This study investigated the maximum number of collaterals that can be maintained by 1 axon during regeneration of rat peripheral nerve. The tibial nerve was transected, the proximal residual, with its variable number of axons, was fixed to the distal stump and served as the donor nerve. The number of myelinated axons was calculated after 12 weeks. An(More)
ATP-sensitive potassium channels (K(ATP)) are involved in the regulation of potassium homeostasis in the nervous system, and they may play an important role in acute peripheral nerve and spinal cord injury. Here, the expression of the K(ATP) genes was monitored by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) in the rat dorsal root ganglion,(More)
A through study of the postural stability of 40 subjects has been conducted with a stabilometer and the computer system. The subjects stand on the testing platform for 10 seconds and meanwhile the sum of frequency spectrum is being analyzed. The most men subjects maintain a little sway well within timits during the trials. The testing conditions include(More)
This study aims to estimate the effects of using one donor nerve to repair the injured nerve and itself simultaneously by biodegradable chitin conduit. Proximal median nerve served as donor nerve to repair the distal median and whole ulnar nerve. Four months postoperation, the number of myelinated axons and nerve conduction velocities of the distal median(More)
Outgrowth of collateral sprouts from axons is a natural process that arises during development of and regeneration in the peripheral nervous system. Our previous study showed that if there are enough distal endoneurial tubes into which the proximal regenerative axons can grow, one axon can support three to four collaterals, at most. Here, the proximal half(More)
