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)
