• A systematic review of functional outcomes after nerve reconstruction in extremity soft tissue sarcomas: a need for general implementation in the armamentarium

    One year ago - By Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery

    Resection of nerves in extremity soft tissue sarcomas can lead to large functional deficits. Nerve reconstructions are rarely performed and little is known on their outcomes and indications for their use even though they are essential in restoring sensation in limb salvage procedures. This study investigated current knowledge on functional outcomes and considerations to be taken before performing such reconstructions after sarcoma resection. A systematic search was performed in July 2018 in PubMed and Embase databases according to PRISMA guidelines.
