Abstract

Nerve grafting has made advances in the last 100 years. One of the most significant of these was realizing the importance of adequate blood supply for successful nerve grafting. The vascular anatomy of the six potential vascularized donor nerves we have reviewed may prove to be extremely useful in reconstructing proximal nerve lesions, large nerve defects, and compromised recipient beds.
