The present work deals with the morphology of cut peripheral nerves anastomosed by primary microsurgical suture. The important question was whether the well-known anti-inflammatory, anti-exudative and fibroblast-inhibiting effects of locally applied glucocorticoids can influence the morphology of degenerating and regenerating peripheral nerves. After cutting the saphenous nerve of the rabbit and prior to its microsurgical suture the synthetic crystalline glucocorticoids methylprednisolone… CONTINUE READING
