Answer

See the list below:

  • Prognosis depends on the degree and type of radial nerve injury. In most cases of mild injury, recovery after several months is expected.

  • In cases where recovery fails, tendon transfer surgery may provide adequate hand function.

  • Electromyographic testing may help not only to localize the lesion but also to provide prognostic information.
