The surgical management of peripheral nerve lesions has shown a significant improvement over the past 20 years as a result of improvements in laboratory experimentation, the use of the microscope, advanced knowledge of the anatomy of the peripheral nerves, and sophistication in clinical repairs. From March, 1997 to August, 2002, we treated 80 patients of the forearm nerve injuries. Of the 80 patients, 54(age range 1-68) cases of 50 patients were followed up for more 8 months.
