Abstract

The authors describe a new technique for intramuscular implantation of a nerve ending after peripheral neuroma excision. Sixteen peripheral neuromas in 10 patients were excised and then implanted into muscle tissue using the Mitek anchor. The positions of the anchors were documented by immediate anteroposterior and lateral radiographs. These views were repeated at 2 months to assess any migration. All patients had resolution of the symptoms related to their neuromas. No substantial migration was noted in any of the patients. The Mitek anchor can be used as a "soft-tissue" anchor to position a nerve ending reliably at a precise depth and tension in muscle tissue with minimal trauma.
