About function loss

When a nerve has been damaged many years before and has left the patient with permanent loss of function. in selected cases, the function can be partially restored by detaching muscles that perform another movement and redirecting them onto the paralysed muscles through surgery.

Need to know 

The main symptom of function loss from an old nerve injury is paralysis.
Longstanding and permanent nerve damage causes lack of movement, which in itself is diagnostic. At times, EMG and nerve conduction studies might be requested to confirm the quality of the muscles that need to be transferred.
Through surgery, less essential muscles are detached from the bone and redirected onto a new one to restore some of the lost movement.
