2022 Failed Nerve Decompression and Nerve Reconstruction Recording
Widely considered safe and effective, nerve decompression surgeries are some of the most commonly performed procedures. Failure to achieve expected clinical improvement or, even worse, to suffer a complication is understandably disconcerting to both the surgeon and the patient. Missed diagnoses, incomplete release, recurrent scarring, and iatrogenic injury must all be considered. Failed nerve reconstruction, on the other hand, is unfortunately a more common experience and may be related to either technical or physiologic etiologies-the differentiation of which can be challenging even for the most experienced clinicians.
