The surgical management of nerve lesions in the lower limbs. Clinical evaluation, surgical technique and results.

Abstract

The author present his experience of the repair of nerve lesions in the lower limb. The cases are classified into four main groups: traumatic lesions; acute and chronic compression; tumours and leprosy. The traumatic lesions include those associated with a clean wound, missile injuries, traction injuries and a miscellaneous group. The diagnosis and treatment of the different lesions are discussed. The results of nerve grafting using microsurgical techniques are presented. The results are good enough, even in severe traction injuries, to recommend the repair of nerve lesions of the lower limbs in the circumstances which are outlined.
