The ability of the rat sciatic nerve to regenerate into a previously frozen distal nerve segment was studied and compared to regeneration after a crush lesion. The regeneration rate in the frozen segment was 1.9 mm/day, which was approximately half of that observed after a crush lesion (3.3 mm/day). If an unfrozen nerve segment was left intact beyond the frozen section, the rate of regeneration increased to 3.2 mm/day. However, a fresh nerve segment sutured along the frozen segment did not… CONTINUE READING
