Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in QuickDASH (Disabilities of Arm, Shoulder, Hand) score at 2,4,8,12,16,24, and 52 post-operative weeks (Adult subjects only). [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    Adult patients will be assessed for changes in functional status using the QuickDASH outcomes assessment. The quickDASH is an abbreviated version of the original DASH outcomes measures and is comprised of an 11-item patient reported questionnaire used to assess physical function and severity of symptoms in patients with musculoskeletal disorders of the upper limb. Each of the items in the quickDASH use a 5-point Likert scale to assess the corresponding severity or functional parameter. The outcome measure is scored based on the formula ([sum of n responses)/n]-1)(25), where n represents the number of completed items. Computed scores range from 0 (no disability) to 100 (most severe disability).

  2. Changes in PROMIS Pediatric Upper Extremity/Parent Proxy Upper Extremity (PUE/PPUE) outcomes assessment at 2,4,8,12,16, 24, and 52 post-operative weeks (Pediatric subjects only) [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    The Patient Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS®) - pediatric Related Measures is a set of person-centered measures that evaluates and monitors a patient's physical health and pain (pediatric patients). Short forms containing fixed sets of 4-10 items or questions are included for each domain. All PROMIS scores are presented as T-scores where the T-score is the standardized score with a mean of 50 (range 20-80) and a standard deviation of 10. Higher scores indicate more of the concept being measures where sometimes the concept is desirable (e.g., physical function) and sometimes this it is undesirable (e.g., fatigue). PROMIS instruments are scored using item-level calibrations based on response patterns by HealthMeasures Scoring Service (https://www.assessmentcenter.net/ac_scoringservice).

  3. Change in Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) For Pain Score at 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 post-operative weeks [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    The Visual Analog Scale (VAS) For Pain is a patient reported outcomes scale whereby the patient indicates his/her current pain level by making a mark on a continuous horizontal 10 centimeter (100 millimeter) line. The distance from the 0 millimeter to the patient's mark corresponds to the amount of pain the subject is currently experiencing. VAS for Pain data are recorded as the number of millimeters from the left of the line to the patients mark across the range of 0-100 millimeters, with 0 millimeter representing no pain and 100 millimeters representing "the worst pain imaginable".

  4. Changes in Reported Pain Using the Faces Pain Scale-Revised Scale (FPS-R) assessment at 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 post-operative weeks [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    Pediatric patients will be assessed for changes in patient reported outcomes using the FPS-R. The Faces Pain Scale - Revised (FPS-R) is a self-report measure of pain intensity developed for children. It was adapted from the Faces Pain Scale to make it possible to score the sensation of pain on the widelya accepted calculated 0-to-10 metric. The scale shows a close linear relationship with visual analog pain scales across the age range of 4-16 years. The calculated score ranges from 0 ("no pain") to 10 ("very much pain").

  5. Changes in patient reported health status Using SF-36 patient reported health survey at 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 post-operative weeks [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    Adult patients will be assessed for changes in patient reported health status using the SF-36 patient reported health survey. The SF-36 measures overall health status and consists of eight scaled scores which are the weighted sums of the questions in their section. Each scale is directly translated into a 0-100 metric scale. Scoring ranges from 0 (maximum disability to 100 (no disability).

  6. Changes in KINDL Health-Related Quality of Life questionnaire for children at 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 post-operative weeks [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    The KINDL is a generic quality of life instrument used to assess Health-Related Quality of Life in children and adolescents aged 3 years and older. The questionnaire is comprised of 24 items which assess various quality of life domains using 5-point Likert scales. Calculated scores range from 0 (lower quality of life) to 100 (higher quality of life).

  7. Change in Patient Rated Wrist Evaluation [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    Patients will be assessed for changes in patient reported outcomes using the Patient Rated Wrist Evaluation (PRWE)(Applicable to Injuries Affecting the Wrist)

  8. Change in Sensory Function as measured by Medical Research Council Classification (MRCC) for Sensory Recovery [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    Patients will be assessed for changes in 2-Point Discrimination on a scale from 0 to 4 with 0 representing no sensation and 4 representing a 2-point discrimination measure between 2-6 representing normal sensation.

  9. Change in Motor Function as measured by Medical Research Council Classification (MRCC) for Motor Recovery [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    Patients will be assessed for changes in muscle strength measured on a scale from 0 to 5, with 0 equal to no movement and 5 equal to normal muscle contraction against resistance.

  10. Change in Motor Function as measured by Grip and Pinch Strength [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    Patients will be assessed for changes in grip and pinch strength measured in kg force

  11. Change in Motor Function as measured by Range of Motion [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    Patients will be assessed for changes in range of motion measured in degrees

  12. Change in Tinel's Sign [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    Patients will be assessed for presence of Tinel's Sign

  13. Incidence of Adverse Events Associated with the Placement of Avive Soft Tissue Membrane [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    Adverse events are defined as any untoward event experienced by a patient that is related to the nerve repair (whether or not considered product related by the Principal Investigator or Sponsor) or any even that has changed adversely in nature, severity or frequency.

  14. Health Care Economic Impact based on Resource Utilization and Associated Costs [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 52 weeks ]
    Patients will be assessed for cost of procedures, post-procedure medications, rehabilitation, re-hospitalization
