Abstract

Surgical treatment of traumatic nerve lesions is a matter of debate, mostly about the timing and technical aspects of the procedure. In deciding about and planning the operation, it is often necessary to repeat the electrophysiological and neuroradiological studies several times. Here we present our experience with ultrasonography taken before and after surgery: this simple and handy tool allowed clear visualization of the preoperative anatomy, thorough preparation and fast carrying out of surgery, and accurate postoperative monitoring of the graft's vitality at follow-up. Though this is a limited series, the importance of ultrasonographic evaluation in traumatic peripheral nerve lesions appears remarkable.
