Patient outcome after common peroneal nerve decompression.
J Neurosurg. 2007 Aug; 107(2):314-8.JN

Abstract

OBJECT

This study examines common peroneal nerve decompression and its effect on nerve function.

METHODS

Fifty-one peroneal nerve decompressions were retrospectively reviewed. All patients were evaluated preoperatively and postoperatively for motor and sensory function of the peroneal nerve as well as for pain.

RESULTS

Postoperatively, 40 (83%) of 48 patients who had preoperative motor weakness had improvement in motor function. Likewise, 23 (49%) of 47 patients who had sensory disturbances and 26 (84%) of 31 patients who had preoperative pain improved after surgical decompression of the peroneal nerve.

CONCLUSIONS

Common peroneal nerve decompression is a useful procedure to improve sensation and strength as well as to decrease pain.
