    Nerve biopsy is used as part of the investigation of patients with peripheral neuropathy and is particularly useful in confirming the diagnosis of peripheral nerve vasculitis. Previous studies have suggested that sampling the peroneal nerve, in combination with peroneus brevis, is more sensitive...

    Background: Sural nerve biopsy (SNBx) is associated with multiple complications such as paresthesia, pain, or numbness in the sural nerve distribution at the site of biopsy and wound infection. An accurate idea of these adverse events would be useful while taking informed consent from patients....

    Background: The sural nerve is the most commonly used nerve for grafting severe nerve defects. Our aim was to evaluate subjective outcome in the lower leg after harvesting the sural nerve for grafting nerve defects. Methods: Forty-six patients were asked to fill in a questionnaire to describe...

    Sural nerve is a sensory nerve, which supplies the skin of the posterolateral aspect of the distal third of leg, lateral malleolus, along the lateral side of foot and little toe. The sural nerve's anatomy is broadly studied in man, because it is one of the most frequently used sensory nerves in...

    The sural nerve is the most frequently used sensory nerve in nerve transplantation. It can be transplanted alone or together with the other elements of the neurovascular stalk within the superficial sural flap. The aim of this study was to define the morphologic types of the sural nerve complex,...

    Background: Sural nerve is formed by communication of medial sural cutaneous nerve, that arise from tibial nerve in popliteal fossa and peroneal communicating nerve, a branch directly from common peroneal nerve or from lateral sural cutaneous nerve. The sural nerve is universally recognized by...

    The sural nerve is formed by merging of medial sural cutaneous nerve and lateral sural cutaneous nerve nearby the middle of posterior of the leg, which arise from the tibial nerve and common fibular nerve respectively,. Then, it descends with small saphenous vein towards to lateral malleolus and...
