An attempt was made to study the results of repair of peripheral nerve injuries Orthopaedics period 1980 to1987. Out of 143 registered patients with peripheral nerve injuries of upper extremity only 37 patients could be followed. Only 28 patients with 17 median nerve and 19 ulnar nerve injuries were evaluated. Simple and economical devices were made for evaluation of complex sensibility and coordination test. The end results showed that though primary or delayed primary repairs were found to give better results, repair done within 3 months of injury also gave good results, poorer results were obtained with more delay. Various factors affecting the recovery were also discussed. Poor record keeping system and discouraging response of the patients were found the main causes of large drop outs and poor follow up respectively.
