NERVE REPAIRS

There are three main nerves that innervate the hand, including the ulnar nerve, the median nerve, and the radial nerve. Damage to these nerves from injury may result in decreased ability to move the hand and experience feeling. Some nerve injuries may heal on their own, while others require surgery. Overall, about three to six weeks after the injury is the best time for nerve repairs that are associated with other, more complicated, injuries. Surgery to investigate a damaged nerve that is not complicated by other injuries is usually performed early after the trauma, to increase the likelihood of a full recovery. If severed, the nerve may be repaired by reattaching it directly to the other end of the nerve, or by using a nerve graft (inserting nerves from other areas of the body in place of the damaged nerve) to repair the damaged section.
surgical drainage and/or debridement
Our hands are constantly at risk for injury and infection. Infections of the hand are a common reason people seek treatment; about 25 percent of people treated by hand surgeons have infections. The treatment for infections to the hand may include rest, use of heat, elevation, antibiotics, and surgery. Surgical drainage may be used if there is an abscess in the hand to help remove the collection of pus. Debridement, or cleansing of a wound to prevent further infection and to help promote healing, may be used if the infection or wound is severe.

Once a nerve is completely severed, the distal bit degenerates and then the nerve from the cut end starts growing slowly at the rate of 1mm /day. Until then, to prevent development of contractures, deformity, it is useful to use splints or do some PT.
