Perioperative Nerve Injuries Nerve injuries during surgery and anesthesia can result in significant perioperative complications. These injuries usually occur as a result of patient malpositioning. The positioning of the patient on the operating table is the result of an effective compromise between what the patient undergoing surgery can tolerate from an anatomic–functional perspective and the need to provide the surgeon with suitable access. Injury to peripheral nerves in the anesthetized patient is most commonly caused by ischemia to the vasa nervorum.
