  • Info Axonotmesis is a disruption of nerve cell axon, with Wallerian degeneration occurring below and slightly proximal to the site of injury. more...
  • Sunderland's second degree injury and Seddon's axonotmesis are the same.
  • Seddon's axonotmesis and second-degree are the same.
  • The most common injuries that result in axonotmesis are severe crush and contusion injuries.
  • The second degree in which the axon is damaged but the surrounding connecting tissue remains intact is called axonotmesis.
  • The second classification of the Seddon system is referred to as axonotmesis which is a more severe case of peripheral nerve injury.
  • In order of degree of severity, injury to a nerve can be described as neuropraxia, axonotmesis, or neurotmesis.
  • Lastly, axonotmesis consists of damage to the inner nerve fibers while the outer covering remains whole, and also yields a flat line in response to stimulation.
  • More severe nerve injury like axonotmesis or neurotmesis warrant the repair of the epineurium because the connective tissue is damaged.
  • According to NCV study, in axonotmesis there is an absence of distal sensory-motor responses.
  • The assessment of partial hypoaesthesia (axonotmesis) is based on the concept of the largest cutaneous distribution of the nerve branch.
  • Loss in both motor and sensory spines is more complete with axonotmesis than with neurapraxia, and recovery occurs only through regenerations of the axons, a process requiring time.
  • Seddon classified facial nerve injuries into three broad categories: neuropraxia, neurotmesis, and axonotmesis.
  • Axonotmesis is usually the result of a more severe crush or contusion than neurapraxia, but can also occur when the nerve is stretched (without damage to the epineurium).
  • The second through fourth degrees are dependent on the variance of axon discontinuity and are classified under Seddon's classification of axonotmesis.
  • In Seddon's Classification, nerve injury is described as either neurapraxia, axonotmesis, or neurotmesis.
  • Axonotmesis is classified by an interruption of the axons, but a preservation of the surrounding connective tissues around the axon.
