Abstract

Peroneal nerve lesions are a frequent complication in orthopedic treatment of lesions and injuries of the lower extremities. They can be reduced very considerably by a careful check-up of the toe motion immediately after the treatment. Most of the lesions are due to pressure or tension on the nerve, leading to anemia and later on to interruption of conductability. The quicker pressure and tension are released, the better the chances for restoration of function. © 1939.
