Locating the sural nerve during calcaneal (Achilles) tendon repair with confidence: a cadaveric study with clinical applications.

Abstract

The sural nerve is at risk of iatrogenic injury even during minimally invasive operative procedures to repair the calcaneal (Achilles) tendon. Through 107 cadaveric leg dissections, the data derived from the present study was used to develop a regression equation that will enable surgeons to estimate the intersection point at which the sural nerve crosses… (More)
