INTRODUCTION: When traumatic collateral palmar digital nerve defect occurs, emergency venous grafting is an alternative to the two-step nervous grafting procedure.
METHODS: During the course of a monocentric retrospective study, 12 cases of emergency venous grafting were reviewed by a single independent examiner 11 months, at least, post-intervention. Clinical and functional evaluation was carried out, together with a self-assessment of the results by the patient. Data were compacted using a filtering method and the final result was considered in terms of "good" or "bad".
RESULTS: Good result was observed in ten cases out of 12. Bad results were associated with poor sensory recovery in the two other cases. In one of these, the bad result was also related to severe symptoms in cold conditions and a troublesome hyperesthesia.
DISCUSSION: Through a review of the literature, we justify the emergency treatment of nerve defects of the collateral palmar digital nerves with veinous grafting.
