Abstract

Neuromas primarily arise from iatrogenic injury, trauma, or chronic irritation. Given the disabling symptoms of neuromas, an array of treatment strategies exist, with varied results. Successful treatment relies on accurate identification of the offending nerve, containment of the regenerating fascicles, and cessation of mechanical or other noxious stimuli over the regenerating nerve end. The choice of treatment depends in part on the nerve affected, whether it involves critical or noncritical sensation, and its location.
