Nerve injuries with severe soft tissue damage are rare and demand a complex and individualized treatment approach, in order to limit medical and socioeconomic consequences. Since uniform systematic evidence so far is lacking, inconsistent therapy standards are implemented depending on individual experiences and background of respective microsurgeons. In order to provide best conditions for further healing, basic expert consensus statements were developed in a workshop on the 38th Annual Meeting of the German-speaking Community for Microsurgery of the Peripheral Nerves and Vessels (DAM). Statements were consented in regard of the aspects: timing of nerve and soft tissue repair, techniques of nerve repair, as well as rehabilitation and healing process control.
