Abstract

PURPOSE:

To describe clinically apparent motor and sensory deficits in a cohort of 11 patients with isolated injury of the median nerve above the elbow and compare them against similar cases reported in the literature.

CONCLUSIONS:

Noteworthy discrepancies were identified between the clinical motor and sensory deficits described in the literature and those observed in our patients.

CLINICAL RELEVANCE:

In most patients with a high median nerve injury, only thumb and index flexion and palmar sensation warrant surgical reconstruction. Decreased grasp and pinch strength was a major finding that should also be addressed by surgery.

TYPE OF STUDY/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE:

Prognostic IV.
