Autologous muscle grafts were used to repair 12 mixed peripheral nerves (9 posterior tibial, 3 median) in 10 patients with leprosy who had total anaesthesia and analgesia of the area supplied by the nerve. Postoperatively, 7 patients reported improved sensation in the foot or hand, with a return of vibration sense and joint position sense in 11 and of(More)
A total of 38 patients with leprosy and localised nerve damage (11 median at the wrist and 37 posterior tibial at the ankle) were treated by 48 freeze-thawed skeletal muscle autografts ranging between 2.5 cm and 14 cm in length. Sensory recovery was noted in 34 patients (89%) and was maintained during a mean period of follow-up of 12.6 years (4 to 14).(More)

The commonest paralytic deformity in leprosy is the claw deformity of the fingers. Many surgical procedures have been described and are practiced to correct this deformity, but none is free from complications. A modification of the Zancolli lasso operation in which only half of the flexor digitorum superficialis tendon of the middle finger was used as the(More)
