Early stages of facial nerve regeneration through silicone chambers in the rabbit.


The early stages of rabbit peripheral facial nerve regeneration [N = 16], over a 10-mm transectional gap, were analyzed at 1, 3, and 5 weeks of buccal nerve entubation in silicone chambers prefilled with saline. Normal nerve pooled data were obtained in nine nerves. Chronologic morphologic and morphometic light and electron microscopic computer-captured… (More)
