  1. Table_ concomitant injuries_specific nerves: This table shows frequencies of accompanying bone, joint and vessel injuries for lower extremity trauma patients with distinct nerve lesions (113 femoral, 269 sciatic, 204 tibial, 538 peroneal). The column on the right side reports the overall incidence of associated injuries for 60,422 leg trauma patients
