OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Develop an hypoxic peripheral nerve injury model with a controlled injury type and two types of clinically relevant physiological measurements of function during and after recovery. The model, controlling for injury and measurement variables, would have predictable outcomes in function. The functional model could test potential therapeutic interventions with greater sensitivity. STUDY DESIGN Twenty-one rats were used in preliminary studies evaluating peroneal nerve… CONTINUE READING
