A longitudinal incision has been done on the posterior surface of each limb to dissect the tibial nerve from its origin till its termination.
The following measurements have been done in each dissected nerve (the male and female cadavers):
Demand for nerve repair biomaterials is increasing in the hospitals followed by ambulatory trauma centres due to increasing aging population and rising number of nerve injuries and nerve surgeries.
This market has been segmented on the basis of product type into nerve repair and nerve protection.
Conclusion: Spinal accessory (SA) to supra-scapular (SS) nerve transfer is important shoulder stabilization operation and if done at appropriate time, can result in an acceptable shoulder function.
Keywords: Brachial plexus injury, Nerve transfer, Nerve conduction studies.
Nerve involvement may be precipitated during lepra reactions (both Type I and Type 2 reactions) in 15-50% of patients during the course of the disease or after the completion of multidrug therapy.
The role of non-invasive imaging techniques, including ultrasonography (USG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is under exploration and can serve as an important tool to identify both silent and active nerve involvement, thereby preventing deformity and disability.
The rapidly increasing incidence of peripheral nerve
injuries and neurological disorders is a major growth driver for nerve
The human population with upper limb peripheral nerve
In 8 cadavers, the lateral cutaneous branch of 2nd intercostal nerve
(1st intercostobrachial nerve
) was seen originating as two branches (upper and lower) and piercing the second intercostal space anterior to midaxillary plane.
During complex reconstructions, manually recreating branching nerve
segments is both time consuming and technically challenging.
The clinical benefit of the use of the Flexible Collagen Nerve
Conduit in reducing the formation of painful neuromas has been demonstrated by John S.
Patients and Methods: The frequency of recurrent laryngeal nerve
injury following surgery for benign, nontoxic thyroid disease was studied in consecutive patients undergoing hemithyroidectomy, subtotal thyroidectomy or near total thyroidectomy.
Surgically implanted FES systems employing epimysial electrodes sutured to the muscle at the nerve
entry point [8-9] and/or intramuscular electrodes inserted into the muscle belly near its innervating neural structure  have been successful in restoring hand grasp to individuals with midcervical tetraplegia [11-12]; exercise, standing, and transfer ability to individuals with thoracic or low cervical-level lesions [2,13-15]; and short-distance stepping for individuals with thoracic paraplegia [5-6].
