Peroneal Nerve Repair
I had a peroneal nerve repair. And a broken fibular head just under 5inch low from knee now I can't bend my knees what is the solution??
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
Entrapped nerve: You should see an orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon. ...Read more
Biphasic response: Typically, recovery occurs in two stages, with some initial improvement in the days or weeks after the surgery (as stunned nerves wake back up), followed by months of no real improvement and then finally a second stage of improvement (as regenerating nerve fibers finally grow to reach their targets). The important thing is to keep as active and limber as possible while waiting. ...Read more
Peroneal tear/ruptur: The peroneal tendons, either the brevis or longus are examined after the incisions are made and after confirmation is made via an mri. Usually the tendons are partially torn, the frayed pieces are removed and the longitudinal tears are repaired with fine sutures. Wraps can be used to cover the tendon (bovine, porcine or amniotic membranes. ...Read more

Foot drop: The common peroneal nerve branches from the sciatic nerve. It includes the deep and superficial peroneal branches. These nerves provide sensation to the anterior (front) and lateral (side) parts of the legs and to the top of the feet. They innervate muscles in the legs which lift the ankle and toes upward (dorsi flexion). ...Read more

Pain: Chronic pain and discomfort may occurGet a more detailed answer ›
My son who's 12 has nearapraxia left superficial peroneal nerve damage will he have this forever?
Neuro praxis: Refers to an injury to the insulation of the nerve called the myelin sheath. If you take away the offending cause it normally takes 3 weeks to 3 months to recover. It is unusual to last longer than that and if it does I would be concerned about on going compression or toxic effect or a more serious injury to the nerve itself called axonomesis. ...Read more

What is peroneal tendonitis? And what causes it? Can you get it from overuse without an acute injury? Back and outside ofankle and even calf nerve hurt
Overuse/Compensation: Peroneal tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendon and tendon sheath complex of the peroneus longus and brevis tendons. These tendons arise from muscles in the outside of the lower leg and course behind the fibula (ankle bone on outside of ankle). Walking on the outside of the foot (often to avoid pain on the inside of the foot or heel) can lead to this condition as can a bad ankle sprain. ...Read more

Post surgery for Peroneal tendon sublux, tendons still snap - more painful. Possible to ablate sensory nerve going to tendons to avoid repeat surgery?
Not good idea: While it is theoretically possible to ablate the sensory nerves, that would definitely not be a good idea. These are the nerves that supply sensation to your lateral foot and are important to protect your foot from injury. Better to get problem taken care of, consider a second opinion as well. ...Read more
Peroneal tendons subluxing. Extensor retinaculum repair just failed. Cavus foot from CS. Can both retinacula (2) & cavus be fixed at once? Techniques?

What are the symptoms of peroneal nerve compressed? Can it occur from ankle sprain? Fibula possibly moved and pinched nerve.
Nerve impingement: Unlikely, that the fibular bone moved to pinch a nerve. The peroneal nerve (superficial peroneal nerve) is located in the skin and can be impinged through swelling resulting from an ankle sprain. The bone, ligaments, muscle, tendons are deeper than the skin, but the swelling associated with injury can cause shooting pain, burning, tingling, and numbness. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have Superficial Peroneal Nerve Entrapment in left ankle. Starting PT. Recovery time? Bout to start 220 mile hike. Will I be okay to hike?
Nerve entrapment: It depends on what is damaged. If the nerve itself is damaged, the nerve can grow about an inch a month or so to reconnect to the where the nerve endings should be. If the nerve is intact, but the structures around the nerve have been damaged, then the recovery time might be sooner. An electrodiagnostic study could help differentiate the two. Hold off on the hike especially if you have weakness. ...Read more
Just diagnosed with deep peroneal nerve entrapment. If I end up having decompression surgery how long is the recovery? Is a steroid shot an option?
2 to 4 wks recovery.:
Yes Steroid can be an option in earlier and Mild entrapment cases. Relief is temporary though.
If your Orthopedic doctor recommended you the release surgery, he will probably doing it Arthroscopic. So the recovery will be quick. Physical therapy along with NSAID helps. ...Read more

A week before I had any swelling from peroneal tendonitis I had nerve pain from my ankle up into my calf. Does this make any sense?
Peroneal retinaculum repaired twice, peroneus brevis to longus tenodesis. New MRI shows hypertrophic tear of peroneus longus. What are my options?
I would try: And figure out what stresses are being placed on the tendon.....For whatever the reason it seems the peroneals have alot of pressure on them.....I would think of how to destrees or remove load from them or whatever is causing them to fail. ...Read more
