Abstract

A further report is made on patients with primary and delayed repair of digital nerves with autogenous denatured muscle grafts. There was evidence of continued improvement in threshold response to tactile stimuli, and discriminative function. These results were superior to those in 24 patients with conventional end-to-end sutures on clinical testing.
