Comparison of the performance of chronically versus freshly denervated autograft in nerve repair.


PURPOSE Graft choice is one of the few variables over which the surgeon has control when reconstructing nerve gaps. Because repair of chronically denervated nerves generally yields inferior recovery, we hypothesized that the use of chronically denervated nerve tissue as a graft source may compromise axonal regeneration and clinical results.
