Abstract

Peripheral nerve injuries during anaesthesia continues to be a significant source of morbidity for patients and liability for anaesthesiologists. Ulnar nerve is the most commonly involved nerve. Despite the best efforts at careful positioning and padding it is not always a preventable complication. We came across a patient who developed partial claw hand due to ulnar neuropathy following modified radical mastoidectomy.
