METHODS Patients in our clinics who were treated with non-surgical methods following closed reduction between 2008 and 2009 were evaluated prospectively. In this study consisting of 60 male patients, the following fixation(More)
PURPOSE Acellular nerve allograft is a new option for bridging nerve defects that allows appropriate diameter matching. The aim of the study was to compare the histologic and functional recovery of nerve defects treated with acellular nerve allograft versus cabled sural nerve autograft. METHOD Fifty-four Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into one of three(More)
