This prospective study reports treatment by neurolysis then wrapping the nerves in vascularized forearm fascia and, when necessary, adjunctive procedures of twelve median and two ulnar nerves in continuity in the distal forearm with neurogenic pain. Preoperatively, all 14 patients had severe pain in at least one of the five modalities of pain analysed. There was complete resolution of all modalities of pain in eight of 14 patients following neurolysis and fascial nerve wrap surgery and two more… CONTINUE READING
