Peripheral nerves are susceptible to a variety of injuries, often with coexistent orthopaedic trauma. Although the presence of nerve involvement in many circumstances may be clinically obvious, an appropriate therapeutic approach depends on more detailed information regarding the nature of the lesion. Electrodiagnostic studies (nerve conduction studies [NCS] and needle electromyography [EMG]) can provide precise information about the localization and severity of the nerve injury. These are… CONTINUE READING
