Severed nerve ends at the proximal site have regenerating axons with tissue rich in growth factors essential for healing. Experimental results have shown that vein grafts filled with minced nerve tissue give results almost as like free nerve autografts. By writing this case report we would like to report about a patient who had satisfactory recovery following vein graft conduit filled with regenerative tissue from the proximal cut nerve end, used to bridge the median nerve gap.
