Nerve Repair
General Image
Textbook, Berger-Weiss
This image nicely shows ‘breadloafing’ back on a peripheral nerve that has been caught traumatically.  A 15 blade or a nerve transection blade can be used to trim away any scar tissue or injured tissue to reveal the uninjured fascicles.  At this point a direct end to end coaptation may be completed if it can be done without tension.  Otherwise interposition graft or other material must be used to bridge the gap.
