Abstract

After introduction of EMG at Dhaka Medical Collage on
January 01, 2006, a total of 415 cases referred to EMG
laboratory for electrophysiological evaluation over a period
of two years
(January 01, 2006 to December 31, 2007). Among these, 7
cases diagnosed as iatrogenic nerve injuries. The subtypes
of iatrogenic nerve injuries were:
1. Accessory nerve injury: three, 2. Femoral nerve injury:
one, 3. Sciatic nerve injury: one,
4. Lumbar sacral plexus injury: one, 5. Combined sciatic
and femoral nerve injury: one
In order to investigate the causes, diagnosis & prevention
of iatrogenic nerve injuries; we have reviewed 7 cases of
iatrogenic nerve injuries. The peripheral nerve injuries
occurred due to lack of proper awareness of medical
personals. These injuries are iatrogenic injuries so it is
useful to review the mode of injuries and means of
prevention.
