Adhesion neuropathy of the median nerve with persistent pain can be a challenging problem. Currently, coverage of the median nerve with a well-vascularized soft tissue is deemed necessary after secondary neurolysis. Herein, we reviewed the outcomes of seven patients with a persistent median nerve neuropathy after a primary open carpal tunnel release or a median nerve repair, treated with neurolysis and median nerve wrapping with radial artery perforator adipose flaps. During the revision surgery, after a careful and complete neurolysis of the scarred median nerve, the distally based radial artery perforator adipose flap wi...
