Introduction: Reconstruction of peripheral nerve lesions remains a major challenge in plastic surgery. Clinical strategies to treat extensive peripheral nerve injuries are currently limited to autologous nerve transplantations. The aim of this tissue engineering approach is the development of a bioartificial[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
