Blood flow in a chronic entrapment neuropathy model in the rabbit sciatic nerve.

Abstract

A model of chronic entrapment neuropathy in the rabbit sciatic nerve was developed to try to elucidate the pathogenesis of chronic nerve entrapment. A non-compressive Silastic cuff was wrapped around the nerve at the mid-thigh level in eight rabbits. A sham operation that only elevated the sciatic nerve was performed in seven control rabbits.
