Regeneration of severed rat tibial nerves was functionally and morphologically compared with repair following the use of 3 anastomosis techniques: collagen guide tubes, fibrin glue and conventional microsurgical sutures. In addition, one tibial nerve was crushed in some rats. At ten weekly intervals, functional recovery, assessed by sciatic nerve stimulated(More)
To provide control of paralyzed limb muscles following spinal cord lesions, peripheral nerves containing motor axons from motoneurons located above a spinal cord lesion could potentially be rerouted to nerves containing motor axons located below the spinal cord lesion. To test this hypothesis in rats, the distal end of a cut tibial nerve, innervated by the(More)
