The long term recovery curve in adults after median or ulnar nerve repair: a reference interval
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
This study presents a predicted five-year reference interval for the outcome following repair of the median or ulnar nerve in adults. Forty-four patients were examined with the use of a recently introduced model instrument for documentation after nerve repair that includes "sensory", "motor", and "pain/discomfort" outcomes which together constitute a summarized "total score". Analysis of the "total score" showed that follow-up time and age significantly influence the outcome. There were obvious inferior "motor" results after ulnar nerve injury, but these did not significantly influence the "total score". Significant improvements in the "total score" were seen throughout the follow-up period.
