Introduction: Repair of peripheral nerve gaps still represents a clinical challenge. Despite decades of research, autologous nerve grafting is still regarded as the preferred bridging material. A variety of functional tests is available to assess the functionality of axon regeneration. At present, there[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
