30 mm regeneration of rat sciatic nerve along collagen filaments.

Abstract

This paper describes 30 mm regeneration of peripheral nerve axons along collagen filaments; 31-mm-long collagen filaments or collagen tube were grafted to bridge a 30-mm defect of rat sciatic nerve. The mean number and the diameter of regenerated myelinated axons were 330+/-227 and 2.7+/-0.9 microm at the distal end of the collagen-filaments 12 weeks… (More)
