Selective Neurectomy for Peripheral Neuroma


This presentation focuses on basic surgical maneuvers used to manipulate peripheral nerve trunks, assess their quality and function, including intraoperative electrical activity, and provides a 3-step algorithm for the surgical treatment of symptomatic neuromas in the lower extremity. It also discusses the potential benefits of surgically implanting a temporary, (4 to five days) non-biodegradable catheter for the delivery of local anesthetic solution at the point of neuroma formation, in an effort to predict just how a patient might feel after successful neurectomy. Finally, it details techniques used to contain and relocate a freshly prepared nerve stump, and shows the outcomes of these methods used in the treatment of 76 patients.
