The maximum longitudinal tension that can be applied to the stumps of a divided peripheral nerve during surgical repair is not precisely defined. Uncertainty about the threshold of unacceptable nerve tension may be due to the lack of studies on isolated and reproducible stretch, i.e., on quantified elongation without concomitant compression, crush, or… CONTINUE READING
