Despite major advances in the pathophysiological understanding of peripheral nerve damage, the treatment of nerve injuries still remains an unmet medical need. Nerve guidance conduits present a promising treatment option by providing a growth-permissive environment that 1) promotes neuronal cell survival and axon growth and 2) directs axonal extension.

Nerve function recovery is a major technical challenge in the rehabilitation of patients suffering from severe neuropathies. Facilitating functional recovery requires the creation of a growth-permissive environment that directs the extension and myelination of surviving neurons. To this end, an electrospun nanofiber scaffold composed of(More)
