Nerves were then transferred to the vertebral canal through a submuscle tunnel and sutured with the selected fascicula of lumbar nerve roots (L1-2 or L3-4) by epiperneurial neurorrhaphy in the subdura or extradura.
Neurolysis was performed in 160 cases, epineural neurorrhaphy in 12 cases, nerve grafting in 2 cases, and nerve exploration but no repair in I case.
All patients underwent thinning and innervation of the flap by neurorrhaphy to a sensory nerve adjacent to the reconstructed area, usually to one of the sensory branches of the radial nerve.
Nerve repair may be carried out with an epineural or perineural technique; a minimal number of monofilament sutures under the operating microscope remains the current standard for either technique of neurorrhaphy. Tissue adhesives, laser neurorrhaphy, tubulization, and trophic factors have been investigated in an attempt to improve neural regeneration.
