From the first surgical repair of a nerve in the 6th century, progress in the field of peripheral nerve surgery has marched on; at first slowly but today at great pace. Whether performing primary neurorrhaphy or managing multiple large nerve defects, the modern nerve surgeon has an extensive range of tools, techniques and choices available to them. Continuous innovation in surgical equipment and technique has enabled the maturation of autografting as a gold standard for reconstruction and welcomed the era of nerve transfer techniques all while bioengineers have continued to add to our armamentarium with implantable devices, such as conduits and acellular allografts...

A network meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials compared the effectiveness of corticosteroid injections with placebo injections and wrist splints for carpal tunnel syndrome, focusing on symptom relief and median nerve conduction velocity. Within 3 months of the corticosteroid injection, there was a modest statistically significant difference in symptom relief compared to placebo injections and wrist splints, as measured by the Symptom Severity Subscore of the Boston Carpal Tunnel Questionnaire; however, this did not meet the minimum clinically important difference...

We investigated the efficacy of the supination-external rotation ('Sup-ER') orthosis, designed as a non-operative treatment to maintain normal anatomical growth of the shoulder, on the progression of glenohumeral dysplasia in patients with brachial plexus birth injuries. The Sup-ER orthosis was fabricated for 20 infants diagnosed with glenohumeral dysplasia after brachial plexus birth injuries and its success in correcting glenohumeral dysplasia was confirmed by objective calculations of the alpha angle on serial ultrasound findings and improvement in Active Movement Scale scores...

Idiopathic cubital tunnel syndrome is the second most common neuropathy in the upper limb. Best evidence regarding the surgical management of this condition has evolved from anterior or submuscular transposition as the former reference standard, to in situ simple release. Differences of opinion remain regarding the timing of surgery, type of surgery and adjunctive surgery. Four surgeons with Level 5 expertise were asked to answer specific questions regarding this condition.

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Tomos Richards, Ryan W Trickett
Pain after trapeziectomy is a vexing problem, most commonly due to scaphometacarpal impingement. A number of treatment strategies have been described and are examined in this systematic review. In total, 27 studies describing revision surgery for unsatisfactory results after trapeziectomy were included. Results after soft tissue or synthetic suspensionplasties, arthrodesis procedures, implant arthroplasty and costochondral autografting were included. Most studies were heterogeneous in terms of patient selection and procedure performed, and the level of evidence and methodological quality were uniformly low...

The aims of this study were to retrospectively assess the occurrence of complications or need for secondary wrist procedures after the Sauvé-Kapandji procedure, and to prospectively assess patient-reported outcomes at long-term follow-up. All patients treated with the Sauvé-Kapandji procedure in our tertiary referral hospital between January 2008 and September 2021 were identified and contacted to complete the Quick Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand and the Patient-Rated Wrist/Hand Evaluation outcome measures...

REVIEW
Caroline Leclercq, Patrick Mertens
This article reviews the recent advances or nerve-oriented surgical procedures in the treatment of the spastic upper limb. The idea to intervene on the nerve is not recent, but new trends have developed in nerve surgery over the past few years, stimulating experiments and research. Specific surgical procedures involving the nerves have been described at different levels from proximal to distal: at the cervical spinal cord and the dorsal root entry zone (rhizotomy), at the level of the roots (contralateral C7 transfer) or in the peripheral nerve, within the motor trunk (selective neurectomy) or as its branches penetrate the muscles (hyperselective neurectomy)...

REVIEW
Tim Hems, Antonina Parafioriti, Binu P Thomas, Andrea Di Bernardo
This article reviews the pathology and management of peripheral nerve tumours, including a framework for investigation and decision-making. Most tumours are benign, including schwannomas and neurofibromas, but malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumours can occur. The risk of malignant change is remote for schwannomas but higher for neurofibromas, particularly in neurofibromatosis type 1. Magnetic resonance imaging is useful for defining the relationship of a swelling with adjacent nerves but is not definitive for tissue diagnosis...

REVIEW
Gráinne Bourke, Ryckie G Wade, Nens van Alfen
Predicting prognosis after nerve injury and compression can be challenging, even for the experienced clinician. Although thorough clinical assessment can aid diagnosis, we cannot always be precise about long-term functional recovery of either motor or sensory nerves. To evaluate the severity of nerve injury, surgical exploration remains the gold standard, particularly after iatrogenic injury and major nerve injury from trauma, such as brachial plexus injury. Recently, advances in imaging techniques (ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] and MR neurography) along with multimodality assessment, including electrodiagnostic testing, have allowed us to have a better preoperative understanding of nerve continuity and prediction of nerve health and possible recovery...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Wen Zhang, Peng Hou, Tianyi Wu, Pak-Cheong Ho, Luyuan Sun, Chunyang Wang
This study reports the surgical technique and outcomes of tendon ball arthroplasty combined with proximal carpal stabilization using the extensor carpi radialis longus tendon for treating advanced Kienbock's disease. The collapsed lunate is excised and a tendon ball inserted as a spacer. A distally based extensor carpi radials longus graft is passed through the scaphoid, tendon ball and triquetrum, reconstructing the proximal carpal row. In total, 16 patients were included and the mean follow-up was 25 months...

EDITORIAL
Dan A Zlotolow
The management of brachial plexus birth injuries (BPBI) remains controversial and ever evolving. In this article, studies are examined to provide further insight into the ongoing controversies and debates surrounding BPBI. The articles are diverse and examine the topics of aetiology, demographics, reliability versus accuracy of measurements and surgical management. The management of BPBI may differ depending on resources. Outcome measures may also vary depending on geography. Future research should focus on developing consensus-validated measures and reproducible surgical techniques...

Identifying a good research question is one of the most important steps when laying the foundation of a research project. A good research question can aim to answer a hotly debated clinical issue, challenge a pre-existing dogma or make a contribution to specific aspects of a broader field of study. The difficulty in defining the question lies with pinpointing an important research topic or an area that is characterized by a lack of knowledge (the What), grasping the significance of how a precisely defined study can potentially impact on clinical practices (the Why) and determining the optimal study design tailored to answer the specific question (the How)...

Breakage of K-wires within the metacarpals and phalanges due to metal fatigue and overly aggressive joint movements are encountered occasionally. We established a simple and feasible technique for K-wire retrieval by overdrilling using a hypodermic needle. Level of evidence: IV.

EDITORIAL
Fiona C Campbell, Stuart W Jones, Doug A Campbell
Fractures of the hook of the hamate are traditionally thought to be caused by direct trauma. A review of the anatomy and function of the hamate hook suggests that fracture is more likely as a result of a fatigue response that develops in the hook from repetitive load applied by the adjacent deep flexor tendons. Additional vascular compromise, from direct pressure of the tendons on critical local vessels, reduces blood flow leading to both mechanical and vascular effects that create pathological osseous change and weakening...
