There is no single classification system that can describe all the many variations of nerve injury.
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 5 May 2010. + (4) - (0) Permalink
From Wikipedia. Now, call me daft if you like, but I'd have thought that classifying them all as "nerve injury" might have done the job?
