Organisering af Perifer Nervekirurgi i Danmark

Translated title of the contribution: Organisation of peripheral nerve surgery in Denmark

Abstract

This review summarises the current knowledge of peripheral nerve surgery (PNS) in Denmark, which comprises the surgery of traumatic nerve lesions, entrapment syndromes, nerve tumours, and biopsies. Although the Danish Health Authority generally works towards a centralisation of PNS, it is actually performed at a widespread number of hospitals, of which some perform a very low number of procedures per year. International standards are highly specialised centres with subspecialists of PNS, high caseload, and integrated rehabilitation facilities. The future organisation of PNS in Denmark should comply with international standards.
