Pain after radial sensory nerve grafting

A. Lee Dellon, Susan E. Mackinnon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Four cases are described in which a nerve graft to the radial sensory nerve was successful in restoring sensibility to the dorsum of the hand but failed in controlling pain. All of these patients subsequently were successfully treated with excision of the nerve graft and proximal implantation of the radial sensory nerve into the brachioradialis muscle.
