The present article is based on a study of peripheral nerve injuries for a period of one year, during a part of which time I was stationed in France, and the balance of the time in this country. A large number of the patients were examined soon after the injury; many of them a year or two after the operation and others at various periods after receipt of the wound.
1. THE SENSORY DISTURBANCES IN PERIPHERAL NERVE INJURIES
The sensory disturbances in peripheral nerve injuries do not always go hand in hand with severity of the injury. This probably depends on the anomalies often present in sensory distribution, anastomosis (especially between median and ulnar) and the location of nerver supplying adjacent areas. I frequently encountered complete sections—found so at operation—showing slight sensory disturbances; and often incomplete or partial injuries of a nerve with extensive sensory disturbances. The first applied
