Abstract

The successful recovery of sensibility across a long peripheral nerve allograft in a 12-year-old boy who sustained a severe posterior tibial nerve injury is reported. The historical clinical experience with nerve allotransplantation is also reviewed. It is concluded that in the carefully selected patient with severe nerve injury, consideration for nerve allotransplantation can be given.
