axonotemesis

nerve injury characterized by peripheral nerve axon damage, without damage to the neural sheath; axons distal to the point of injury undergo initial degeneration but will ultimately regrow distally, within the intact nerve sheath (contrast with neuropraxia and neurotmesis)

The neuronal structure repair following peripheral nerve injury is still challenging.
A nerve injury is not like a muscle injury where you're told you'll be back in four weeks and you're back in four weeks.
It also reported that PDGF expressed in dorsal horn neurons contributes to neuropathic pain after nerve injury, (22) though how PDGF produces pain hypersensitivity remains unknown.

Conclusion: Saphenous stripping using big olive heads for the proximal portion from the groin down to the level of the knee and using small olive heads for the distal portion from the knee to the level of the ankle is the alternative method which results in minimal nerve injury and vessel disruption.
While outcomes of rotator cuff repair are less successful when associated nerve injury is present, (20) it is not necessary to wait for neurologic recovery to treat such patients with operative stabilization and rotator cuff repair, particularly when neuropraxia and eventual neurologic recovery is anticipated.
In a suspected sciatic nerve injury, NCS/EMG has an invaluable role in identifying location of the lesion, magnitude of injury, and assessment of recovery.
Therefore, awareness of the potential risk for nerve injury is important and the common peroneal nerve should be identified during the surgical repair of a ruptured distal biceps femoris tendon.
The study analyzed 202 patients treated surgically in the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, Medical University of Bialystok, in the years 1997-2007 due to the upper limb peripheral nerve injury.
The cause of injury, the presence of an associated fracture and/or nerve injury, and the difficulty in resetting the shoulder all contribute to a patient's outcome.
