Intrasurgical electrical stimulation of proximal nerve stumps prior to implantation of biohybride nerve transplants shows capacities to improve peripheral nerve regeneration across long gaps

K. Haastert, R. Schmitte, D. Klode & C. Grothe
Objective: We investigated if intrasurgical electrical stimulation of proximal nerve stumps (ES) speeds up peripheral nerve regeneration (PNR) across long gaps. Furthermore, we were interested if functional motor recovery (FMR) would be facilitated by the treatment. Methods: Sciatic nerves of adult[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
