Table 5 Relationship between the intraoperative nerve status and the final outcome.

From: Surgical outcomes of the brachial plexus lesions caused by gunshot wounds in adults

The final outcome for intraoperative findings (%)
  Complete rupture (n = 14) Interrupted by a neuromaor/and fibrosis at the stump (n = 39) Partial rupture (n = 25) Neuroma or/andfibrosis is continuity (n = 110) Nerve is intact, only compressed by fibrosis (n = 353)
Poor 21,43 20,51 16 5,45 3,68
Fair 71,43 71,79 64 43,64 24,65
Good 7,14 7,69 20 50,91 71,67
