Hand nerve injury
Who Can Participate in the Study?
Adult patients age 18 to 65 who need to have hand nerve injury repair
What is Involved?
If you need to have hand nerve injury surgery and choose to join the study, you will be randomly (like a flip of a coin) assigned to receive one of two FDA-approved treatments for nerve repair during the operation:
- NeuraGen Nerve Guide or
- Avance Nerve Graft
You will not know which treatment you received.
You will remain in the study for 1 year.
After surgery you will need to return for five follow-up visits to have your hand evaluated and photographed and to answer some questionnaires.
