What is Seddon's classification used to describe?
what are the 3 parts to Seddon's classification?
which is the most devastating nerve injury?
neurotmesis - implies compelte disruption of a nerve as well as associated CT
what is neurotmesis?
(Nerve division) implies complete disruption of a nerve as well as associated CT
what is axontmesis?
(lesion in continuity)
axonal disruption but supportive CT is maintained
what are some causes of axontmesis?
what is neuropraxis?
(transient block) - a disruption of the myelin sheath
Sunderlan'ds classifcation of second degree (Class 2) is what in Seddon?
regeneration to Seddon's axonotmesis
Sunderlan'ds classification of 1st degree (Class 1) is equivalent to what in Seddon?
what happens in first degree (class 1) of sunderland?
conduction deficit w/o axonal interruption
what happens in 2nd degree (class 2) of sunderland?
-axon severed w/o breaching endoneurium
in which sunderland classification is the endoneurium lesioned?
third degree (class 2)
what happens in fourth degree (class 2)?
only epineurium remains intact
injury requires surgical repair
what is the complete transection of nerve called in Sunderland classification?
fifth degree (Class 3)
