Quantification of the functional condition of rat sciatic nerve is an important experimental procedure. In the present study, a system for management of the sciatic functional index ( SFI ) data is… Expand
We believe that the randomness of sprout regrowth is the cause of most poor experimental and clinical functional results after nerve repair. We have elaborated a technique of repair, called "nerve… Expand
Age, late repair, loss of nerve tissue, tension, and other factors are now known to influence axon regeneration and the quality of recovery after nerve repair. Many of the factors cannot be… Expand
Damage to the central and peripheral nervous system often produces lasting functional deficits. A major focus of neuroscience research has been to enhance functional restitution of the damaged… Expand
Morphometric data were obtained in 2 experimental conditions: crush lesions of the sciatic nerve of rats, and transection of this nerve followed by repair. Ratios were used in order to facilitate… Expand
The stumps of divided rat sciatic nerves were coapted by suturing the epineurium to a small rectangular device made of a sheet of polylactic acid. One month later, significant degradation of the… Expand
In spite of a constant and irrepressible growth of sprouts from the proximal stump of peripheral nerves that have been injured, functional recovery varies greatly from one case to another. To try and… Expand
The purpose of this experiment was to investigate the part played by each of the four fundamental components of a nerve in functional recovery from injury. In order to single out the role of cellular… Expand
A vein is described that allows easy identification of the fifth thoracic vertebra of the rat. Leading from the dorsal hibernating gland to the azygos vein, the vessel was present in each of 135 rats.
We describe a new method for the cutaneous repair of umbilical hernias. The cut of the skin makes two flaps suppressing the navel which is generally salient. After the aponevrotic repair which is… Expand
