Influence of collagen and laminin gels concentration on nerve regeneration after resection and tube repair.

Abstract

In order to assess the usefulness of collagen and laminin gels prefilling nerve chambers to enhance nerve regeneration, we compared reinnervation of target organs after sciatic nerve resection leaving gaps of 4 or 6 mm followed by repair with silicone tubes in different groups of mice. Tubes were prefilled with saline solution, collagen gels, or laminin… (More)
