Post-operative peripheral nerve injury is a well-recognized complication of anaesthesia and surgery. It can lead to long-term suffering and economic problems for the patient. The Anaesthesia team involved in the peri-operative management of the patient can also face serious and protracted litigations. Awareness of this complication and knowledge about its causation can hopefully help to reduce its incidence by the use of measures for its prevention. In this article we aim to review the incidence, aetiology, diagnosis and prevention of peripheral nerve injuries associated with anaesthesia, with a detailed description of the more commonly injured nerves.
