Assessment of nerve regeneration and adaptation after median nerve reconnection and digital neurovascular flap transfer.

Abstract

Six patients with median nerve severance (five sutured) were studied after an interval of 1.8 to 35 years to assess residual neurologic deficit, misdirected axonal regrowth, and adaptation to faulty reinnervation. Mild motor impairment was confirmed by the smaller thenar muscle action potentials and isometric muscle twitches from supramaximal stimulation of… (More)
