Even if good motor function returns in a replanted digit, if no useful sensation returns, the digit cannot be considered fully functional. In such cases sensory reconstruction with nerve grafts may be necessary, but it is difficult to determine the optimal time for such surgery. Therefore, we studied 37 replanted digits in which the palmar digital nerves(More)
An 87-year-old male was admitted with intermittent claudication of the left calf. We performed lower extremity angiography, which revealed stenosis of the left popliteal artery. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) image correctly identified the cystic appearance of visualized extravascular hypodensity, causing extrinsic compression of the lumen. We diagnosed(More)
BACKGROUND Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a non-inflammatory, non-atherosclerotic, degenerative vascular disease that most frequently affects renal and carotid arteries in women aged 30-50 years, and rarely complicating arteries of the lower limbs. CASE REPORT A 60-year-old woman was admitted with intermittent claudication of both legs. We performed(More)
The order of sensory recovery (the first appearance of each sensory modality in the amputated digit) and the speed of sensory recovery in the amputated digit were recorded in 74 replanted digits in which both digital nerves had been severed and repaired primarily. The order of sensory recovery was measured by Frey hairs to determine pressure (30 gm) and(More)
