Rehabilitation of Digital Nerve Repair: Is Splinting Necessary?
Early Passive Mobilization after Digital Nerve Repair and Grafting in a Fresh Cadaver
TLDR
Early mobilization with tendon protocols may be considered after a nerve injury to avoid the detrimental tendon sequelae that result from immobilization, and the adequacy of functional recovery of mobilized nerves is yet to be determined.
Postoperative splinting for isolated digital nerve injuries in the hand.
TLDR
Results suggest splinting may not be required postoperatively, following recent cadaveric studies indicating postoperative rehabilitation is not necessary with resection up to 2.5mm.
Effect of Motion on Digital Nerve Repair in a Fresh Cadaver Model
TLDR
A fresh cadaver model was designed for digital nerve division, resection, repair, and passive motion to give valuable objective data that can be used to guide early motion and splinting protocols after various degrees of digital nerve injury and repair.
NERVE SUTURE: AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY TO DETERMINE THE STRENGTH OF THE SUTURE LINE
TLDR
Clinically, this method of repair has not yielded encouraging results, and Lewis 4 attributes this to the tendency of the distal line of suture to act as a block to the regenerating nerve segments.
Clinical outcomes of early active mobilization following flexor tendon repair using the six-strand technique: short- and long-term evaluations
TLDR
A total of 19 fingers showed no significant increases in total active motion more than 2 years after surgery, and five out of six ruptured tendons were repaired by inexperienced surgeons.
Effect of early mobilization on healing of nerve repair: histologic observations in a canine model.
TLDR
Early mobilization seems to impede nerve regeneration by delaying revascularization and enhancing scar formation in dogs in a canine model.
Further experience with interfascicular grafting of the median, ulnar, and radial nerves.
TLDR
Comparison of the results with those in other series indicates that interfascicular nerve-grafting gives results which are at least as good as those after epineural nerve suture under ideal conditions and better than those after neurorrhaphy under tension.
