In brief: Radial nerve palsy
Is a condition inwhich the radial nerve ceases to function.
It can be temposary if the nerve was just bruised, or it can be permanent if the nerve was irreversably damaged. The radial nerve is responsible for several of the muscles that control the hand and wrist as well as the triceps muscle. The effect of the palsy depends on where the nerve was injured. Everything downstrem will be affected.
