Abstract:

Report covers a 10 year period of research both laboratory and clinical concerned with peripheral nerve injuries, their evaluation electrically and their management operatively. Studies delineating the value of each evoked nerve action potential recording for the most frequent injury type,- the lesion incontinuity are summarized as are studies on the effect of partial or fractional injury to nerve, removal of collateral blood supply of mobilization of the injured nerve, and various types of repair to nerve along with preliminary studies on the timing of repair. Stressed is the fact that many further important laboratory and clinical studies are needed and have been stimulated by some of these investigations. Author
