Once skin cleansing is complete, the wound itself can be scrubbed with gauze sponges or irrigated with pressure but using only sterile saline to which weak topical antibiotic has been added. These techniques will rid the raw surfaces of foreign body and debris, but they do not remove contaminated material impregnated deep in soft tissue. For this, there is no substitute for surgical excision, and it should be performed next. Incisions The surgeon should be prepared to extend wounds proximally and distally where necessary to identify vital structures in uninjured tissue.

By grasping the free ends of these strips of external epineurium, the surgeon can then quickly determine whether the ends will meet satisfactorily. ” This maneuver relieves tension on the nerve ends, which now abut easily against each other. The surgeon can approximate individual fascicles or groups of fascicles which have been previously selected for repair with little or no tension. It is important to note that no effort is made to close the epineurium around the entire circumference of the nerve.
