Reconstruction of a long defect of the median nerve with a free nerve conduit flap.

Arch Plast Surg 2020 Mar 15;47(2):187-193. Epub 2020 Mar 15.

Department of Reconstructive Surgery and Hand Surgery, AOU Ospedali Riuniti di Ancona, Ancona, Italy.

Upper limb nerve damage is a common condition, and evidence suggests that functional recovery may be limited following peripheral nerve repair in cases of delayed reconstruction or reconstruction of long nerve defects. A 26-year-old man presented with traumatic injury from a wide, blunt wound of the right forearm caused by broken glass, with soft tissue loss, complete transection of the radial and ulnar arteries, and a large median nerve gap. The patient underwent debridement and subsequent surgery with a microsurgical free radial fasciocutaneous flap to provide a direct blood supply to the hand; the cephalic vein within the flap was employed as a venous vascularized chamber to wrap the sural nerve graft and to repair the wide gap (14 cm) in the median nerve.
