Best prognosis after repair is for which of the following nerve? (AIIMS Nov 2012)
Radial nerve repair
After repair of the radial nerve the prognosis for regeneration is more favorable than for any other major nerve in the upper extremity, primarily because it is predominantly a motor nerve and secondarily because the muscles innervated by it are not involved in the finer movements of the fingers and hand.
Remember mnemonic = GOOD NERVE)
Growing Age, Only motor, Only sensory, Distal laser
Neurapraxia, Early repair, Radial Nerve, Vascularity maintain, Hand to Hand Repair.
