Direct muscle neurotization with long acellular nerve allograft: A case report

from Microsurgery

Nerve repair and nerve transfer are the optimal approaches to restore function to denervated muscle. When the distal-most portion of the nerve entering the muscle is compromised, these are not possible and direct muscle neurotization is considered. Researchers describe the first reported case of DMN with acellular nerve allograft. The patient is a 25 year old male who sustained a blast injury to the patient's proximal leg with segmental injury to the deep peroneal nerve resulting in complete foot drop with 0/5 dorsiflexion and toe extension. more
