Abstract72 fingers with divided digital nerves on one side alone had their nerves repaired and the sensory recovery assessed at different intervals of up to 2 years. Another 36 fingers with similar digital nerve injuries had their divided nerves left unrepaired and sensory recovery similarly assessed for comparison. In the 'repaired' group, the result continued to improve and by 2 years, 90% reached S3 + or above. In the 'unrepaired' group, improvement plateaued after 6 months, and at 2 years only 6% reached S3 + or above, although all had regained some protective sensibility.
