Assessment of functional recovery following any peripheral nerve manipulation is critical. While quantitative neurobehavioral testing has been developed in the anesthesia literature for the assessment of neural function, the surgical literature relies mainly on walking track analysis for evaluation of motor recovery. The latter method is both cumbersome to perform and difficult to quantify. We compared standard walking track analysis with the quantitative neurobehavioral tests recently… CONTINUE READING
