Management of peroneal nerve injuries associated with knee dislocations.
Am J Orthop (Belle Mead NJ). 2003 Jan; 32(1):14-6.AJ

Abstract

Peroneal nerve palsy after knee dislocation is a serious problem, and neurolysis at the time of knee reconstruction does not always result in return of peroneal nerve function. In light of the current state of microneural surgery, and the potential to reconstruct lengthy nerve defects, this review addresses the appropriate evaluation of peroneal nerve palsy and provides recommendations regarding surgical treatment.
