Figure 2: A middle-aged man sustained a mid-thigh laceration (a) from glass penetration and presented to the emergency department with complete foot drop, preserved plantar flexion function and spared sole of foot sensation. Post evacuation of hematoma, the partially injured sciatic nerve was mobilized and dissected (b) to reveal a partial laceration of the nerve, which had completely divided the peroneal division (c) sparing rest of the sciatic nerve. After debridement of the contused ends of the peroneal nerve, the nerve stumps were prepared for split repair with a gap length of 3.5 cm (d)
