ABSTRACT
The article presents updates on hand surgery in the U.S. The surgical technique, targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR), allows for the rerouting of nerves that had formerly served the amputated part to new muscle sites. The outcomes in two cohorts of patients with rheumatoid arthritis has been investigated to address the potential benefit of implant arthroplasty. Two types of nerve conduits in a group of 42 patients with traumatic nerve gaps in 76 nerves have been compared.
