Practical microneurorrhaphy.

PMID:  331185     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Microneurorrhaphy is not a panacea insuring excellent functional return following severance of a nerve. However, it does provide better results than macroneurorrhaphy. Patients note greater and stronger motor recovery, improved protective sensation, improved touch localization, and fewer painful neuromas if the principles of neurorrhaphy outlined are followed. Unfortunately "normal function" is seldom achieved, and this fact points to the necessity for additional knowledge about peripheral nerve repair.
