The centrocentral nerve union with an interposed autologous nerve graft was used for the treatment of 32 symptomatic neuromas in the fingers of 18 patients. The technique was applied to bilateral as well as unilateral neuromas, using the dorsal branch of the proper digital nerve in the latter. All 18 patients showed definite objective and subjective improvement, and no loss on the early result (approximately thirty-six weeks) was found in the remainder of the follow-up (average, eighteen months).
