I couldn’t agree more. The digital nerve repair is an excellent opportunity to learn or practice microsurgical skills for the novice surgeon and all too often there is minimal supervision and as a result a failure to adhere to the important basic principles of nerve repair. Junior surgeons may be less likely to escalate to a nerve graft is under tension and may not have access to expensive products such as conduits or allograft and as such will make do with a simple neurorraphy, perhaps with under debridement.
