Background. Collagen scar formation at the cut end of a nerve, an important problem in clinical practice for neurosurgeons in peripheral nerve surgery, obstructs sprouting of axons into appropriate distal fascicles, and thereby limits nerve regeneration. Researchers attempt to control collagen accumulation in the formation of neuroma by various physical and… CONTINUE READING
