Best prognosis after repair is for which of the following nerve? (AIIMS Nov 2012)



A Ulnar nerve

B Radial nerve

C Median nerve

Ans. B

Radial nerve

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.
