Age, late repair, loss of nerve tissue, tension, and other factors are now known to influence axon regeneration and the quality of recovery after nerve repair. Many of the factors cannot be controlled by surgery. However, a few important ones depend on surgical technique, and some could be minimized, e.g., suture with tension, scarring due to foreign(More)

In this study we will discuss entrapment of the median, ulnair, radial and lateral antebrachial nerves of the elbow and the forearm. Compression of the nerves may occur when they traverse a tunnel and an incompatibility exists between the diameter of the tunnel and its contents (e.g. nerves, tendons,...). However, at the elbow and the forearm the nerves are(More)
