Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article deals with the treatment of 435 patients with compression of the nerve trunks of the upper extremities of 531 localizations. Operations were conducted on 351 patients for compression mononeuropathies, in 84 patients nerve trunks of the hand were compressed at several sites. A total of 160 operations were undertaken on these patients for decompression of the nerve trunks of different localizations and their combinations. The authors' experience allows them to recommend increasing the number of indications for this type of intervention, including multiple and irritative forms of compression neuropathies.
