Wartenberg Syndrome - an Unusual Neuropathy - Case Report and Literature Review

Almost known in the literature and underdiagnosed even in the obvious cases, Wartenberg syndrome is most often treated, superficially and as a result, with direct consequences on its evolution. These elements ultimately lead to loss of cases and reporting in the literature as a rarity or other condition of the radial nerve, superficial branch. It must be understood at first that the radial nerve is susceptible to compression in different ways along the anatomical path. Causes are all common in the upper limb, compression and trauma. The two elements (compression and trauma) affect the superficial branch of the radial nerve at the time of its passage between the brachioradial muscle and the supinator muscle, as a result the patients complain of ‘’hand pain‘’. They describe only sensitive disorders but not motor disorders. The pain is described distally by the radial foramen and is accompanied by paresthesia on the dorsal side of the hand. The present case shows a female person working in a car parts factory where they have to pick up considerable parts to inspect them. The pieces are positioned on different side, as a result he must use the muscles of the forearm to turn them.

Nervous Regeneration Allograph Type of Periferic Nerv

This article completes the problem of nerve regeneration on the allograft model harvested from the same type of individual (in this case the Wistar laboratory mouse).The approach to major trauma produced by various mechanisms and the development of a well-established algorithm, applied in a multidisciplinary team, results in a distinctly different result, both sensory and motor recovery, depending on the operative technique, the operative logistics and the type of graft. The article explains the experimental model, the subjects that were previously prepared for the operating time, the type of anesthesia that was administered, explaining why dosages and administered substances were used, the techniques used in the two batches that are totally different anatomic approach path, different as a bed of nerve regeneration but with operating technicians that do not differ in the two batches. The results are visibly different and are compared by the fi ngerprint sample. The regeneration times are different, the sensitive recurrence, the resumption of motor activity differs very little in the variables of each lot but are appreciable and different as the dynamics and value from one batch to the other.
