Where to repair alveolar nerve injury?

Where to repair alveolar nerve injury?

Quite difficult: The majority of injuries result in transient sensory disturbance but, in some cases, permanent abnormal sensation (paræsthesia), reduced sensation (hypoæsthesia) or, even worse, some form of unpleasant abnormal sensation (dysæsthesia) can occur.The spontaneous recovery rate for nerve injuries related to lower wisdom tooth (3rd molar) removal is quite variable ranging from 50% - 100%.Rarely. ...Read more

Nerve (Definition)

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

Can nerve damage to sciatic nerves repair/heal itself?

Can nerve damage to sciatic nerves repair/heal itself?

Maybe, maybe not: Nerve pain from sciatica almost always (over 90%) heals itself. Nerve damage is less predictable. Some nerve damage is reversible, but the healing process is very slow - years. ...Read more

Can inguinal hernia repair nerve damage?

Can inguinal hernia repair nerve damage?

Yes: Nerve injuries are rare complications of open & laparoscopic hernia repair. In open surgery, the nerve that innervates the skin of the groin & thigh is prone to injury, leading to numbness or pain. In laparoscopic repair, a tack holding the mesh can irritate branches of the same nerve, or, more rarely, catch a nerve to the leg. Chronic pain responds to injecting the nerve, if necessary. ...Read more

Carpal tunel : can nerve damage repair itself?

Carpal tunel : can nerve damage repair itself?

Yes: 98% of patients will get improvement in sensation and most complete recovery. It could take up to 3-4 months, so be patient. It also depends on how much damage you have going into the surgery (based on emg/ncv test). Permanent and irreversible nerve damage can also occur for many reasons without decompression of the nerve. ...Read more

Is surgery needed for foot drop from anterior tarsal tunnel syndrome (deep peroneal nerve entrapment) from ant tib tenosynovitis from ultrasound burn?

Something does not: Sound right about this. The common peroneal nerve can cause a drop foot. The deep peroneal nerve from ant tarsal tunnel is on the top of the foot. The nerve runs deep as the name implies and hence would not be affected from ultrasound. Entrapment of this nerve would not cause a dropfoot, it usually causes numbness to the first webspace or great toe. ...Read more

Can spinal fusion surgery cause bilateral peroneal neuropothy?

Can spinal fusion surgery cause bilateral peroneal neuropothy?

Neuropathy : Bilateral peroneal mononeuropathies are commonly seen in patients with mononeuritis multiplex secondary to diabetes, polyarthritis nodosa, nutritional deficiencies, and critical illness polyneuropathy. Bilateral and symmetrical presentation rises the possibility of lumbar radiculopathies or lumbar stenosis. Neuroimaging like MRI and electrophysiological studies like EMG and nerve conduction study could help in sorting this out. ...Read more

How to repair a pinched rotator cuff nerve?

How to repair a pinched rotator cuff nerve?

Nerve or muscle?: Rotator cuff problems include, inflammation, pressure, weakness, or damage to the tendons that constitute the rotator cuff. Conservative care w/anti-inflammatories, ice, and physical therapy. Sometimes surgery is necessary to repair a torn tendon or release pressure on the tendon. Surgery can also be helpful to release pressure on pinched nerves that supply cuff. An orthopaedic surgeon can help. ...Read more

Peroneal tendons subluxing. Extensor retinaculum repair just failed. Cavus foot from CS. Can both retinacula (2) & cavus be fixed at once? Techniques?

Peroneal tendons subluxing. Extensor retinaculum repair just failed. Cavus foot from CS. Can both retinacula (2) & cavus be fixed at once? Techniques?

Yes: the cavus is the bone position typically as in your condition at the heel. A bone cut can be made to align the heel. The retinacular repair can be done at the same time. ...Read more

How serious is ulnar nerve entrapment surgery?

Open surgery: Any surgery around the nerves has risks and potential complications. Ulnar nerve surgery is a relatively common surgery done by neurosurgeons and nerve specialists. It involves identifying the nerve at the region of the elbow and freeing it up of any scar and adhesions. Sometimes, it is necessary to transpose it or move it slightly so that it is not as easily injured. ...Read more

Peroneal retinaculum repaired twice, peroneus brevis to longus tenodesis. New MRI shows hypertrophic tear of peroneus longus. What are my options?

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

Can a radial lateral meniscus be repaired?

Yes.: It can be repaired if the tear is in a repairable zone. If it's not repairable, then it may have to be trimmed out. ...Read more

Can the pudendal nerve become entrapped or damaged during inguinal hernia repair?

Can the pudendal nerve become entrapped or damaged during inguinal hernia repair?

Shouldn't : It is inconceivable this nerve could be damaged during either open or laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair, however in medicine you can "never say never". Variations in anatomy and techniques can result in rare issues. Hope this helps. ...Read more

What is invovled after a peroneal tendon repair?

What is invovled after a peroneal tendon repair?

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

Achilles tendon & heel pain from sciatic nerve pain?

Achilles tendon & heel pain from sciatic nerve pain?

Heel pain: More likely cause is heel spur where achilles tendon attaches to calcaneus (heelbone), especially in women who wear high heels often. But sciatica is also possibility in one who has degeneration in spine. Heel spurs respond to gradual stretching of achilles tendon (i.e. Lower heels on shoes). See neurologist to determine which source is cause of your pain. ...Read more

Can nerve damage repair itself?

Can nerve damage repair itself?

Sometimes: A broad question, because there are many ways a nerve can be damaged: compression (carpal tunnel), crush, cut, etc. A "bruised" nerve can heal itself; it grows back at about 1 inch/month. If the nerve is divided, it may occasionally heal, but more often needs surgical repair--and this doesn't always result in return of function. ...Read more

Common peroneal nerves, f-waves of CPN & PTN, H-reflex, SNAP of sural nerves and superficial peroneal nerves are not recordable.( report of NCV test)?

NCV Test: A lot of times these NCV tests are inconclusive or need to be repeated. Do you have any symptoms like numbness or tingling? Any history of diabetes or peripheral neuropathy? These disorders may explain those findings. Nerve trauma can also be a possible etiology. ...Read more
