Neurotendinous union as a result of unrepaired wrist laceration

Neurotendinous union as a result of unrepaired wrist laceration A 52-year-old male with a learning disability who sustained a volar laceration to the wrist is reported. He had clinical evidence of a divided median nerve and flexor tendon injury but refused operation. Surgical intervention 10 months later revealed spontaneous neurotendinous union. This caused some intraoperative difficulty in identification but was completely corrected by surgical repositioning. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals

Abstract

A 52-year-old male with a learning disability who sustained a volar laceration to the wrist is reported. He had clinical evidence of a divided median nerve and flexor tendon injury but refused operation. Surgical intervention 10 months later revealed spontaneous neurotendinous union. This caused some intraoperative difficulty in identification but was completely corrected by surgical repositioning.
