The aim of this study was to evaluate the functional effects of bridging a gap in the sciatic nerve of the rat with either a biodegradable copolymer of DL-lactide and epsilon-caprolactone [p(DLLA-epsilon-CL)] nerve guide or an autologous nerve graft. Electromyograms (EMGs) of the gastrocnemius (GC) and tibialis anterior (TA) muscles were recorded 3.5 and 5 months after bridging the nerve gaps. Furthermore, the rats' gait was recorded on video and the quality of the gait was analyzed. EMG… CONTINUE READING
