Abstract: Over the past decade, there have been significant improvements in neurophysiologic testing, imaging and microsurgical techniques applied to peripheral nerve(s). These have led to major changes in the possibilities for treatment and intervention for children and adolescents with monoparesis and/or identified peripheral nerve lesions. This review will present several illustrative case studies and demonstrate the utility of these techniques.
