Abstract:
A case is reported, where the median nerve was entrapped in a supracondylar humerus fracture, not preventing closed reduction. As serious impairment of the median nerve function did not improve within ten weeks, the nerve was explored and dissected out of the humerus using microsurgical technique, leading to complete recovery of the neural function. The purpose of this report is to draw attention to the fact, that the median nerve can be enclosed in supracondylar fractures reducable to good position and further, that delicate dissection of the nerve out of the bone does not necessitate sacrifice of its continuity.
