A Photo-Crosslinkable Chitosan Hydrogel for Peripheral Nerve Anastomosis

Abstract

The predominant therapy for peripheral nerve transection is anastomosis by suture. However, sutures have been known to lead to tissue inflammation, granulomas, and poor functional outcomes. While adhesives offer a promising alternative, fibrin—the predominant bio-glue—can transmit disease. Here we examine a photocrosslinkable chitosan hydrogel for use in… (More)
