COURSE AND RATE OF REGENERATION OF MOTOR FIBERS FOLLOWING LESIONS OF THE RADIAL NERVE

COURSE AND RATE OF REGENERATION OF MOTOR FIBERS FOLLOWING LESIONS OF THE RADIAL NERVE Abstract THE OBJECT of this paper is to record and to discuss the significance of observations on the course and rate of regeneration of motor fibers following complete interruption of conduction in the radial nerve due to gunshot wounds, simple fractures of the humerus, penetrating injuries and lacerations. The results of an investigation of simple compression injuries of this nerve have already been described (Sunderland1). Detailed observations on motor recovery have been reported by Stopford2 and by Seddon, Medawar and Smith.3 Reference will be made to the results of their studies in the appropriate sections of the text.

Abstract

Abstract THE OBJECT of this paper is to record and to discuss the significance of observations on the course and rate of regeneration of motor fibers following complete interruption of conduction in the radial nerve due to gunshot wounds, simple fractures of the humerus, penetrating injuries and lacerations. The results of an investigation of simple compression injuries of this nerve have already been described (Sunderland1). Detailed observations on motor recovery have been reported by Stopford2 and by Seddon, Medawar and Smith.3 Reference will be made to the results of their studies in the appropriate sections of the text. In the present investigation of a series of 63 lesions of the radial nerve particular attention was paid to the following points: End results Course of spontaneous regeneration and the regeneration following suture Pathologic features of the lesion, as deduced from a study of the course of regeneration Selection of References 1.
