OBJECTIVE To explore the effect of exogenous nerve growth factor(NGF) in the regeneration of adult white rabbits inferior alveolar nerve within the silicone tubes. METHODS In 24 adults white rabbits. A bilateral 8 mm inferior alveolar nerve gaps were created, and the proximal and distal stumps were inserted into a 12 mm silicone tube. The silicone tube of the right side was filled with exogenous NGF(experimental group) and the contralateral side was filled with saline (control group… CONTINUE READING
