical kit, taking care to record everything with pictures and videos. In this way, every structure was isolated and studied in comparison with the anatomic atlas’ pictures. The aim of this article is to show the dissection method of the brachial plexus that we used. We started removing cutis and subcutis, then we identified the muscles’ origin and insertion; after isolating vascular-nervous structures, we finally exposed nerves, cords, trunks and roots of brachial plexus by using blunt dissection method.
