This teenage patient sustained a glass injury to the right wrist. The median nerve was lacerated, causing numbness in the thumb, index, and middle fingers. The thumb flexor tendon (FPL) and radial wrist flexor (FCR) were also lacerated causing loss of thumb flexion and weakness with wrist flexion. The patient underwent surgical repair of the flexor tendon lacerations and median nerve. After several months of therapy, the patient regained median nerve motor and sensory function as well as good thumb flexor tendon function, and the patient returned to full previous activities. Here are intra-operative and post-operative images of the case.
