Peripheral nerve injury is very common, but repair is a challenging medical problem. Advances in medical sciences and technologies have however made tremendous breakthroughs in understanding repair mechanisms in nerve injury making this a fascinating area in neurotherapeutics. However, a systematic analysis of existing data is lacking, the present study was attempted to review existing literature in nerve repair studies in human beings and analyse outcome systematically.
