A simple method for fabrication of electrospun fibers with controlled degree of alignment having potential for nerve regeneration applications.

Abstract

In peripheral nerve injuries where direct suturing of nerve endings is not feasible, nerve regeneration has been facilitated through the use of artificially aligned fibrous scaffolds that provide directional growth of neurons to bridge the gap. The degree of fiber alignment is crucial and can impact the directionality of cells in a fibrous scaffold. While… (More)
